Epson supplies Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 with smart glasses and more

By

Epson is supplying the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team with Moverio BT-200 smart glasses and other products.

Epson has become an official partner of Mercedes AMG Petronas, and is supplying the Formula One team with Moverio BT-200 smart glasses, plus inkjet printers, scanners, video projectors, and other wearables including health sensing products.

The two companies were somewhat vague about how the products will be used.

"As part of this partnership we will be looking at all opportunities where Epson’s expertise can help Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team better its performance on the track. This is where our Moverio BT-200 smartglasses and other products come in,” said Epson Australia MD Bruno Turcato.

Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport head Toto Wolff said "It is always a pleasure to work with forward-thinking companies and Epson’s products are a natural fit for our race and manufacturing operations.

"Epson’s use of innovative technology to deliver performance is perfectly aligned to what we strive to achieve in Formula One."

The Moverio BT-200 smart glasses (described by the University of South Australia's Wearable Computer Lab director Professor Bruce Thomas as "clearly superior") run Android and can be used to display 2D or 3D images.

Other local institutions using the BT-200 including the CSIRO, the University of Western Sydney, Griffith University, and Monash University.

Moverio BT-200 smartglasses cost $849 and are available from Epson.

The Australian Grand Prix will be staged in Melbourne next month.
