SMART PRODUCTS


The Internet of Things (IoT) is enabling a new revolution in user experience: “connected” products, vehicles and even buildings, equipped with software, smart electronics & sensors, enable these objects to collect and exchange data. The IoT supports technologies such as smart grids, smart homes, intelligent transportation and smart cities. Experts estimate that the ‘IoT’ will consist of almost 50 billion objects by 2020. In most cases, the physical device is being engineered as an enabling device to offer a service and/or enriched information.
 
Developing smart products require an intelligent symbiosis of hardware, software, data and service design. Achilles Design is best placed to take on the complete development responsibility, from the first product idea, defining the customer journey, physical prototyping and digital interfaces, integrating embedded software and electronics to technical detailing and production preparation. Together with our partners in electronics and software, we can develop your smart device to the market from A to Z.
By adding electronic sensing to the physical product, it becomes aware of its surroundings, the infrastructure & the users. Communication technologies such as Bluetooth or IoT networks such as Lora allow these products to communicate with each other and the users through the cloud. Software collects processes the necessary input of smart devices and converts raw data into useful information for users and providers.

This requires a thorough understanding of the user, its surroundings and the technological possibilities.
