Embedded Software Development and Consulting for the Internet of Things
Software Design Solutions provides consulting and embedded software development services. We use our knowledge and expertise to solve problems at every stage of application development. Companies can either hand off projects for us to develop for them, or we can join the existing customer team to provide experienced engineers with little or no ramp time. They can also leverage our decades of embedded software expertise to learn new best practices in agile embedded software development.
The best part? Our experienced staff is full-time and permanent, so most companies can work with the same people on multiple projects.

As you consider moving your product onto the Internet of Things, you cannot ignore the security issues introduced by connecting devices to the internet. But where do you start?
Automation and autonomy are exciting prospects in all sorts of applications, but we do need to be careful about maintaining control when things go wrong. Autonomous cars, drones, and boats are somewhat obvious places where we need to be able to override operations, but your application may warrant a kill switch as well. Be careful to make it sufficiently secure so that nobody can use it against you!
Improvements and cost reductions in radio technology are opening all sorts of opportunities to add connectivity to far-flung operations, such as pipelines and other infrastructure networks. Low-cost, low-power protocols such as narrowband IoT (NB-IoT), coupled with careful power management engineering to maximize battery life, give us exciting new options for connectivity and “smart” systems.
