National Pothole Day

MobileWorxs supports National Pothole Day with its Mobile 3D imaging solution

 

 

In support of National Pothole day on Wednesday, 15th January this year, MobileWorxs lent its support by highlighting its 3D imaging solution that takes the hassle out of identifying and measuring potholes on highways.

 

National Pothole day is an initiative started by Mark Morrell, known as Mr Pothole, who has worked tirelessly for many years to raise awareness and funds in the industry and with government about the state of the UK’s national highways.

 

MobileWorxs’ Managing Director, Andrew Cahill commented, “We aimed to leverage National Pothole day to raise awareness of the consequences of road defects. These are not only limited to vehicle damage, increased insurance claims, but also present substantial risk of injury or even fatalities especially among motorcyclists.

 

“We also extended an offer of a 30 day free trial of our 3D mobile measurement system to road authorities, and will work with them to report back on results,” he added.

 

MobileWorxs, a UK-based enterprise mobility specialist, has been working with GPC Systems to market a 3D pothole software solution designed to identify and measure the depth of potholes for highways and road maintenance.

 

According to MobileWorxs’ Managing Director, Andrew Cahill, traditional methods of measuring pot-holes are slow and restrictive and involve time-consuming manual inspection and calculations to assess the extent of the surface repair.

 

MobileWorxs integrates the 3D imaging and modelling software with the Intel RealSense camera, which is mounted on a mobile handheld device or tablet, so that inspectors can fast track the process by taking a photograph of the pothole on site.

 

“The measurement software instantly analyses the depth and width of the pothole from the photograph and calculates the volume and type of materials needed for repair. This technology will change the future of pothole repairs forever and go a long way to support the objectives of National Pothole day.  Workers will no longer have to physically measure a pothole, therefore decreasing the amount of labour required and in turn increasing time efficiency,” said Cahill.

 

Statistics show that there has been a 29% increase in the number of potholes filled in England and London, the equivalent to 1 every 17 seconds. “Using the imaging solution, we could make this time even shorter. And even though there has been a general increase there are still 2,500 potholes reported per day on average,” he added.

 

In addition, our imaging solution is more accurate than manual measurement and integrates with other systems, providing an improved audit trail and legal documentation.

 

The MobileWorxs’ team recently shared a demo of the measurement solution with Mark Morell, who commented after the presentation:  “The 3D solution is a great piece of technology for 3D pothole scanning that not only provides depths, measurements and volumes for materials, but also makes it safer for highway staff to deploy due to less time spent on carriageways.”

 

Cahill says that this 3D solution is suitable for the public sector and authorities that handle road infrastructure maintenance and repairs, as well as the construction industry at large.

 

MobileWorxs will also supply consultancy software support and advice on suitable mobile devices to support specific 3D projects. For more information visit: https://www.mobileworxs.com/solutions/3d-pothole-measurement/

Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

Five Key Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

Five Key Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

Advancing technology and a shift in work habits have seen more employees working out of the office by leveraging the use of mobile devices and cloud based services to improve business tasks.
Creating solutions that map processes and increase productivity is a moving target. So what do we think will be the five key enterprise mobility trends for 2020 ?

1. IoT- the Internet of Things

It’s everywhere! a system that connects all your devices that can exchange data with each other through human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. Statista predicts the installed base of IoT devices is forecast to grow to almost 31 billion worldwide by 2020, and 75 billion by 2025.

Using IoT can bring many benefits to businesses. Reduced cost, next generation real time tracking, and seamless work flow. All of which create a more efficient and smooth running business

Some Companies have already introduced the use of the IoT within their warehouse systems. Amazon the global e-commerce giant have made significant movement in warehouse management automation. They have 493 warehouses covering around 180 square million feet globally. 100,000 robots are in use so far.

Another sector that can make use of the IoT is healthcare. According to Frost and Sullivan, the internet of medical things could be expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 26.2% and reach $ 72,000 million by 2021.

