Enhancing Technical Work Performance With Smart Glasses

“Lantronix’s Open-Q 626 micro SOM technology helped jumpstart the design of Youbiquo’s Talens Holo Augmented Reality Smart Glasses, quickly bringing the product to market.” – Pietro Carratu, CEO, Youbiquo

Challenge: Create Comfortable and Functional Augmented Reality Smart Glasses

To be truly effective, augmented reality smart glasses need to be lightweight and simultaneously bring both the technician’s task and computer into the field of vision while also enabling remote communication.

The challenges included:

  • Incorporating sensors, camera and microphone into the glasses
  • Tying them together with necessary on-device processing power
  • Enabling wireless connectivity for remote communication
  • Ensuring secure boot, wireless communication and secure updates
  • Delivering quickly to improve the time to development and market

Solution: Lantronix Open-Q 626 μSOM

To create the Talens Holo Augmented Reality Smart Glasses, the Youbiquo designers chose the Lantronix Open-Q 626 µSOM integrated with the Qualcomm® APQ8053-Pro SoC processor. The result delivered the ideal balance of advanced processing power, heat dissipation, wireless connectivity and power efficiency in a small, lightweight form factor for the smart glasses design. Its built-in software solutions include 3D rendering, computer vision and natural language processing.
