DAQRI is an Augmented Reality company set on transforming the future. Today at CES 2016 DAQRI unveiled the next-generation DAQRI SMART HELMET. The DAQRI Smart Helmet is powered by the 6th Gen Intel Core m7 processor.

This Smart Helmet, to be displayed at CES 2016, also features the Intel RealSense technology. The helmet is an industrial-grade, human-machine interface. The helmet inserts real-time information in its experience.

The aim is to maximize safety, productivity and well-being for workers in a variety of industrial settings. The info inserted includes Augmented and Mixed Reality work instructions, safety information and mapping. 

The helmet was released with an on-stage display. The DAQRI founder and CEO Brian Mullins gave attendees a first look at the new helmet. The launch occurred during the keynote of Intel CEO Brian Krzanich’s CES keynote.

The on-stage demonstration of the DAQRi smart helmet showed its capabilities. The DAQRI smart helmet had been in the pilot phase with Fortune 100 partners. The partners range from aerospace, construction, oil & gas fields. 

The DAQRI smart helmet also contains the DAQRI INTELLITRACK computer vision and navigation technology. The helmet also boasts Industrial-grade, 360-degree sensor array with high-definition video.

Additionally the thermal vison sensors in the helmet increases worker safety. The helmet has been designed for comfortable all day long wear ability. 

DAQRI SMART HELMET core features include:

  • Sixth Gen Intel Core m7 processor
  • Intel RealSense technology
  • DAQRI INTELLITRACK computer vision and navigation technology
  • Industrial-grade, 360-degree sensor array with high-definition video
  • Thermal vision sensors for predictive maintenance and enhanced worker safety
  • 4D Augmented Reality displays offering an industry-leading field of view
  • Designed for comfortable, all day wearability
  • Live equipment data visualization
  • Integration with DAQRI 4D Studio augmented work instruction platform

“Intel is transforming industry with its advanced technologies. Intel powers some of the world’s most impressive products and, with the addition of its latest processor and RealSense technology into DAQRI SMART HELMET, we introduce the most advanced human-machine interface to the market,” said Mullins.

“We have already demonstrated how the use of Augmented Reality hardware and software solves problems for our partners and, with the addition of Intel technology, we are supercharging DAQRI SMART HELMET so that we can continue to drive the future of work.”

“The future of smart and connected devices includes Augmented Reality,” said Bridget Karlin, managing director of Intel’s IoT Strategy Office and CTA board member.

“The DAQRI SMART HELMET is a great example of integrating advanced human-machine interface into existing devices to make something smart and solve a potential problem.”
