It’s a well-known fact that every standard smartphone these days can be used as a mobile scanner. But the feature was never really put to good use until pixolus GmbH launched the pixometer app for iOS and Android, which is on show in the Young Tech Enterprises zone during HANNOVER MESSE 2016. This innovation from the Cologne-based image recognition specialist helps numerous sectors including energy and medicine to develop digitization strategies – and there are already market-ready solutions for recording mechanical or LCD displays, such as energy meters or displays showing blood pressure or weight.
pixometer makes electricity, gas or water meter readings simple, reliable and efficient thanks to mobile image recognition and by digitizing the reading and simultaneously taking a high-quality photo as evidence. An end is potentially in sight to the irritating, time-consuming and error-prone manual input of readings. Major suppliers and municipal utility companies have already adopted the software development kit (SDK) for this scanning technology into their reading tools and customer apps. Now pixolus is starting to catch on in numerous other fields, too – from industry and logistics to trade, banking and even medicine.
