Smart Helmet: IoT Wearable Device

Smart Helmet allows you to get remote support in industrial environments to quickly solve operational problems.

Smart Helmet is a IoT wearable product for remote support and remote technical interventions in industrial environments.


The Use of IoT for Remote Maintenance and Support

The Smart Helmet allows the live-mode communication between the technical offices and the on-site operator.
This smart and wearable device helps to optimize maintenance and support processes and, at the same time, ensures efficiency and comfort for the wearer.

In designing the Smart Helmet, our team of designers and engineers focused on the analysis of the different components and their specific function, and on the ergonomics of the helmet, creating the first prototypes.

Wearable Product Design: Elements and Style of the Smart Device


For this project, ZAAFDesign started by studying the layout of the internal components for their maximum miniaturization. We studied the movement system of the visors compared to the central unit, and their assembly process.

All Smart Helmet components communicate with the customer’s proprietary software, thanks to which it is possible to follow the operator’s interventions. The helmet is equipped with 3 elements for live-communication:

  • – The front camera, which allows the service center to see what the operator is working on.
  • – The binocular display that allows the operator to view photos, videos and diagrams sent by the service center.
  • – The manual camera that gives you the flexibility to show the experts important details placed where it is difficult to get with the main camera.

The Smart Helmet is also equipped with comfortable headphones that reduce external noise to a minimum, with an integrated microphone that allows you to communicate hands-free with the support center .

Minimum Viable Product (MVP): Prototyping for Validation on the Market

The first production of the Smart Helmet was made using 3d printing. Within our design process, we propose and suggest to startups and companies the use of an MVP strategy: we have created the minimum product to test on the market thanks to the in-house instrumentation we have.

It was thus possible to simulate the performance of the plastics and subsequently engineer the materials according to the IP67 certification.
