WORKERBASE is a platform to optimize manual work in Industry4.0. It has been created after 18 months of research at the global R&D unit of a large conglomerate company active in the fields of industry, energy and infrastructure solutions. We have spent many days in factories talking to managers and workers and observing how work is performed today. We have identified several areas in which manual work processes could be improved and bundled our research results into the WORKERBASE platform. Our founding team has a combined experience of more than 30 years in IT, manufacturing, mobile and product development. Modern software architecture Our services run on a modern event-based software architecture that allows for integration of any existing system. Hardware and Software Platform We do not stop at the software level but go the last mile to deliver and end-to-end platform that is optimized for your needs. Strong industry background Our team brings a wealth of combined IT and manufacturing experience to craft state-of-the-art solutions for manufacturing problems. Optimize before you automate Instead of jumping directly to a total automation scenario you can easily harvest existing benefits using our platform. Using Wearables to get work done When equipped with the right software stack, wearable devices offer a strong unique interaction platform for the worker.

Wandelbots is a german startup that enables non-programmers to teach industrial robots faster and cheaper using smart clothing. Based on sensors attached to clothes, the Wandelbots software backend tracks human motion to live-control industrial robots. Operators can teach automation tasks by demonstration. The software backend builds a Machine Learning model based on several demonstrations and generates automation worklfows. They can be refined and optimized with the software tool. The generated processes are self-adaptive, so learned processes can automatically be used in dynamic environments. This adaptation includes automatic Anomaly Detection, process adaptation and MES-integration.

DigiLens is a Silicon Valley-based startup revolutionizing AR displays through innovative waveguide optics and proprietary materials. The company licenses optical nano-materials and holographic printing tools to leading manufacturers of wave-guide optics.

DigiLens’ mission is to be one of the world’s leading waveguide display technology providers. With the most creative, innovative and profitable products, our customers can merge the digital and real world imagery that augments their customers’ realities.

IoT Solutions

WorkHero combines Rufus industrial Wearables and cloud enterprise software to bring the most advanced productivity suite to your workforce. From the warehouse to the battlefield, Rufus increases productivity, safety, and accuracy. With a WorkHero subscription, your operations achieve superhuman results with the latest tech, best-in-class service, and complete team visibility.

Glass is a hands-free device, for hands-on workers.

Increase workforce efficiency using wearables WORKERBASE has created an End-to-End platform for creating apps that solve business problems in manufacturing. Using our system you can update your legacy processes and realize immediate returns on your investment The WORKERBASE platforms includes a Smartwatch specifically made for industrial settings and a lightweight Industry 4.0 Software platform. The platform is open by design and allows to integrate existing business systems and a range of hardware devices. As such, ur platform is not limited to the use of smartwatches but can also integrate e.g. tablets or existing MDE devices. WORKERBASE breaks down the complex problems in manufacturing and logistics into small standalone apps that work on our wearable devices.

The company’s flagship product is the HMT-1, the first ruggedized head-mounted wearable Android-class tablet computer that frees a worker’s hands for dangerous jobs. The hands-free monocular HMT-1 is purpose-built for Connected Worker programs in the industrial enterprise, safely controlled with your voice, even in noisy environments.


Aretas designs and builds wireless sensors to measure and report on metrics such as; gases (CO, CO2, NO2, SO2); environmental metrics (temp, humidity, noise) to industrial processes (pressure, process counts, strain, etc)
Sentinel Air System detects cigarette smoke, alerts your team via email or text and logs the event. Sentinel Air System is also packed with valuable sensors that provide unparalleled insight into indoor air quality levels and energy savings opportunities with real time temperature, relative humidity, CO2, VOC, odor, PM 2.5, and even light levels and sound.

Want scalability, speed, and security? Use our freeware hosted cloud-based service, focus on your IoT solution, and rest easy ensured of uBeac’s high availability, reliability, scalability, and security. Connect your gateways and devices with defined URIs, IPs, certificates, custom headers, and usernames/passwords.

Combine your data flow with external services using custom scripts and powerful API. Route device data back to existing services such as AWS, IBM, or Microsoft Power BI. Integrate with external messaging services such as IFTTT, Twilio, WhatsApp, Telegram, SMS, and Email to enable alerts and triggers.

Focus on your goals knowing that nothing is slipping through the cracks. Utilize charts, indicators, gauges, maps, and graphs for seamless visualizations and create dashboards using these widgets to deliver insights. Real-time and historical time-series IoT data are available for dynamic analytics.

TEACHING ROBOTS MADE EASY Demonstration-based teaching: HUMAN-CENTERED PROGRAMMING OF ROBOTS. Programming industrial robots is a complex, time-consuming and expensive tasks, done by experts. Today, most of the industrial have to be re-programmed when the task, the process or the surrounding changes. Wandelbots provides a solution for that. With Demonstration-based Teaching robots can be programmed without writing a single line of code. Now, the task experts are able to teach robots even in dynamic and complex environments. By showing the robot how a certain task shall be performed, the concrete control program is learned and automatically generated. Our solution is: - Easy to use - Highly flexible - Highly adaptive

The followings are their products on IoT solutions:

MonoHUD is to minimize the risk of getting into a serious accident from motorcyclists by having distraction-free information via a monocular display. The revolutionary personal HUD design combines a full colour, two-layer waveguide with a tiny, super bright image generator which can be permanently fitted into a helmet.

Crystal is smart eye wear which companion to smart phone. It is able to merge physical and digital content and proven enterprise applications like service and logistics, process and or manufacturing engineering.


ArHUD is a wide Field of View (WFOV) display designed for AR and eventually AR+VR applications. Whether it’s a product or architectural visualization, consumer gaming, telepresence or night vision, the ArHUD is already being field trialed, superimposing sensory or computer-generated data over the real world in life saving situations. For gaming, forget the TV screens. Users will interact face-to-face with their friends and family, duking it out without confining themselves to a couch. As micro-display chips used in pico-projectors increase in resolution and reduce in size, ArHUD will eventually be used in immersive, low latency VR applications, switching between AR or VR as the see-through outside world is blocked. ArHUD applications are limited only by the imagination of the developer.

AutoHUD has double Field of View then the convention HUD for automobiles and reducing the component volume to one-sixth of the traditional size, paving the way for AR applications in all of the automotive industry.

AeroHUD is FAA Certified, not only can pilots see telemetric data like compass, Altimeter and speed, but also full 3D graphics of terrain, helping them clearly see approaching hills and the exact location of the runway—all whilst in white-out fog.It makes the pilot, especially those in small aircrafts or executive jets, more confident because they have a clear understanding of their status overlaying their clear forward view.
