Motorola Solutions latest bet is on a new class of hands-free enterprise mobile computers that use advanced voice recognition, head gestures and video streaming to navigate applications to access business-critical documents and schematics. With the so-called HC1, Motorola Solutions aims to redefine how work gets done.
“The HC1 is a game-changing, hands-free mobile computing solution—aimed at helping enterprise users work smarter and safer,” said Nicole Tricoukes, senior maverick, office of the CTO at Motorola Solutions. “It represents a paradigm shift in how we envision future mobile workers interfacing with computers—using augmented reality to overlay instructions and linking with remote experts to provide real-time feedback.”
The HC1 will be released in the first half of 2013 as part of a global product launch. According to Tricoukes, HC1 will be commercially available through PartnerEmpower, Motorola Solutions’ worldwide channel partner program.
Primarily, HC1 targets maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) applications. “It is best suited for mobile workers in field service industries—military and defense, manufacturing, aerospace and aviation, utilities, telecommunications, and industrial construction,” explained Tricoukes.
