Our clients often ask us for recommendations as to what hardware we use as we employ TPAS™ for the collection and cataloging of facade conditions data. We recently upgraded our tablet PCs to the Motion J3500 model. Its screen is optimized for outdoor use and its two batteries can be “hot swapped” to maximize productivity in the field. Our new cameras are Panasonic DMC-TS20s. As with the Motion tablet, the camera is built with durability and ruggedness in mind. As we continue to develop the software side of TPAS™ to make condition surveys and field reporting more efficient, the new hardware will likewise add to our field productivity.
