Hardware and software solutions for the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things / IoT is one of the most promising market niches in electronics. Its profit potential is expected to grow in the nearest five to ten years. We have experience, extensive knowledge of technologies and ready-made solutions for successfully implementing projects within this popular trend.
Examples of our projects for IoT:
|Lapka, a set of sensors for iPhone
There are nitrate meter, radiometer, electromagnetic field and moisture measuring devices. We have developed the enclosure design, manufactured the pilot batch and prepared for mass production.
|A mobile glucometer for iOS and Android smartphones
A mobile gauge of glucose concentration in the blood that works paired with mobile phones under iOS or Android control. We have created a new product for a company-developer and manufacturer of glucometers.
DO-RA portable dosimeter-radiometer
Network device with bluetooth sensors
Mobile gadgets used in the Internet of things networks give engineering and programming thought a totally new dimension which covers almost the entire realm of human existence: home electric appliances, automotive multimedia devices, as well as lighting and power supply systems.
What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?
We can define IoT as a network of devices connected to the Internet, which interoperate with each other in order to perform the following tasks:
- Exclude human involvement in regular operations by using self-standing intelligent systems.
- Measure and analyze the parameters of their own state, the environment or other devices, as well as use and transmit this information to a human user.
IoT Promwad Mobile = Smartphone + Electronics + Cloud
A smartphone is central to our concept of the Internet of Things because it receives a stream of data from stationary and mobile devices and serves as a remote control for devices from the Internet of things system.
How does it work?
A mobile gadget or a stationary device collects data through embedded sensors and sends them to a smart phone that displays the information in a way that is convenient for the user. All analytics are synchronized with the cloud.
IoT Promwad Mobile is a platform that helps utilize any interaction pattern, while we choose the optimal pattern for each project:
- Electronic device → smartphone → cloud service
- Electronic device → cloud service → smartphone
- Electronic device → smartphone
- Electronic device → cloud service
Advantages of integrating the Internet of things with smartphones
- Availability: remote control of the Internet of Things anywhere anytime
- Familiar interface: the user will not have to learn to operate a new device because all functions are available via smartphone
- Rich functionality: modern smartphones are able to handle large streams of data from the Internet of Things, and send control commands over the network
- Easy sharing of information: mobile application integrate with social networks and cloud services
- Excellent data visualization: all information from the user’s personal Internet of Things is graphically presented in one application
Examples of use of IoT Promwad Mobile
1. Internet of things for Health 2.0
Mobile health care gadgets is one of the most popular areas in the development of wearable electronics. Examples of devices within the health 2.0 trend include blood glucose concentration meters, dosimeters, moisture meters, radiometers, food nitrate meters and adapters for different medical equipment (heart rhythm meters).
Here is a more detailed description of possible developments in the field of mobile gadgets:
2. Smartphone as a remote control for the Internet of things
Mobile phones running iOS and Android can be used as a remote control for TVs, home theaters, as well as navigation and multimedia electronics. Here is an example of the most popular solutions:
3. Smart home
Today smart home solutions are becoming more available for a wide range of implementations: design engineers now have access to scalable technologies, while potential users are familiar with the capabilities of smart homes and are ready to buy electronics in the field.
Based on the customer’s or the target user’s needs, a variety of smart home modifications can be developed:
The mobile application is synchronized with the control center which controls all smart systems and devices in your home. The smartphone turns into a remote control for managing a smart home and issues all kinds of commands to electronic appliances, both inside the house and remotely.
