How can wearable technologies help the MRO workforce?
Aviation maintenance technicians (AMT) encounter a host of physical challenges and hazards on the job. In addition to the need to access instructions from maintenance manuals while completing hands-on tasks, an AMT regularly has to lift and move heavy aircraft parts, perform strenuous overhead work and face exposure to potential toxins in aircraft paint and fuel. Some of this work has been simplified through the adoption of paperless workflows or the assistance of robotics and drones, but could new innovations that an AMT wears on their body take things a step further?
