Transforming ideas into products

We develop connected, smart products enabled by integration of sensor, connectivity and computing technologies. These feature-rich products comprise a physical device, an app and a cloud backend. They collect data from their environment, which they process locally and transmit to the backend for storage, analysis and action. User interaction is with the physical device and the app—running on the user's smart phone. 
 
A central and growing challenge in realizing these products is having the requisite multidisciplinary knowledge and the knowhow of integrating them, which we provide on a contract basis. Let's use smart, connected balls as an example to elucidate the foregoing. These balls add a light show feature, as well as enable quantifying the jugglers' performance, which is then ranked in a social network of jugglers. Hypothetical features of the device (i.e., the ball), app and backend are noted, as well as the requisite wireless connectivity.
 
 
Why start from scratch? You will have to identify, qualify and coordinate the requisite knowledge sources, who likely have not worked together in the past. Coordination is not only project management, but also integrating technology and knowledge interfaces successfully. There is the follow-on work of updates and maintenance, because technology advances fast and user expectations move with it. While you can do all this, it is distracting, takes longer and costs more! 
 
Leverage our smart, connected product platform to drive your ideas further, faster. Your application has its own specific requirements, which we will implement by customizing our hardware and software reference designs. Patentable IP opportunities are usually in the application-specific features of the device, rather than the app and backend analytics—even though their custom features may be novel. We will handle user experience engineering and industrial design as part of the customization. We will also facilitate the path to manufacturing of the device.
