Wearables to instruct employees

Smartwatch notifications informing of malfunction

When working with manufacturing machines, there is always the possibility of malfunction. As these can in the worst case stop the whole manufacturing process, they require fast reaction. In this POC, smartwatch notifications were used to inform the specialists what needs to be fixed and where. In order to deliver this information as fast as possible, the solution was to send this information straight from the machine to the smartwatch.
