IoT and Embedded Systems Development Services

That’s what we do. What do you need?

Our Services

Need an experienced team or developer to focus on a specific aspect of your project? We can do that – check out Your Own Team. Need help figuring out the best way to approach and carry out your project? Check out Partners in Innovation. Want to make sure your IoT or embedded system is secure? IoT Security explains how we can do that for you.

Your Own Team

 

Software and hardware specialists, your own team, familiar with your product. Ready to jump in at the beginning of the project, then as needed as the project continues.

Partners in Innovation

 

We are constantly involved in other projects, and can bring new technologies and experience gained in other industries and to whatever you’re developing. We can help you build out a proof of concept cost-effectively, before you bet the farm. Our IoT and embedded systems domain experts work with your domain experts. Perfect.

IoT Security

 

As IoT devices proliferate, and are made a part of our everyday lives, security is more important than ever. We build hardware and software security into every development project.

Ed on device engineering

Ed Kuzemchak, chief technology officer and founder of Software Design Solutions, sat down recently with Frank Zinghini, CEO of SDS, to talk about the challenges they’ve overcome and the lessons they’ve learned while working with clients to develop IoT and embedded system solutions. Have you ever heard of a “pre-mortem”? Ed explains, and reveals some other interesting decisions and tradeoffs involved in IoT and embedded solution projects.

Check out our Portfolio

Where we describe the types of situations our clients have found themselves in and how we helped them solve the problem.

Industrial IoT

Monitoring and controlling industrial or commercial equipment or tools. Dealing with rugged environments. Challenges we readily engage in.

Healthcare

Life-critical devices combined with ironclad security, privacy, and regulatory compliance. A delicate balance where deep experience helps.

Transportation

Adding sensors to moving parts, measuring wear or usage levels, leading to more aggressive and less costly maintenance. Right up our alley.

Oil and Gas

A highly regulated industry with a complex supply channel is a stellar opportunity for IoT and embedded systems. New tech, streamlined compliance, lower costs.

Aerospace

IoT in space (going to the moon!) and in the field (an automated testing system to help field techs to repair fighters). Possibilities are infinite.

Construction Equipment

Tough workers doing tough work. Embedding intelligence into rugged tools extend useful tool life and provide usage data. A major advance.

Consumer Goods/Retail

Intelligence embedded in shelving and products is revolutionizing retail inventory management. Digital transformation meets brick-and-mortar.

Consumer Safety

A wearable patch measures skin response, heart rate, and geo location. A machine learning cellphone app analyzes. Dangerous state? Automatic call for help.

Types of Solutions

Because IoT and embedded systems are digitizing the world—and the systems and edge devices must meet a variety of requirements. Whatever you’re wrestling with, we’ve probably been there, done that.

Low Power; long battery life

Quite often, a device is out in the middle of nowhere, and replacing batteries frequently is out of the question. Or it’s just inconvenient, period. We can help you design the right battery solution.

Rugged Environments

It can be tough out there! Too hot, cold, wet, shaky, or impactful. The sensors that collect data can have a rough life. Your devices need to be able to take it. We’ve done a lot of work in this area.

High-Security

Security is becoming more serious by the day. Someone got into a corporate network recently via a fish tank! We build in security from the start of the dev process.

Automated Testing and Guided Repair

IoT and embedded systems are, by their very nature, often far removed from “central headquarters,” where the most experienced techs tend to be. We build the systems that help those in-the-field techs do great work.

Highly Regulated Domains

Healthcare, transportation, aerospace, oil and gas . . . just a few of the highly regulated industries we’ve developed successful IoT and embedded systems for. We have a lot of experience building compliant systems.

Wireless

Wireless tech has revolutionized IoT systems, especially when there are sensors involved, which can be more remote, consume less power, and reduce costs.  It’s critical to select the right tech. We can help.

Low-latency, high performance control systems

IoT applications provide a lot of data. What should be measured? Where should it be stored and analyzed? Sometimes the answers to these questions involve the “edge” and the “fog”—areas we are quite familiar with.

The Best Way to Get Started in IoT

You don’t have to write a big check to get started in IoT. You need to start small, with an appropriate, goal-meeting proof-of-concept. Get some early wins, figure out what is working and what is not. You also need to be thinking about what you’re really trying to accomplish. IoT is about getting more data out of physical objects, and using that data to improve some area of your business or product. Here’s how we work to help you get there.
