Development of a touchscreen based slate device with Java application
MetadataShow full item record
Touch panel technologies are a key theme in current digital devices, including smartphones, slate devices like the iPad and Android tablets, the screens on the backs of digital cameras, and Windows 8 devices. The term touch panel encompasses various technologies for sensing the touch of a finger or stylus. This project aims to show the work involved to create a slate/tablet with a basic touch panel sensing method which takes an input from a user, via a stylus. The data (from the etchings of the stylus) is then to be fed to other smart devices using a wireless adapter, primarily to other smart devices instantaneously. The main objective of this thesis work is to aid teacher and student interaction in the classroom. The device will provide students the drawings and lectures written on said slate instantly for a copy, and to modify said copy in any way they choose to, or receive a copy at a later time via the internet. It can also be used as a commercial communication method in long distance business conferencing.
