Details

Tittle:
100% customized electronics and a suite of SaaS Software for the development of industrial IoT applications.
Summary:
An Italian SME developed an integrated platform (customized or standard electronic components and suite of SaaS software) to facilitate and boost the development of industrial IoT applications.
The company provides all round service that aims at the digitalization of products/processes and is seeking companies of any size willing to develop tailor-made IoT applications for commercial agreement with technical assistance or technical cooperation agreement.
Description:
The company is an innovative SME: an Italian dynamic software factory and electronic engineering studio with a solid reputation in product development and high-quality consulting services supply backed by technical excellence. The company develops and manufactures hardware devices and software and firmware solutions for a wide range of industries including HVAC/R, healthcare, M2M communication and supervision/monitoring of industrial and commercial facilities.

The company provides fully customized solutions according to the clients´ needs and is willing both to tailor the product to the single company demands and to enter new industrial sectors as the platform perfectly fits any industry requirement.

The partner sought is typically an OEM, a System Integrator, an automation systems´ manufacturer or any company willing to develop tailor-made IoT applications and to protect the company intellectual propriety, speeding up the time to market.

The main focus is the process of digitalization of the factory and of the product, the possibility to replicate the assets on the cloud, and to make the most out of the virtualization of the physical assets: monitoring, predictive modelling, predictive maintenance, smart alerting, service management are just some of the possibilities provided by the product which aims at optimizing the entire service value chain and to give the adopters a pivotal competitive advantage on their competitors.

The product has already several applications in different fields such as Agriculture, Energy, Manufacturing, Automotive, Smart Cities ,Healthcare and it is made up of:

-Hardware: custom or standard industrial-grade electronic boards that can be used by the customer for prototyping and production.
-Runtime: running on the company´s electronic boards, it is a firmware suitable for applications requiring connectivity.
-IDE: The integrated development environment is accessible by any browser and it does not require any installation so that any compatibility and updating issue is avoided.
It is used to easily write the process logics and to visually design the human-machine interface which is connected with the logic in order to automatically replicate the state of the process in the cloud. The IDE allows the client company to internally create its own industrial IoT applications and to protect its own intellectual propriety. OTA (On The Air) and FOTA (Firmware On The Air) updates are available.
-SaaS tools: Business Analytics and Predictive Maintenance, Smart Alerting, Service Management.
-The Business Analytics and Predictive Maintenance tool allows the all-round management of the data gathered from the assets, no matter where they are located.
-The Smart Alerting tool is able to identify the specific technical intervention required by interpreting the warning messages received and to contact the required technicians´ team via email, SMS or phone call.
-The Service Management tool allows the technicians to carry out structured and organized service tasks in order to reduce the client downtime allowing the company to minimize the costs and to exceed the customer expectations.

The product is already on the market, with different applications.
Recent examples:
1)Monitoring and predictive maintenance on biogas plants - Renewable Energy
2)Bike-sharing lock controller automation - Smart City
3)Custom IoT applications for round balers - Agriculture
4)Custom IoT applications for agricultural seeding and spraying - Precision Farming
5)Simplified development of automation in laboratory analysis - Medical industry
Quantitative data example:
25% reduction of ordinary maintenance work (cyclic/preventive check and replacement)
75% reduction of extraordinary maintenance work (unexpected damages or machines downtime)

The company is seeking for commercial agreements with technical assistance and for technical cooperation agreements.
Advantages and Innovations:
-Effortless virtualization of the physical assets in the cloud, which means that a virtual copy of the machine will be at the customer´s disposal in the cloud.
-Integration of the entire machine´s lifecycle in one single harmonized environment.
At this stage, no other company provides the entire integrated system. The platform fulfils the entire machine´s lifecycle: the development, the production and the provisioning of the electronic products and of all the services needed to manage and optimize the service value chain (monitoring, analyzing, predicting, alerting...). Thanks to the platform, the client company will have one sole supplier and will no longer need to turn to several different providers.
-An extremely simplified user experience allows the company to achieve the same results that it would have achieved by assigning highly qualified professionals (i.e. firmware experts) to specific business areas (electronic/programming/ICT) even if it does not have in the staff people with the same expertise.
-By managing in-house any change arising at any time, the company doesn´t have to wait for any firmware expert or external consultant and drastically speeds up the time-to-market, achieving a pivotal competitive advantage.
- The client company will be able to create value from its own assets: targeted maintenance, increased productivity, cost reduction are just some of the possible advantages.
