Mitchell, Qualcomm Enable Smart Glasses for Collision Repair Facilities

Mitchell, a leading provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the collision repair industry, has developed a proof-of-concept XR (extended reality) smart glasses solution for collision repair facilities, in strategic collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Mitchell CEO Alex Sun and Qualcomm Technologies’ Hugo Swart will discuss the solution and showcase the proof of concept at the 2019 Mitchell mPower Conference on Oct. 1, 2019.


The Mitchell smart glasses solution utilizes commercial smart glasses. The solution gives repairers a single tool to access and utilize the resources they need to enable a proper and safe repair, during the repair, without disrupting their workflow.


Through use of extended reality, repair technicians save time by operating the glasses hands-free, using voice activation to access the most up-to-date, vehicle-specific repair procedures, within their field of vision.


“Mitchell’s leadership in bringing the first integrated smart glasses solution to the collision repair marketplace is a testament to our continued innovation and commitment to proper and safe repair,” said Olivier Baudoux, SVP of Global Product Strategy, Auto Physical Damage at Mitchell International. “We look forward to sharing our concept with the audience at the upcoming mPower conference.”
