We will start by building a mutual understanding of your business / project and talk over some options before doing research.
At the end of this an initial proposal will be made.
Consultation is free!
We will carry out detailed research into the technologies which could be used, identify necessary subsystems and design all parts of the project and how they interact both with each other and existing systems.
A system design document will then be created.
We will endeaver to prove the concept and de-risk the system we have proposed with early stages of software design and hardware integration. The foundation for the rest of the development project is now in place.
Custom software, PCB design, creation and testing, data analysis and algorithm development, 3D design/ Printing, all as necessary depending on the scope of the project.
This is the interesting bit. Your idea comes to life, all our systems, hardware, software, etc come together and a working prototype is the result.
The process usually requires some in-project changes at this stage which will mean going over those last two steps again.
Now we hand over all technical know-how, data and designs to you. We can also assist on the technical side of handover, communicating with your technical departments, manufacturer or other 3rd party as required.
When you think of say, an audio signal or waveform, you think of this, right?
Figure 1: Audio waveform in the time domain.
Figure 1 depicts and audio signal in the time domain; essentially a visualisation of the variation of the signal’s amplitude (plotted on the y-axis) over time (plotted on the x-axis). So, by observing the signal in this way, how much information can actually be extracted?
If you haven't read previous blog posts about this, we're taking 7 UTC Reading Students through the entire process of fully developing a customer idea and creating a working prototype IoT product to meet all the customer requirements in 4 weeks. Monday 6 August saw the beginning of this brilliant project.
6 Students from UTC Reading (one is on holiday but will join us from next week), all arrived promptly at Innovation Catalyst's amazing facility at the Thames Valley Science Park, looking eager, suited and booted and wanting to know what would be in store for them...
Our summer project with a team of students from UTC Reading is designed to give them experience of creating an IoT product prototype from a customer's idea. The purpose is for them to experience a highly structured and organised approach with technical discipline which is hard to get any other way.
But what's the product? What are they going to make?
We recently announced our summer development project with UTC Reading (didn't see that? It's here) Well, there's more...
The UTC Reading students have decided they would like to run a hackathon and the UTC is going to support it. We were asked to be involved and we were happy to help, but what could we do for them?
