Acenture, Airbus develop wearable technology for aircraft assembly using Vuzix smart glasses

Vuzix Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI) was recently highlighted in an Accenture article focused on wearable technology used to optimize the assembly of Airbus aircrafts, the company said.

Airbus was tasked with helping operators reduce the complexity of assembling cabin seats and decrease the time required to complete this task. Accenture and Airbus collaborated to develop a state-of-the-art application for wearables in aerospace using Vuzix industrial-grade smart glasses to improve the accuracy and reduce the complexity of cabin furnishing.

Accenture and Airbus delivered this initiative in less than a month and Vuzix smart glasses were used to improve the accuracy and reduce the time required to complete the cabin seat marking process. The initiative between Accenture, Airbus and Vuzix smart glasses marked the first industrialized usage of wearable technology on the final assembly line for a major aircraft manufacturer.