Gartner believes that the providers of Internet of Things platforms are currently fragmented and would benefit greatly from cobbling together a better ecosystem where data is shared more broadly. 451 Research believe that at the moment a relatively small number – Nineteen percent of companies are using, planning to use or will be evaluating the use of IoT in their organisations.

2. 5G

4.5 billion Mobile users worldwide are subscribed to 4G data plans, Ericsson predicts that figure to rise to 7.7 billion by 2021. But now we have the introduction of 5G. Tele companies everywhere are now testing out fifth generation mobile networks.

A comparison between 4G and 5G, would see users accessing 4G networks to download one feature- length film in eight minutes. The New York times reported users with 5G connections would be able to complete the same activity in fewer than five seconds.

5G will enable developments in lots of industries and will leverage the adoption of IoT. A hugely significant one being healthcare. Qualcomm imagines a future in which patients who may need extra monitoring, such as a person who recently suffered a heart attack, could wear special sensors to track their vitals at home- if something goes wrong hospitals or doctors can act quickly and effectively due to the speed of 5G. Market research future projects that the global telemedicine market will increase at a compound annual growth rate of 16.5 percent from 2017 to 2023.

3. UEM Adoption Will Accelerate

Increasing numbers of IoT endpoints including mobile devices are spurring businesses to secure them more businesses seeing the benefit of Unified Endpoint Management.

Recent polling by Enterprise Mobility Exchange suggests UEM adoption reached 25% during 2019. In large part due to the continued adoption of Windows 10 as one of the key Enterprise Mobility Trends for 2020

4. Further Decline of the Desktop

Technology is forever advancing and is becoming more mobile. Seems like Desktops other than for gaming are in serious decline.  IDC predicts that desktops will face a year over year decline of 1.9%. Whilst Notebooks/Mobile Workstations and Detachable Tablets are expected to take 53% of all Personal computer shipments by 2023

5. Microsoft Surface Sales Continue to Get Stronger

The Surface is becoming a more common sight in Enterprise deployments. From a rough start in 2013 Microsoft have managed to build a portfolio of devices that combine what users expect from a mobile device whilst addressing the productive goals of an enterprise project. Although the first Quarter of the current financial year  showed a slight dip due to a large scale product refresh Surface sales year on year over the last four years are growing at a compounded rate of around 20%+per year.

Microsoft do not spilt out sales by division but it is thought that the Surface is now accounts for around $2 billion of Microsoft’s $33 billion quarterly turnover.

Rugged Microsoft Surface Case Drop Test

Rugged Microsoft Surface Case Drop Test

 

 

To test the durability of a competitors Surface Pro case, the boffins at MobileDemand performed a head-to-head drop test against the MobileDemand rugged Surface Pro case. Tablets with cases were dropped from 4-foot to plywood over concrete. The goal of the test is to end up with a fully functional unit showing no physical damage after 26 total drops to all corners edges and faces.

Both products claim MIL-STD-810G, which is a series of tests that are designed to determine how well a device can put up with general physical abuse while in operation. To pass the drop test portion, up to 5 devices may be used to pass all 26 drops. MobileDemand takes it to the extreme and uses only ONE tablet to pass all drops!

Watch out for vendors not specifically stating a drop height or being short of drop detail for their product.

Does this make your Surface indestructible  – certainly not and we don’t recommend you try the rugged Microsoft Surface case drop test at home but its good to know we have thought about what sort of punishment your tablet might encounter.

The facts about Google Mobile Services (GMS) in the Enterprise

GMS, what is it? How does it affect Android devices? Do you really need it? Chances are you’re reading this because those are all questions you have been asking yourself (either that or you’re subscribed to our newsletter). Over the next few blogs we aim to look at the history of the Android OS and break down its key areas to see how it compares against other operating systems. In this first part we will look at what GMS is and how it affects Android devices. We will also be looking at the facts about Google Mobile Services (GMS) in the Enterprise to help determine whether or not you really need it.
