RealWear Launches New Thermal Camera
Thermal technology created with FLIR
Modular camera design connects to the Navigator 500
Worldwide launch of RealWear’s thermal camera
On November 1st 2022, The AVR Lab’s partner, RealWear, launched their new Thermal Camera, the first in the world to be hands-free and voice controlled. RealWear are a leading AR (Augmented Reality) and MR (Mixed Reality) wearable solutions provider and have partnered with Teledyne FLIR’s thermal expertise to create this new digital tool which has extended capabilities for the modern frontline worker.
The modular design of RealWear’s Navigator 500 means the thermal camera module is able to be connected into the device with ease and continue to give the frontline worker built in voice recognition with the ability to capture high resolution visible spectrum image or a variety of thermal and colour modes. Frontline workers will be able to determine temperature issues through this camera capture particularly in critically important equipment including pumps, pipes, wiring and motors.
Voice activated and hands free for inspections and to diagnose issues.
Get a new perspective with thermal and visible sensors to see what you can’t see with the naked eye. Spot issues before they escalate.
Built to last by maintaining ruggedness and IP66 rating to use in dusty and damp environments with your Navigator.
Use cases of the thermal imaging camera include inspections for electrical, mechanical, plumbing and HVAC. Instances of installation readiness, process monitoring or line monitoring in various environments are provided with flexibility, safety and overall efficiency by using a connected hands-free device through voice control. Greg Cooper, Innovation Engineer, Manufacturing from American Honda Motor Company has been quoted by RealWear as part of the thermal camera’s launch press release – “As a XR wearable evangelist for Honda, the idea of leveraging the modular design of RealWear Navigator 500 is a no-brainer”. Greg states that “A fully hands-free thermal camera will give our technicians another superpower to get the job done fast. For example, a hands-free fully voice-controlled thermal enables us to immediately show what we’re doing to address airlocks and ventilation leaks to the reliability team to give them the confidence that our engines and systems are reliable and meet our high-quality standards.” The auto industry will benefit their frontline workers by rolling out this technology in addition to other industries that are leading the way with AR/MR ruggedized hardware including mining, oil and gas, energy and utilities and field service maintenance.

The AVR Lab was able to display the thermal camera’s on the day of their launch (on the 2nd of November in the Australian time zone) to the Australian market at the International Mining and Resources Conference (IMARC) at the ICC in Sydney. This technology was demonstrated by The AVR Lab and RealWear personnel on the stand which included Ashley Pearce, ANZ Technical Officer and Chris Parkinson, Chief Technology Officer at RealWear.
