As part of the deal, the firms will deliver end-to-end enterprise wearable technology implementations, including ANSI certified smart glasses, an embedded Linux software platform, and advanced features and applications to manufacturing, construction, field services and other deskless industries in North America and Europe.

XOEye Technologies CEO Aaron Salow said: "Demand for wearables in the workplace continues to increase as requirements for efficiency, workplace safety and compliance across many sectors are becoming increasingly commonplace, and in some cases mandated.

"We recognized early on that our greatest value was to focus on developing the platform and applications our customers needed to achieve their business goals, and allow our partners to focus on perfecting the eyewear and other hardware sensors."

XOEye will pack Vuzix’ M100 smart glasses with its XOLinux operating system and Vision cloud-based management and communications platform to offer wearable computing environment suitable for the toughest frontline work scenarios within manufacturing, construction, field services, and widely distributed organizations.

The devices will be installed with an enterprise-grade operating system, XOLinux, developed specifically for business applications and to integrate with existing technology infrastructure.

XOEye also noted that it will also provide customized services including training, development, consulting and ongoing maintenance services in support of its platform solutions.
