Smart helmet for construction workers, and E-commerce moves to AR at MWC 2017

2017-02-27, 09:00
Cybercom presents the safer construction site of the future and personalised stores at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, 27 February – 2 March. 

“Today’s technology makes almost anything possible, but to what benefit? Together with our clients we are moving from words to actions and simulating new services and products by developing prototypes in our Innovation Zone,” says Magnus Karlsson, Advisor, Cybercom.

Personalised stores 
Cybercom has developed an application that furnishes a room and uses Augmented Reality (AR) to visualise how the furniture fits. The application has been demonstrated to furniture industry companies, which are interested and will participate in further development of the application. We are testing the Lenovo PHAB2 Pro, one of the world’s first smartphones with Tango – a new technology from Google that offers augmented reality for games and tools. You simply look through the smartphone to view items and information as a filter over reality. Each customer can adapt and realise their own shopping experience 24/7, at home and at their own pace.

Connected helmet makes construction safer
Together with a client Cybercom has developed the next generation of construction site with the connected helmet, to improve safety and quality. Having the helmet connected online provides a wide range of important features, such as being able to ensure the right person with the right training is in the right place, that the wearer has the right certification and training to operate machinery and equipment, is in a safe zone and has evacuated an area at risk, is wearing the helmet, and much more.

“Health and safety is a key consideration when developing this kind of IoT solution. We will discuss issues and challenges at the demonstration. The helmet is connected to a workforce management platform for data collection and presentation of statistics on a dashboard in real time,” says Rafal Rudnicki, Business Solutions & Partnership Manager, Cybercom.

We look forward to welcoming you to Cybercom’s booth, 8.0I11 in Hall 8.
