There are many other applications of mobile computing in the public sector. The following sample applications are based on pen computers:

Colorado Department of Energy is using Apple Newton MessagePads fitted with bar code readers and GPS receivers to locate, test and classify hazardous (radioactive waste) material. Pen computers can be used even with anti-radiation gloves.

Two New Jersey companies (CDP, Inc. and Computers at Work) have developed an application for parking control officers. The system is based on Norand PEN*KEY 6100 hand held ruggedized pen computers. Major advantages include improved timeliness and accuracy of ticket writing.

The City of Richmond Hill in Ontario has automated time reporting for its employees. The city’s crew supervisors use Fujitsu’s pen-based PoquetPads and custom forms created with the PenRight development environment.

Booz-Allen is field testing an interesting solution for US Army Infantry Patrol soldiers. Currently, soldiers must fill out a coded situation report on paper. This has been replaced by an electronic form on Newton MessagePad 120s.
