Creating Technology for the Future

Company overview

Sensor IT is a technology provider in the Internet of Things (IoT) space who develops prototypes and technologies applicable to a number of verticals, such as Smart Cities, Smart Industry, Smart Agriculture and Smart Transport/Mobility, as the key sectors we focus on. Sensor IT covers the whole range of products that typically an IoT System comprises, as depicted by the figure below.

What We Do

Sensor IT specialises in the production of endpoints, sensor detection and data generation devices targeting connected (Internet of Things – IoT) systems. We use low-cost, industrial Single Board Computers (SBC) and Systems on a Chip (SoC) components, such as those based on Atmel® and ARM® processors (which powers the ubiquitous Raspberry PI) that enable rapid prototyping and significantly lower the final production cost without impacting the quality of the final product. The range of products we use sensors and components from a wide range of suppliers, enabling us to use those that are more suited to the job at hand. Essentially, we are technology agnostic.​

Software Development

Following best practices around portability and scalability, at Sensor IT we develop IoT Firmware and Software code based on a strict approach that goes through owning the complete IPR of everything we create. We do not embed Open Source or GPL licenced products in our libraries.

Product Development

Sensor IT’s product development processes follow an user-centric approach upon which prototypes are custom designed to meet specific requirements, rather than expecting customers to evaluate whether our products are suitable for their needs.

Consultancy

Based on our experience designing and developing IoT products, we are able to provide unbiased and highly professional advise on how to best approach IoT concept designs and complete products, from the most basic principles through to a complete, full-fledged system.

Project Direction

Our experience managing complex technological programmes can be projected into your own IoT initiatives. We can cover all three aspects that typically every project involves: technical, commercial and legal.

Engineering Support

Need to get your concept off the ground? We can help you transform those basic concepts and ideas into realistic engineering principles that will allow your company to move forward and reach the next steps in your path to success.

Prototype Design

At Sensor IT, we design IoT prototypes from the ground up, starting with the schematic, following it with the PCB design and finishing with the product sourcing and manufacturing. Small prototype batches are typically assembled in our lab, with large batches being outsourced.

How we do it …

To design a sensor-based system,

We work collaboratively with out clients to establish what is required in terms of the data that needs to be collected, how to encode such data, and how to transmit it to the end-system that is to deal with the data. At high level, there are several aspects of the design that need to be established before the finer details are to be dealt with.

We follow a sequential three-layered design approach to the provision of IoT services.

ENDPOINT

GATEWAY

USER INTERFACE

Endpoints within IoT are the point in the system which data is initially collected. This can range from measuring the temperature or light intensity within a certain room all the way to water purity within a large array of reservoirs.

The gateway acts as a carrier of information received from either a single or various endpoint nodes. This step is essential in ensuring the data is properly processed and sent securely to a cloud server for the next stage.

The user interface takes the information gathered by the endpoints, sent via the gateway and processes it in a way that makes it easy to digest. This often involves marking trends or notifying the user if the data received is within pre-set boundaries or limits.
