PARIS, 17 June 2015. Accenture is at Paris Air Show showcasing how industrial-grade, Internet-connected wearable technology can improve manufacturing, operations, supply chain, and maintenance processes. This demonstration aims to illustrate how smart glasses technology can enhance real-world industry applications using barcode scanning, data retrieval from the cloud, contextual instructions, augmented reality, 3D viewing and voice command.

Accenture and Airbus have delivered a proof of concept, using the latest wearable technology, to help Airbus operators reduce the complexity of assembling cabin seats and decrease the time required to complete this task. Through this proof of concept, a manufacturing professional can use digitally enabled, industrial-grade smart glasses to improve the accuracy and reduce the time required to complete the cabin seat marking process. This proof of concept shows how wearable technologies offer new and important benefits in the aerospace and defense industry.

Using contextual marking instructions, the smart glasses display all required information for an operator to help mark the floor faster and reduce errors to zero. In addition, the eyewear technology, implemented by Accenture, also offers interactivity by granting the professional access to features including barcode scanning, data retrieval from the cloud, voice command, and augmented reality.
