Why wearables are shaking up the transportation industry

Use of smartglasses within transport and logistics can be compared to voice technology, whereby commands are spoken by an operator and actioned by a local device or remote service, which helps to increase productivity levels and eliminate errors. However, whilst voice is effective to a degree, it has had limited potential for applications outside the four walls of a warehouse or depot to date. Smartglasses on the other hand, offer seemingly infinite applications for mobile and field based workers to enable cost and efficiency savings, using a combination of tiny computer connected to a heads-up display, with an integrated camera, microphone, and built-in connectivity.
