InnoNOWTM is an expert system for connected, smart products enabled by a menu of NXP Semiconductors sensors. A key challenge in realizing connected, smart products-comprising a physical device, an app and a cloud backend - is having the requisite multidisciplinary knowledge and integration knowhow. With InnoNOW, we have made it straightforward.
Let's use connected, smart juggling balls as an intended product example. These balls add a light show feature, as well as enable quantifying a jugglers' performance, which is then ranked within a social network of jugglers. Hypothetical features of the device (i.e., the smart ball), app and backend are noted on the graphic, as well as the requisite wireless connectivity.
You can leverage our InnoNOW platform by selecting from a menu of NXP sensors, obviating the need to identify, qualify and coordinate the requisite knowledge sources for starting from scratch to develop the device, app and cloud backend. The related project management requires multidisciplinary domain expertise and technology integration. There is also the follow-on work of updates and maintenance; technology advances fast and user expectations move with it. While you can do all this, it is distracting, takes longer and costs more!
Instead, use our InnoNOW platform and NXP sensors to drive your ideas faster, further. We can implement your application-specific requirements by customizing NXP's hardware and our software reference designs. We can also handle user experience engineering and industrial design as part of this customization, as well as facilitate the path to manufacturing of the device.
InnoNOW is built with mobility in mind, using state-of-the-art technologies in sensing, communication, computing and social networking. Its architecture is based on cloud computing and Software as a Service (SaaS). It is also fully HIPAA compliant. An intelligence engine handles decision support. A logistics engine handles operational coordination. An engagement engine generates timely reminders, alerts and notifications — and drives interactions - custom to the application. A database aggregates all captured data. A dashboard provides tools for data analysis and visualization. The libraries are repositories of hardware product data sheets.
