Mobile platform expanded with new touch-based camera app

Oct. 10, 2013

Motion Computing has expanded its mobile technology platform to include a touch-based camera application among other advances.

The platform now includes image sharing & documentation software, an asset and inventory management UHF RFID reader, workflow-enabling accessories and the latest generation of Motion F5 and C5-series Rugged Tablets.

“With this launch, Motion continues to fulfill the mission we set forth 12 years ago,” said Peter Poulin, vice president, marketing. “Provide the mobile workforce tools to complete their work easier, faster and more accurately.   As we strive to deliver innovative technology, we never lose sight of our customers – the mobile workers.  Their needs remain at the forefront of all our offerings.”

Motion’s new software, Snapworks by Motion is an intuitive, touch-based camera application that provides mobile workers a way to capture, annotate and share images. The new EasyConnect RFID long range reader transforms Motion Rugged Tablets into long-range UHF RFID tag readers for obtaining and processing critical asset data from a distance - ideal for an oil rig, rail transportation or warehouse environment., the company said.

And, the just released multi-bay battery charger accessory charges up to 5 batteries at the same time. 

In addition to the software, RFID reader and charger, Motion has released the latest generations of the F5 and C5-series Rugged Tablets.  The Motion F5te and C5te run Microsoft Windows and include the convenience of touch navigation, accuracy of pen input, durability of Corning Gorilla Glass and visibility of View Anywhere Display Durability to provide functionality without the extra weight and price associated with traditional fully-rugged devices. 

Motion offers options for enhanced mobility including tailored docking, mounting and charging solutions.  Powerful Intel Core i3 or i5 & i7 vPro options with Intel Hyper-Threading technology provide higher performance levels.
