Digital Pen Streamlines Processes

To reduce the need for paper trails and redundant data entry, and to help streamline business processes, the digital pen works by interpreting free handwriting and converting it into computer-recognizable text.

A tiny camera inside the pen captures 70 images per second. These images are used for capturing the coordinates of the hand strokes against the paper reports. The paper is plain white, but when printed from a laser jet, has a grayish tint, resulting from a tiny dot matrix used for x and y coordinates. As the pen captures the images, it uses the dots to interpret the handwriting and determine on what form and where the pen strokes are occurring. The pen can store up to 200 pages of data before it must be transferred off the pen. Once the pen has captured the information, software provides additional verification and integration of the data to external systems such as LIMS, ERP, MES and others for applications such as quality control, material handling and performance metrics.
