HC1 was recognized for its innovation in enterprise wearable computers

Schaumburg, Ill. – May 5, 2014 – Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) has been recognized with a Bronze Edison Award for the HC1 headset computer. The HC1 is the first in a new class of Motorola hands-free enterprise mobile computers that leverages advanced voice recognition, head gestures and video streaming to enable users to access and navigate business-critical documents and applications.

The Edison Awards symbolize the persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Edison, while also strengthening the human drive for innovation, creativity and ingenuity. The awards were presented at the Edison Awards & Gala held on April 30, 2014 in San Francisco.

KEY FACTS

  • The HC1 can be used in harsh environments and most remote locations where access to complex graphical data or text is needed and using a laptop or handheld device is impractical without obstructing vision.
  • Designed for field services and the defense, utilities, telecommunications, aerospace and aviation markets, the HC1 can be used for maintenance, repair, operations/overhaul (MRO) and training and simulation applications that improve inspection time and accuracy, reduce labor rates and increase safety.
  • It leverages innovative technologies such as a micro-display equivalent to that of a virtual 15-inch screen, advanced voice recognition, head gesture controls and video streaming to navigate applications that access and view business-critical documents and schematics.
