How does your device get into the Internet of Things easily? The Solcept IoT Platform
Modern devices are supposed to be connected to the IoT (Internet of Things), to the cloud. On the one hand to centrally query sensor data and operating states allowing for e.g. remote service, planning of maintenance and planned refilling of consumables. On the other hand, the devices should also be configured, controlled and maintained locally with a smartphone or tablet.
Many of these devices contain a controller which is deeply embedded, i.e. consists of printed circuit boards and not of off-the-shelf control components. The effort to implement all IoT-functions and especially the IoT-interfaces can be considerable. This is especially true since these controls are usually very resource-limited (cost, energy consumption/cooling, space, processing power...).
Since the interfaces and the basic functions are the same for almost all applications and customers, we have developed a platform that greatly shortens the development of IoT functionality. It is not intended to be a "one size fits all" solution, but it is so flexible that it can be adapted with little effort for many "deeply embedded" IoT and M2M (Machine-To-Machine communication) tasks.
We have developed this platform in the context of a concrete customer project with specific sensors, actuators and functions. However, the IoT platform capabilities in hardware and software are encapsulated in such a way that they can easily be transferred to other projects, be it completely or only a part of the functions.
