New wearable tech app launched to help offshore workers

The software company Eigen has launched a new app, designed to give offshore oil and gas workers real time access to information through wearable devices.

The new system has been developed with Lundin Norway and is designed to give offshore workers easy and fast access to operational information from headsets or helmets with a visor interface.

Using special image processing technology or by quickly entering search terms, workers will be able to automatically identify and display equipment parameters, maintenance history and any alerts or alarms that have been generated recently.
