Mobile Application Development

The Mobile Application market has grown continuously in the last several years. Mobile Applications have been used by many businesses as a way to empower their workforce and provide access to data, information, and functionalities of their systems anywhere at any time. 

At PAI we offer the capability to develop customized mobile applications, whether it is a mobile extension of a current system that will utilize existing web services or the development of a new application. We develop apps for many common mobile platforms, such as Android, iPhone, and Windows Mobile.

Example Projects

Virtual White-Lining

Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration

Government agencies are constantly being challenged to insure public safety and to minimize impacts of disruption to public utilities due to unplanned service outages.  A significant portion of public safety concerns and unplanned outages are related to excavation work in the vicinity of buried utilities.  Damage to underground facilities can cost millions of dollars and can have dire consequences to public safety.  Over a 10 year period ending in 2006, nearly 700 incidents of pipeline damage during excavation resulted in more than $250 million in property damage.  Inaccurate and erroneous excavation site descriptions on request tickets to One-call centers are a contributor to the problem.  

The purpose of this study was to research, evaluate, and implement Electronic White-Lining technology to enhance communication among excavators, One-Call Centers, underground facility operators and facility locators in New Jersey.  The primary focus of the project was to incorporate and convey GPS coordinates in excavation locate requests, enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of One-call damage prevention process.

PAI developed a mobile application for Android based devices to enable excavator to create and submit location request tickets to the One-Call Centers from a handheld device/smart phone by using a GPS enabled map.
