Dynabook enhances dynaEdge AR Smart Glasses with Vision DE Suite 3.0

24th June 2019, Neuss, Germany - Dynabook Europe GmbH (formerly Toshiba Client Solutions Europe GmbH), has announced the availability of Vision DE Suite™ 3.0 with new Task Flow capabilities, which include hands-free task flow, task flow creation, task flow assignment and task flow reporting, all designed to improve efficiency, quality and operating flexibility for enterprise customers. The addition of these capabilities reinforces the dynaEdge DE-100 and AR100 Viewer Smart Glasses as the premiere Windows-based, enterprise-grade Assisted Reality solution on the market.

Vision DE Suite 3.0 is a software engine designed to maximise the functionality of dynabook’s innovative AR smart glasses solution. The new features are intuitive, easy-to-use and ideal for industries requiring hands-free, step-by-step instructions, such as maintenance processes, standardised manufacturing procedures, and training.

Vision DE Suite running on the dynaEdge DE-100 mobile mini-PC uses the power and performance of Windows 10 Pro to deliver the solution required, while maintaining security across your IT network.

Benefits of the new Task Flow capabilities include:
  • Hands-free task flow –When using a Taskflow through the dynaEdge and AR100 HMD (Head Mounted Device), the worker receives accurate instructions and can work safely with their hands without needing to refer to a computer screen or printed manuals. Voice control can also be enabled to allow the worker to navigate through a Taskflow without removing their hands from the work they are doing.
  • Task flow creation –A Taskflow is easily created as a step-by-step sequence in a web-browser using a drag and drop method which allows task flow designers to easily incorporate audio, video, photo and PDFs to create highly detailed instructions and training materials. As the Taskflow stipulates how a particular step is to be performed, the opportunity for error is reduced.
  • Task flow assignment –Taskflows can be allocated to single workers or groups. With the Taskflow being delivered to the worker via the AR100, efficiencies are gained in that each instruction is delivered at the correct time, and can be directed to run a set number of times or be available for an infinite period of time. Should a worker need extra assistance when carrying out a process using a Taskflow, Vision DE Suite also provides the ability to make a remote expert call to a qualified person in the office to get around the problem as quickly as possible and reduce the potential for errors.
  • Task flow reporting –Each step of a Taskflow is logged and can be reported to ensure quality standards are met or the auditing of a process can take place.

  • “We continue to add important features to our Vision DE Suite to create a complete AR Solution designed to improve efficiencies for enterprises with frontline and field workers,” said Damian Jaume, President of Dynabook Europe GmbH. “The addition of Task Flow capabilities demonstrates our commitment to understanding our customers’ needs in the wearable enterprise marketplace.”

    The arrival of Vision DE Suite 3.0 builds on the existing capabilities of the dynaEdge AR Smart Glasses, which include: Live Video Collaboration, Photo Capture, Video Capture, PDF, Photo and Video Viewer, Real-Time File Synchronisation, Remote Management Console, Flexible Navigation/Control, Voice Commands, and Real-Time Alerts. Dynabook will also offer a version of Vision DE Suite 3.0 without Task Flow capabilities.
