 Potential uses of Intel Realsense 3D Camera in Tablets

In this blog we will take a look at the potential future uses of a Intel Realsense 3D cameras, some of which are currently being tested there required environment. Check out our previous post on what Intel Realsense is and how it works.

Where could Intel Realsense 3D Cameras be used?

Intel Realsense 3D camera technology brings an entirely new toolbox to many industries. Firstly let’s briefly cover some of the applications of Realsense 3D in devices.

  • Computer front facing cameras/ webcams and VR headsets
  • Mobile computers/ tablets and smartphones
  • Areal drones

In this blog we will focus on the uses in tablet devices as the front facing/ webcam camera applications use a short range technology. They are uses for things like facial recognition and motion detection, popular within the gaming industry and education. And then machines such as drones use it for object detection and automation.

Moving onto Realsense in mobile devices. When Intel launched the R200 unit which allows rear facing long range cameras to feature in mobile devices it opened up a whole new level of use for the technology. It could now be used for measuring distances, depth and scanning environments into 3D. We’ve had the chance to get hands on and explore the MobileDemand xTablet8650 that features this technology and demo some of the software currently available. Some of the biggest potential uses are in

  • Logistics and warehousing – For the measuring of boxes, pallets and stock, measurements can be calculated in less than a second.

Potential uses of Intel Realsense 3D Camera in Tablets

  • Medical –Monitor the depth and size of wounds, as well to track progress.  Allowing greater efficiency and clinical decision making.
  • Highway maintenance – Calculate the total size of potholes, cracks and damages. This would give a more accurate measurement for reinstatement calculations and a better understanding of the damage to the surface.

Potential Uses of Intel Realsense 3D Camera in Tablets

  • Surveyors and service engineers – For taking 3D scans of areas and environments. A more detailed result can be produces than typical measurements.
  • Airlines – Allows passengers to accurately measure luggage before arriving at airport. Allows airlines to get a more accurate understanding of how much space is being used and provides an audit trail of checked baggage.

How To Manage The Transition From MEAP TO MADP

 

What is A MADP – Mobile Application Development Platform

MADP refers to an inclusive group of products and services that allow mobile applications for the Enterprise to be developed. Think of MADP as different from the traditional app development tools. Enterprise Mobility generates unique challenges that are different from those faced in the development of consumer mobile solutions.

MEAP to MADP  So what..?

MEAP has been around for a while and can usually be characterised as an interface with existing back end systems to enable data and applications on mobile devices. Whilst popular they were often a jumbled set of “parts” for developers to cobble together with custom code, leading to time-consuming and costly development projects. Headaches teams undertaking B2B enterprise grade app development could do without. In contrast the MADP helps to build a set of common features and services that can be leveraged in mission critical apps for integration to multiple platforms in a “we need it yesterday” business environment.

MADP Platform Selection Essentials

  • Single skill set that client developers can adopt and use.
  • Support for devices to work in network disconnected mode.
  • Make use of dynamic data.
  • Well proven barcode thermal print and GPS support.
  • Built in Mobile Device Management – MDM
  • Desktop console to manage the entire system.
  • Simple to deploy and integrate.

 

Pick a Highly Regarded MADP Supplier

How Windows 10 Home is Different to Windows 10 Pro

How Windows 10 Home is Different to Windows 10 Pro

Unless you have been living under a rock, or on holiday you could not have failed to notice the launch of Microsoft Windows 10 earlier this month.  The objective is to have the same OS across a myriad of devices and finally have something to compete with and beat Android. At a practical level it’s worth pondering how Windows 10 home is different to Windows 10 pro. This is a key question for enterprise mobility projects with a preference for Windows considering a BYOD deployment.

What version of Windows 10 you are looking at will be optimised for smaller screen sizes allowing apps to look the same and sync across mobile and desktop devices instantly.

In the enterprise this effectively means the end of the .NET based Windows Mobile 6.5 which has for many years been the stalwart line of business OS for the PDA format. Windows 10 mobile is due to be made available at the end of 2015 and will have all the new ingredients of Windows 10 including the Edge browser but not IE. Given the right device hardware you will be able to plug into a display and utilise the Continuum interface.

Upgrade

If you are already on a previous Windows version and upgrade those running Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 will move to Windows 10 Home Edition. Windows 10 Pro replaces Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Professional and Windows 8.1 Pro. Even Home Edition gets the Edge browser Cortana voice controlled assistant and biometric login.

Windows 10 Pro will be the OS of choice for those businesses looking for more compatibility and security. Home Edition will be just fine for those looking to leverage the Edge browser managing media and doing rudimentary Office functions.

If you are unsure that your machine is up to it get some advice, read this first or buy a book

How Windows 8.1 with Bing is Different from Windows 8.1 Professional

How Windows 8.1 with Bing is Different from Windows 8.1 Professional

 

How Windows 8.1 with Bing is Different from Windows 8.1 ProfessionalMicrosoft announced in May 2014 that it would launch a version of Windows 8.1 with a reduced set of features and capabilities. Clearly they are looking to allows OEM’s to compete with the open source OS’s especially Android.

No doubt they would like to emulate the reasons Android has remained dominant in the recent past especially in tablets:

  1. Lots of hardware buy in from OEM’s.
  2. Access to plenty of Apps.
  3. Having something more attractive price wise than an iPad.

I am sure Microsoft will be happy if this expands their reach especially in areas where they have been hammered in recent years by iOS and Android. Even if it does imply another nail in the coffin of RT. Products are shipping already including our own rugged tablets the xTablet Flex 10 and xTablet Flex 8

Is it much different to the Windows 8.1 that you are already used to?  No.

Key Features of Windows 8.1 with Bing

  • Lower price to compete with open source OS’s such as Android Chrome and Linux.
  • Internet Explorer and Bing search are the default browser and search location. Whilst the manufacturer cannot mess with them as defaults users can swap to others.
  • Users can load apps via the app store or load canned or custom desktop software as normal.
  • Want another browser – up to the user to download and install.
  • No “Side Load”. This refers to loading “app store” specifically “Start Screen apps” via non-store loading.
  • Cannot upgrade to 8.1 Pro or Enterprise.
  • Some commercial devices may be bundled with Microsoft Office or a one year subscription to Office 365.

Why do some Enterprise Mobility Users adopt Windows 8.1 Professional Instead.

  • Company Policy.
  • Security and Management.
  • Bitlocker and EFS for file encryption and protection.
  • Custom applications loading and management.
  • Windows domain.
  • Group policy – manage apps and rights by group.
  • Allow use of Hyper V a way of running Windows 7 apps.
  • Latest version of IE.

Windows 8.1 with Bing is similar to a tactic Microsoft used in the past to get users to adopt Windows Vista and Windows 7. Whilst these OS’s were crippled in some way 8.1 with Bing is a full install – hoorah!
