»In ten years every fourth production workplace in Germany will be equipped with smart wearables. Smart glasses, watches, tablets, vests and gloves will revolutionize the productivity of manual workplaces. They enable the integration of humans into the internet of things. That's exactly where the ideas of oculavis start.«

»Smart Devices offer enormous improvement potentials for work processes. Within productive rollouts, early and active considerations of the "human factor" from a work psychology perspective are crucial to success.«

»Wearables enable new fields of applications as well as cooperative business models. In the first instance convincing hardware is needed. Especially in production engineering deployed software's degree of adaption and depth of integration will be decisive.«
Dr.-Ing. Mario Isermann

»Wearables and Smart Devices show their strengths especially in complex situations and in international collaboration. Currently, many potentials remain untapped due to inefficient communication. The possibility to understand problems quickly and to solve them efficiently together means a significant competitive advantage.«
