Wearable technology keeps offshore workers informed

In collaboration with oil and gas company Lundin Norway, software provider Eigen has designed an app which pairs with wearable devices to provide oil and gas offshore workers with real-time information.

Using the tool, offshore ‘digital’ workers are given instant access to operational data through the app itself or a headset with a visor interface. Information about industrial equipment can be accessed either through image processing or by manually entering search terms, offering data on past or planned maintenance, recently generated alarms, live performance data and documentation.
