Wearable Computing

Wearable Computing - Android Solutions

Warehouse & Distribution Centres have traditionally relied upon the deployment of handheld computers in the workplace to record vital stock data and help manage order picking processes, however more recently there are now more versatile hardware options available in the form of wearable technology that offers users and administrators many long term benefits.

In addition to being simple to use and operate, courtesy of its Android operating system, the latest generation of wearable computers provide organisations with a reliable and robust hardware solution that have already proved suitable with virtually any type of WMS or ERP system, regardless of it's size, scale or environment.

The Newland WD1 (Android) is a rugged wearable computer combining enterprise-class features with powerful data collection capabilities and offers a compact 2.8  inch touch screen for easy viewability and data collection. In addition to this, the WD1 provides a secure yet comfortable arm mount that ensures the hardware is well protected from damage or drops and therefore minimizes the risks and repair costs that can sometime be involved with deploying mobile technology into the workplace.

Flexible Options

The WD1 also provides convenient connectivity options for scanning barcodes with a range of different devices that can be connected by Bluetooth. These devices enable operators to quickly scan barcodes at the same time as retaining both hands free for manual handling tasks at all times.

The WD2 is the perfect hands free scanning accessory for the WD1 wearable computer - it connects seamlessly via a paring barcode and can then be worn on either hand to send back collected barcode data to the host application. The wearable glove means that operators can keep both hands free for other tasks required during their work shift.
