Document imaging for mobiles.
Scientists at Xerox Research Centre Europe (XRCE) have developed
document imaging technology for mobile phones that will evolve them into
portable document scanners and can, ultimately, turn mobile phones into
document service devices. The software has been built upon innovations
in improving document imaging with cameras. Potential business
applications of the technology are numerous, but in summary it could
revolutionise the roles of employees working remotely in any vertical
sector by enabling individuals to capture information and immediately
transmit it e.g. from trade events, presentations, forums, client
meetings, screens, whiteboards and other situations.
