Development of Engineering Mobile Apps
The DSTAR e-Handbook was released in 2002 as a series of tables and formulae compiled to aid field engineers in performing necessary engineering calculations. In addition to its static content, the handbook contains links to standalone Portable Document Format (PDF) documents that contain forms that can perform calculations directly. The latest enhanced and expanded edition (Edition 5) of the handbook was released on December 2012.
As mobile technology has become ubiquitous over the decade since the initial release, opportunities now exist to use mobile devices as an updated e-Handbook. The goal of this project is migration of several popular e-Handbook calculators from Adobe Reader PDF forms to mobile apps.
