Image processing offers new chances. It is a key technology of the 21st Century. Image processing is an enabler for the development of modern instruments with increased efficiency for measurement, automation and quality control in industry, biology and medicine. Total new is the situation that smartphones and smart pads (SPs) accomplish central functions in image acquisition and image processing. The paper illustrates three radical innovations: Smartphones and smartpads (SPs) are distributed and used in huge numbers, worldwide. SPs are mobile, convenient, reliable and affordable. SPs are the replacers of desktops, laptops and industrial PCs. Smartphones and smartpads (SPs) will be combined with additional components (hardware apps and software apps) to innovate measurement, automation and quality control. The innovative smart instrumentation is robust, autonomous, mobile and web-enabled (cloudy) as well as convenient, reliable and affordable. The paper is illustrating selected examples for smart instrumentations in industry, biology and medicine which are already available on market. Aim of the paper is an encouragement for design, manufacturing and use of robust, mobile and standardized SPs and Apps to enhance the green efficiency in industry, biology and medicine. © 2012 by Walter de Gruyter Berlin Boston.
