Pivothead builds AR safety glasses using Intel's JouleIntel shows how its new Joule technology can be used to advance computer vision using a set of augmented-reality safety glasses.
Announced the latest [UNKNOWN] in that family. I'm pleased to announce to you today Joule, the newest in highest performance maker platform Intel has made. This platform combines powerful computer vision, a vast hardware and software ecosystem Choice of operating systems and a complete suite of software tools. Joule will seamlessly transition from prototype to scale. Whether you're innovating in robotics, machine visioning, intelligent gateways, almost any application can be done best with Joule. And I'd like to invite Diana on stage to show you just want Jewel can do with our demo here. Hey, Diana. Hey Brian, how you doing? So this isn't quite as big as Jeff's jet engine, but I'm getting closer, so what do you have here for us? All right, well after all that high tech you've been showing, I'd like to talk about safety glasses. But not just any safety glasses, these are from Pivot Head and they contain an integrated high quality camera. We've augmented their solution with Intel Jewel and Airbox is experimenting with this platform for their Future Factory project. With the Advanced Computer Vision capabilities, we're able to provide realtime feedback to factory workers as they go about their tasks. An Intel Jules, small sized, and more power envelop make this light weight device that can easily wear all day. And we're doing a computation right on Intel Jules so there's no need for additional connectivity. So an example and why I brought this little plane segment here, Brian I know your expertise with drones is well known but I think maybe it's been a while since you've tried to construct a full fledged aircraft? Luckily nobody's riding in the jumbo jet I built. So there's no worries there. All right. I'll save comment on that but tens of thousands of bolts. Many different sizes, shapes, colors, materials. You want to make sure the right bolt is in the right location. So you can do a quality [INAUDIBLE] at the end of final assembly. Another alterative might be to take something that the workers are wearing already, the safety glasses because they're for safety, and actually do a bolt verification in real time as they're going through their tasks. We take a look? Sure. Now this is meant to be an audio input to you, correct? Correct, yes. So you can see When I put the glasses on here and then we'll putting video up on the screen. But this is just so you can see what I'm seeing. Or you can see what the glasses are seeing. The workers themselves they're not seeing any video they're just going through their normal job wearing their safety glasses, doing the various bolt insertions. You can see we're scanning the patterns here. So the glasses are continuously scanning looking for any potential bolt mismatches, but the workers are just doing their job as usual. They don't have to do anything different. The glasses will keep an eye on things and if the glasses see that there are any potential bolt mismatches, they will alert. Error in positions one and two. Like that, they will alert me with an audio notification just letting me know. So, I'm not changing anything. I'm just getting alerts to warn me that there might be a mismatch. And it will also give me the option to have a remote call, voice over IP call with a remote expert who can actually see what I'm seeing and provide additional guidance if necessary. So very straight forward doesn't really change the worker's jobs but just helps them ensure 100% accuracy on the bolts So you think about the efficiency right, real time tracking of work projects like this and 100% tracking. Every bolt inspected, basically. I like that in a plane. Yeah, basically that'll give me a lot more confidence in the next jet I fly in as a result. Thank you very much for showing us this morning, Dara. Thank you, Brian. [MUSIC]
