Univet 5.0 Safety Smart Glasses by Fabio Borsani

Home > Winners > #59408


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Univet 5.0

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Safety Smart Glasses

INSPIRATION:
There are no smartglasses available on the market dedicated to industrial and professional use. The inspiration comes from a protective goggle, 6X3, of the Univet portfolio, which has a in-depth ergonomic, superior comfort and excellent wearability, panoramic lens can be perfectly worn over prescription glasses, exclusive UDC coating, possibility to quickly replace the lens with a special release, facial support compatible with half masks, additional facial protection, indirect ventilation system

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A specifically designed pair of safety glasses, light, comfortable, safe, equipped with the holographic waveguide technology for the most comprehensive augmented reality experience dedicated to the industrial and professional use. A safety eyewear designed to comply with EN 166 and ANSI safety standards, Over-Spec in order to accommodate operator’s existing prescription glasses, provides monocromatic information with a monocular projection system with a 3D adjustable position to fit several pupillary distance and different application needs.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The model 5.0 allows a safety glass to go from a passive to an active approach. All the typical intrinsic features of the safety glasses have not changed while the protection against impacts according to the requirements of CE and ANSI (frontal, top and side coverage areas) have been supplemented by new active functions such as: the ability to accomodate the holographic lens light, and therefore all the information needed to perform functions which normally would require the user to look away from the action or make it necessary to use other devices. The fast and intuitive adjustment option that allows the holographic viewer to be in the optimum viewing position for every user (even with prescription lenses) makes the flow of the information transmitted an ideal aid and benefit to enhance the productivity and the quality of the work done. Example : • A logistics operator will receive all the information about the pick-ups that arrive on the viewer, an information highlighted and confirmed as a result of the user's action with the scanner reader. • an assembly unit operator will receive directly onto the viewer all the information about the components to be assembled and the steps to be taken that will be confirmed by the user from time to time, if necessary, for example to go to the next step using either the TAP mode on the touch area of the device or through a voice command.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
one year, Brescia (Italy)

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The 5.0 Univet model is the aesthetic / technical / functional result obtained using Know-How and the thirty-year experience in the field of personal protective equipment for eye protection, coupled with the choice of the most productive materials and construction techniques able to meet the requirements project inputs that were: • Fitting: obtained by designing and modeling the device directly to 3D on a "normalized CE and Ansi" head. The full knowledge of the materials has allowed the project to obtain a perfect fit both with Western or Asian morphology, offering a design that is always in direct relation to the sections of the eyewear and the various areas (for example the temples) that had to deform in controlled motion to avoid excessive pressure on the head while maintaining perfect stability in the frontal area. • Lightness: Made with materials such as "Grilamid TR90 LXS", which guarantees chemical resistance, an excellent twist modulus, a low specific weight and a guarantee of "reliability and product resistance" even with reduced sections. • Portability: obtained through a design that takes into account the various weight balance to be positioned because, for technical needs, part of the electronics and the viewing module are placed on one side of the product. The possibility of adjusting the nose also allows to balance and distribute all weights in a balanced manner on the head. • Functions: obtained by designing an intuitive system in the settings (nose and holographic module) and in the interchangeability of the components (for example the lens)

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The Smart glasses are a wearable technological device that can add information to what the human eye can see. A pair of glasses allow to drive information in the visual field of the user in a more efficient way if compared to other devices (such as smartphone and tablet), or the wearable ones (smart watch and smart band). Although in the last years the Smart Glasses have been growing significantly, they are still in an early stage, especially if they are addressed for the industrial market. The combination of Univet's twenty-year know-how in the field of Personal Protective Devices, together with the Sony's optical engine, has been an ideal development synergy to create the first pair of smart and innovative eyewear, an Augmented Reality Solution specifically dedicated for the industrial and professional applications, with the aim to improve the operators’ performance never forgetting the maximum protection and the eyes safety, the Univet’s mission since the early days. The Univet VisionAR smart glasses with Augmented reality has a rechargeable Li-Ion Small Battery (for hot-swap), and the possibility to add many other optional items such as: accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, ambient light sensor, vibration motor, camera, Touch Panel, Status LED, Additional Sensors (IR Camera, ToF Camera, Temperature, Barometer), GSM worldwide (2G/3G/4G) & GPS module, etc. The very thin lens, less than 2 mm., with 85% of light transmittance, reproduces a real hologram, compared to the average competitors who instead use prismatic systems or light deviators; therefore in display mode off, there is no interference with the user's field of vision and when the display is on, the text and / or the images are overlaid on the visual field. The glasses are over spec, with monocular projection system, adjustable position to fit for several pupillary distances, interchangeable front lens and they are certified according to EN 166 and ANSI Safety norms.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
To design a pair of glasses which could: accomodate an optical lens for augmented reality, accomodate prescription glasses, accomodate optional and removable items (camera, sensors, etc.), comply with safety norms, have an envelope shape to include side protection

CHALLENGE:
to place into a pair of glasses which must comply with strict safety standards, an optical engine for Augmented Reality
