Receive in-field, enterprise user feedback
Stand-alone wireless connectivity, which doesn’t rely on tethering via Bluetooth to a smartphone. (Either Wi-Fi or Cellular depending on environment)
An interface to communicate medium-fidelity information (Short text messages and low resolution images)
A method for the user to respond, that can be operated in all industrial environments. (Robust tactile buttons or rotary switches that can be operated even with greasy leather gloves)
Means to attract the user’s attention in loud industrial environments. (A combination of vibrators, speakers and light is the best we have found to date)
The battery-life of the device must survive at least an entire work-shift.
The device’s operating system must be flexible and completely open to customization. (Currently, we work specifically with Android devices)
The device must be sufficiently durable and water proof. (IP67 Preferred)
A standard suite of sensors that includes gyroscope, magnetometer, accelerometer, GPS, ambient light, and a microphone is preferred.
