From the article:

Topcon Positioning Group is collaborating with DAQRI, an augmented reality company, on wearable technology designed to change the way construction and survey professionals interface with the job site.

DAQRI is the creator of the DAQRI Smart Helmet, an industrial-grade wearable that seamlessly connects humans to their work environments by providing information about the world around them.

Topcon and DAQRI will work together to create a solution designed to make workers on the job safer and more productive through the use of augmented reality technologies. They plan to do this by integrating DAQRI’s hardware and software solutions with Topcon positioning solutions…

…“We are committed to developing innovative solutions that power the future of work and Topcon is at the forefront of the industry with some of the most innovative products that are being used by millions of workers across a variety of environments,” said Matt Kammerait, vice president of product, DAQRI. “This makes them the perfect partner to integrate the Smart Helmet into existing workflows. We look forward to seeing how our partnership re-defines the nature of ‘work,’ by setting a new standard for wearables in the AEC space.”
