Mobile Computing Data Capture devices compute and transmit data through wireless networks. Such devices are classified into two kinds: Rugged Handheld devices and Vehicle-Mounted devices. Handheld devices are small and can read orders. An example of such a device is Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs). Vehicle-Mounted Computing devices or computers are designed to work with heavy machinery like forklifts, cranes, and other material handling vehicles. These are portable computers that are installed in automobiles, machines, etc. With technological developments in the field of Mobile Computing Data Capture device, new devices with increased processing power and battery life are being introduced. Such developments give the users more computing ability in places other than offices or homes. Moreover, the Mobile Computing Data Capture device manufacturing companies are looking forward to integrate advanced features into their products, so as to cater to the needs of consumers and expand their market. Manufacturing companies are integrating technologies like navigation systems, cameras, and mobile calling facilities. Further, GPS (Global Positioning System) is integrated in such devices, which help in locating the shortest route to an end destination. In addition, such devices are being equipped with Barcode and RFID tag readers, which are able to read the tags on product labels. Also, these can display product information like expiry date, price, and product ratings through the Internet. However, these devices have challenges in the market. For instance, Mobile Computing Data Capture devices with keypads have the tendency to get stiff with prolonged use, and are required to be pressed more than once for a single function. Further, keys in these devices are miniscule, which is a major irritant for users while moving or driving a vehicle. However, the touch screen technology is being adopted into PDAs and Vehicle Mounted computers. As touch screen devices have a use

1. Introduction


Mobile Computing Data Capture devices compute and transmit data through wireless
networks. Such devices are classified into two kinds: Rugged Handheld devices and Vehicle-
Mounted devices.


Rugged Handheld devices are small and can read orders. Examples of such a device is
Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs). Following are the major types of Rugged Handheld
Mobile Computing devices:

} Handhelds/PDAs: Such devices can function as a computer, telephone, fax and has
networking features like Internet and Bluetooth connectivity. The data is entered into a PDA
through touchscreens or keypad and stored in memory cards. Further, PDAs can be
synchronized easily with host computers or other PDAs to carry out tasks such as accessing
and updating data.

} Wearable Computers: Such computing devices can be worn on a human body. Further,
they constantly interact with the user without requiring any interference from them. Hence,
the user can work separately while the computer completes its task. For example; wrist-
worn PCs and full armor computers used by the military.

Vehicle Mounted Computing devices or computers are designed to work with heavy
machinery like forklifts, cranes, and other material handling vehicles. These are portable
computers that are installed in automobiles, machines, etc.

With technological developments in the field of Mobile Computing Data Capture device, new
devices with increased processing power and battery life are being introduced. Such
developments give the users more computing ability in places other than offices or homes.
Moreover, the Mobile Computing Data Capture Device manufacturing companies are looking
forward to integrate advanced features into their products so as to cater to the
