Vuzix Partners with Sensory to Bring Speech to Smart Glasses
Through a new partnership with Vuzix, a supplier of video eyewear and M300 smart glasses, Sensory will deliver TrulyHandsfree voice recognition on the M300 to improve the efficiency of workflows in warehouses, in the field, in telemedicine, and for many other use cases.
The partnership enhances voice recognition functionality, navigation, and control of the next-generation Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses. The voice trigger, command and control operations with Sensory use embedded speaker ID and speaker verification technology based on deep machine learning technology.
The M300 integrated with Sensory technology enables hands-free voice navigation of the user interface. Users will be able to create company-specific libraries of commands to complete core tasks. Within the field of telemedicine, the Sensory TrulyHandsfree-enabled M300 will allow physicians to dictate and create medical records electronically while conducting examinations. The speech-to-text function will enable insurance companies, for example, to create records in the field while an investigator is reviewing a damaged property or vehicle.
With Sensory TrulyHandsfree, the ultra-low-power voice recognition technology is embedded within the device and does not require an Internet connection.
"Our goal at Vuzix is to maximize the functionality we provide for our wearable technology in enterprise. We are thrilled to be working with Sensory to offer advanced speech recognition control on Vuzix products," said Paul Travers, president and CEO of Vuzix, in a statement. "The use cases for the M300 next-generation smart glasses continue to multiply as we partner with companies like Sensory that are leaders in their fields."
"We are pleased to partner with Vuzix to offer their M300 customers an embedded speech recognition solution that can be customized to fit countless different enterprise applications," said Todd Mozer, CEO of Sensory, in a statement. "Enabled with our TrulyHandsfree technology, the M300 will offer an intuitive hands-free user experience with industry-leading accuracy and unrivalled performance in all types of environments."
Voice technology enhancements make the Vuzix M300 more robust and capable in noisy environments.
