Connected Worker

Enabling Workers to Collaborate Safely & Efficiently from Remote Locations

Connected Worker is a data-driven solution to enable instant, actionable data for key personnel in real-time. It arms workers/technicians with real-time displays of asset/equipment sensor readings & historical data (schematics, historical trends, etc.) to optimize their workflow and processes. Head-mounted, hands-free equipment increases safety & enables live, bi-directional video & audio communication that connects field technicians with expert resources & instructional libraries at any time.

Connected Worker can also be utilized for remote training in a multitude of environments. Remote guidance functionalities augment training procedures for new/less experienced employees & help operations centers troubleshoot issues virtually. This reduces time to action & better documents/catalogs recurring issues. With instant access to asset data & remote guidance from SMEs, workers are empowered to make more informed decisions in less time.

When we committed to investing $4B in the Intelligent Edge, we had confidence because of partners like CBT, who have the talent to help achieve our vision of what’s next.

How CBT Uses RealWear to Implement Industrial IoT

CB Technologies’ Founder & CEO, Kelly Ireland, sits down to discuss the importance of our relationship with RealWear. This video was made at the RealWear Summit where CB Technologies was a Platinum Sponsor and gave presentations on implementing Idustrial IoT technologies at Texmark’s Refinery of the Future.

CB Technologies Becomes Inaugural CEI Member at HPE Discover 2019

June has been a big month for the CBT team, sponsoring and exhibiting at three major national conferences over the first three weeks of the month. After attending PTC LiveWorx, June 10-13, we headed straight out to Las Vegas for HPE Discover.HPE Discover is more focused on information technology (IT) than LiveWorx, but our goals remained the same: demonstrate that our methodology for Industrial IoT is unique and effective. We wanted to show that CBT is truly ahead of the crowd because of ou…

This Chemical Plant Cut Maintenance Costs In Half With HPE’s IoT Offering

Object detection technology: The next big thing

Seagate Technology inspects tens of millions of computer storage drive parts daily. The media that goes into them. The heads. The wafers. The completed assemblies and outer shells. For much of the company’s history, this inspection was a time-consuming and costly process. To achieve the quality the global company’s customers expect, hard disk and solid-state drives would be tested once, twice, or even three times before human beings gave them a final blessing in what’s known as sequential in…

What the intelligent edge is and why it’s useful

The term “Intelligent Edge” is used in many ways, but perhaps the best way to think of it is as a place. The edge is where the action is. It’s a manufacturing floor, a building, a campus, a city, your house, a crop field, a wind farm, a power plant, an oil rig, a telecommunications outpost, a sports arena, a battlefield, in your car, in the sky, or under the sea. It’s everywhere everything is, and it’s where the “things” are in the Internet of Things (IoT). The edge is “intelligent” because …

Edge computing yields deeper insights, faster

Edge computing drives smarter operations in every industry. Learn how. There are many different kinds of edges: a manufacturing floor, a building, a campus, a city, a crop field, a wind farm, a power plant, an oil rig, a sports arena, and more. Massive amounts of data are created and can be collected and analyzed at every edge. When used in context, and in a timely manner, this real-time data can yield all sorts of interesting insights. Edge computing use cases include: Improving saf…
