We live in a world where data can now be captured wherever it’s generated, and leveraged instantly using sensors in machines and wearables. The Internet-of-Things (IoT) depends on these wireless and wired devices that talk to each other for medical devices for patient monitoring, robotic manufacturing, smart cars and many other industries and applications. Odic has significant experience designing and creating these devices—even years before they were the latest hot technology.
Odic has significant experience in various technologies that fall under the IoT and wearable umbrellas:
- Extremely low power devices, including hardware and firmware designed to function in very power-limited applications.
- The smallest packaging requirements, using passive and active components that are almost too small to see without a microscope.
- Extensive use of a variety of sensors, including movement, light, sound, video, and location.
- Experience with a of all kinds of output devices, including graphical displays, and haptic feedback.
- Devices that communicate with each other in various ways. This can be over wireless protocols, or over AC (powerline), legacy wired connections, or the Internet.
- Collecting data, pushing it to the cloud, and making decisions based on it.
- Wireless protocols including Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE or BT Smart), or proprietary protocols at various frequencies to solve specific problems.
- Cellular modems (M2M) to get data to the Internet.
- Secure protocols to get information from a sensor to the Internet safely.
