Abstract [en]

There are many attempts to bridge paper digital gap, new artifacts and tools are being delivered continuously. Many of these artifacts work with paper and cooperate with other artifacts. Despite the fact that these artifacts are good enough to perform their work, they tend to be dull in exchanging data and cooperating with other artifacts. This causes a problem especially when artifact cooperation is essential. In order to solve this we need to have a standard to present the data used in the artifacts and facilitate communication among artifacts. Paper Digital Classes is a new standard that aims at providing a standard implementation of the artifacts in matters of data exchange and interoperability. PDC has a direct industrial impact, this was noticed by Sparbanksstiftelsen Kronan and they have awarded me a scholarship for the project.

Abstract [sv]

Med dagens teknik är det möjligt att skicka till exempel e-post direkt från ett papper utan att röra vid datorn. Genom att använda en särskild digital penna överförs texten man skriver på papper direkt till datorn. Jag har undersökt olika system och verktyg som berör läsning och överföring från papper till digitala dokument. Jag har utifrån min studie tagit fram en standard, PDC, Paper Digital Classes, som låter olika verktyg interagera som om de vore ett. PDC kan komma att få stor betydelse för framtida dokumenthantering. Tekniken underlättar att skicka e-post från ett pappersdokument, redigera pappersdokument och överhuvudtaget all interaktion mellan fysiska och digitala dokument. PDC kan också komma till god hjälp när det gäller att utveckla nya, användbara produkter.
