From healthcare to sports or home automation to smart cities, the Internet of Things (IoT) swarm over our lives. Specialists estimate that 50 billion devices may be connected to the internet by 2020. In this connected world, companies have to be prepared to new data-centric opportunities and imagine new business models. Pentalog helps them create and develop mind-blowing user experiences for wearables, connected homes and energy management devices. The race is on! Don’t miss the turn!
Addressing IoT challenges
The IoT boom has been enabled by the association of several technical and business evolutions and innovations: lower power consumption, cheaper and more sophisticated semi-conductors, wifi and 3/4G internet, standardization of communication protocols, etc.
Precision: connected objects need sensors with very high precision measurement systems to collect data with a high level of confidence. This is all the more imperative for health or fitness smart devices.
Security: a huge quantity of information is sent through networks and has to be securely stored in the devices.
Battery life: power is another important element especially for wireless objects. Our engineers help you to choose the best components (microcontrolers, wireless connectivity components or CPU) to reduce power consumption.
Data management / privacy: wearables which collect, store and exchange health data (like watches or connected bracelets) are likely to be stolen for ill-intentioned use and must therefore be designed to avoid adverse data reconciliation which could be made with Big Data tools. For that, new data encryption solutions have to imagined.
Unified standards: middleware plays a crucial role in IoT development. In most cases, our engineers suggest to use OpenSource standards to remain independent.
