Vuzix Corp. (VUZI) has partnered with HeadApp to produce Glass4Flight, an application for pilots that connects WiFly, which collects aircraft and flight data in real time and links it with Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses, creating a virtual glass cockpit.
The application will be available for purchase April 15 at the AERO2015 Expo. In this video, Maurizio Cheli – a test pilot for combat aircraft and veteran of a NASA space shuttle mission – flies with the Vuzix M100.
HeadApp’s Glass4Flight app, developed by Eco-Mind and DigiSky, creates a virtual glass cockpit for the M100 Smart Glasses wearer by displaying information such as heading, aircraft speed, aircraft altitude, flight time, flight level, route information, traffic avoidance information, estimated time at next waypoint, and more.
Testing of Glass4Flight with Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses is taking place in Turin, Italy in collaboration with the local Aero Club and is in its final stages of testing. Fifteen planes equipped with the Glass4Flight “Vuzix Ready” app were used in the testing phase.
