25 May 2018

Honeywell has launched its hardware and software ‘Mobility Edge’ platform into the Australia and New Zealand market.

Introduced at a series of key partner events held across Auckland, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane the new offering includes common hardware architecture and a suite of tools designed to support future mobility solutions.

These include rugged handheld computers, wearable devices, voice-directed technology, tablets and vehicle-mounted computers.

Honeywell ASEAN and A/NZ vice president of safety and productivity solutions Raj Singh, “After listening to our industry partners, Honeywell has rethought the approach to solving the constraints associated with mobile deployments.

“The Mobility Edge Platform has been designed to support the next generation of mobile computers to be used by distribution centres, transportation and logistics providers, hospitals, and retailers to increase worker productivity and capture critical data.”

The platform is designed for Google’s Android operating system and offers a long product lifecycle by supporting current and future Android versions.

The Mobility Edge platform is designed to provide a level of consistency across all of Honeywell’s next-gen devices.

The company says this design makes it easier for customers to upgrade current models, manage device refreshes and quickly deploy software applications.

Honeywell president of the productivity products business says, “Because we built the Mobility Edge Platform with an Android-first mindset, businesses will have the confidence that our devices will support future versions of the operating system without making new hardware investments.

“Leveraging a single, unified platform will make adding new devices and testing and deploying business-critical mobile hardware and software easier and faster.”

The Mobility Edge Platform features support for four generations of Android and a common architecture approach, allowing customers to develop, test and certify an application just once for deploying to devices.

Mobility Edge also deploys a set of productivity-optimising tools to increase data capture speed and improve the way workers communicate securely, along with a battery runtime maximizer to allow customers to extend daily usage of the device by adjusting performance characteristics according to their specific needs.
