Wearable technology, such as Google Glass, offers potential benefits to engineers in industrial settings. We designed and developed a wearable solution for industrial maintenance, which 1) provides workflow guidance to the user, 2) supports hands-free operation, 3) allows the users to focus on their work, and 4) enables an efficient way for collaborating with a remote expert. The prototype, which was demonstrated at InnoTrans 2014, the largest international trade show for train technology, received positive feedback from many potential users and customers.
