Motorola Solutions introduces HC1 headset mobile computer to improve productivity, collaboration

WASHINGTON, 24 Oct. 2012. Motorola Solutions Inc. (NYSE:MSI), a provider of mission-critical communication solutions and services, has unveiled its HC1 headset computer.

The HC1 is the first release in Motorola's new line of hands-free enterprise mobile computers designed to leverage voice recognition, head gestures, and video streaming. The head-worn mobile computing system is well suited for use in harsh environments and remote locations, where access to complex graphical data, text, or video is needed and using a laptop or handheld device is impractical.   

The HC1--for field services and defense, aerospace, and aviation applications--can be used for maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) and training and simulation applications. The device can help to improve inspection time and accuracy, reduce labor rates, and increase safety.

Field technicians responsible for the maintenance and repair of complex machines and vehicles can receive expert assistance almost instantly on-site, says a spokesperson. Military defense forces, special public safety teams, and commercial customers can practice simulated events and crisis scenarios, as well as perform live training, with real-time trainer feedback and mission- or business-critical guidance.

The HC1 headset computer provides hands-free, mobile computing with help from Kopin Corp.'s optical micro-display technology platform, providing a 15-inch, laptop-size screen.

The HC1 provides local document access and, when connected via local Wi-Fi or a Bluetooth connection to a Motorola MC75A, MC65, ES400 smartphone or mobile hotspot, exchanges data between the headset computer and remote networks.

The HC1's remote connectivity and optional camera accessory can transmit pictures or videos, enabling collaboration between a remote expert and a field-based associate on the job site to resolve issues quickly, reduce travel costs and downtime, and improve productivity.
