Development of Hardware and Edge Computing
In your IoT business case you need to collect data from machines, products, and/or factories to gain further insight in the value chain of your company. We are experts in development of hardware, embedded software, edge computing, and mechanics for your IoT sensors, gateways, and other devices to collect the desired data and transmit it to the Cloud.
With more than 30 years of experience in electronics production of IoT devices from ideas to final products, we can offer you a fully managed device production. Your IoT devices will be produced in co-operation with strategically selected EMS partners (Electronic Manufacturing Services).
For your IoT solution we look at data volume, range, environment, and other important factors, before we choose the best Connectivity solution with wired communication or wireless communication via SIM cards or communication protocols such as LoRa, Bluetooth Low Energy BLE, and Thread. If your company needs to collect large data volumes from many IoT devices, a gateway is often the right technology solution to collect and transmit all your data to the Cloud.
Data from IoT devices is collected in the Cloud to provide insight and the possibility of different usage scenarios. Security is an essential element, including the guarantee that only approved devices can deliver data to your system via a secure connection. At the same time, it is important to consider whether a private Cloud solution should be used instead of a public Cloud solution, for instance because of sensitive data.
Data Storage and Processing
Once your data has been received in the Cloud, it is stored and prepared so that you can subsequently use it for various purposes. This includes transformations, normalization, calculations, and aggregation. The result is that your data, delivered via a secure connection, is structured and stored so that it is ready for use in your solution.
The purpose of collecting and structuring IoT data is to create added value for you, your company, and/or your customers. This can be for example:
- Insight via informative dashboards and data analysis in a Business Intelligence solution
- Abnormality detection using Machine Learning
- Mobile/tablet application for operational use in everyday life
- Integration with the company’s backend system such as an ERP system
The possibilities are many, and the most important task for your IoT business case is to find exactly the usage scenarios creating value for you and your users and in this way strengthening the success of your IoT solution.
