We can’t imagine life without mobile end devices such as smartphones and tablet computers.
A state-of-the-art smartphone is incredibly useful and more than just a communication device. It includes a multi camera system including lighting, acceleration sensors, acoustic sensors, GPS and a small performance computer with an internet connection. This multitude of features enables many options for either performing optical measurement and test procedures on a smartphone, or for combining both.
While strict security measures prevent smartphones from being widely used on the production line, we should not forget the immense potential of these little allrounders. This is why Fraunhofer IPM develops applications for mobile end devices on request.
