The question

The Covid-19 crisis created more urgency to support employees as experts were no longer able to travel. That is why the Damen Shipyards Group asked the VR-Expert team what digital ways there are for providing remote support.

The solution

Damen Shipyards Group eventually put together a RealWear HMT-1 solution consisting of hardware, software and services, the VR-Expert team played a guiding role in putting together the kit. The RealWears were chosen because of the robustness of the product and its suitability for use in industrial environments.
