There are lots of opportunities throughout the enterprise to increase efficiency and reduce labor costs using a hands-free computing solution: small parts picking, large package handling, sortation, truck loading... any time two hands are required. Until now, that has required the use of a dedicated wearable device and a redesign of the application and the process to utilize the limited user interface. Using the rugged, enterprise-class Dolphin™ 70e mobile computer with purpose-built wearable accessories provides a new approach to enabling hands-free operations. The large display, flexible touchscreen keypads and Microsoft® Windows® Embedded Handheld 6.5 architecture allow existing applications to be deployed hands free – without reengineering!
The lightweight wearable accessories provide increased comfort and improved hygiene over conventional wearables. The rubber watchband-style armbands stretch slightly as the arm moves, and therefore remain tight to prevent sliding down or spinning around the arm. The rubber materials do not absorb perspiration and are easily cleaned between shifts. All components are breakaway for safety and easily swappable for left- or right-hand operation. The system supports corded or Bluetooth®-connected ring scanners and provides a rugged audio interface to Honeywell headsets. All standard Dolphin 70e computer accessories, such as charging cradles and four-bay battery chargers, are available.
Several software enhancements have been incorporated to make use as a wearable device even more intuitive. Pairing the Bluetooth ring scanners is now as easy as scanning a single barcode. APIs are available that allow voice applications to optimize voice recognition performance and the user’s audio experience. An integrated keyboard designer is included that allows creation of pop-up keypads that are appropriate for the operation at hand. The desired keypad can be invoked by the user using hot keys, by a local application using an API or by a Telnet host using special commands to the terminal emulation software. This provides for a context-sensitive keypad: Users see only the keys they need, when they need them.
Features and Benefits
Make the Dolphin 70e mobile computer hands free, without reengineering: Run your existing applications through a wearable solution without any rewriting.
Don’t get stuck with a dedicated device that only serves one purpose. Share the Dolphin 70e mobile computer on different tasks between shifts, or standardize on one general-purpose device across multiple enterprise applications.
The 109.2 mm (4.3 in) large, clear display with capacitive touchscreen provides outstanding readability and plenty of space for data and keypads. Clearly superior to conventional wearable displays.
The use of touchscreen- based keypads and the integrated keyboard designer allow you to deploy just the keys that the user needs, only when needed. Can be controlled by a local application, hot keys or a Telnet host application.
- The watchband-style armband improves comfort and eliminates hygiene concerns. The rubber watchband straps are comfortable, reduce sliding or rotating on the arm, and don’t absorb perspiration. Easily cleaned.
