Vuzix Smart Glasses highlighted in Accenture post on Airbus aircraft assembly
Wednesday, 19 April 2017

Vuzix Corporation, a leading supplier of Smart Glasses, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies and products for the consumer and enterprise markets, is pleased to announce that the company was recently highlighted in an Accenture article focused on wearable technology used to optimize the assembly of Airbus aircrafts.

Airbus was tasked with helping operators reduce the complexity of assembling cabin seats and decrease the time required to complete this task. Accenture and Airbus collaborated to develop a state-of-the-art application for wearables in aerospace using Vuzix industrial-grade smart glasses to improve the accuracy and reduce the complexity of cabin furnishing.

Accenture and Airbus delivered this initiative in less than a month and Vuzix smart glasses were used to improve the accuracy and reduce the time required to complete the cabin seat marking process. The initiative between Accenture, Airbus and Vuzix smart glasses marked the first industrialized usage of wearable technology on the final assembly line for a major aircraft manufacturer.

"We are thrilled to be working alongside Accenture, one of our key system integrators and Airbus on this initiative to reduce the complexity of assembling cabin seats and complete the tasks at hand in less time than conventional methods," said Paul J. Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix.
