In the IoT world, the same device cannot solve the problems of different verticals, because each one has its own specifications. Therefore, when developing a IoT tracker for example, the fit for at specific vertical, needs to be done closely with the managers, users and employees who have that knowledge.
In Stockare, we have done that, working together with our clients and obtaining their valuable feedback. At the beginning, a first prototype was developed as a proof of concept to track industrial non-powered assets, such as, maintenance equipment, returnable logistic packaging, containers, pallets … The project ran smoothly and the solution was working fine, but of course, there were some improvements to be done.
One of those improvement was battery duration. We doubled it up to 16 years with 2 messages per day. The enclosure was reinforced as well as the electronic design.
It was ready for certification… … and now, … … the Industrial Coolfox is Sigfox Ready Certified!!
Contact us and ask for an Industrial Coolfox sample.
PS: We send them connected to our platform ;)
When developing an IoT gadget, weareable, tracker or any other device, there are usually three important factors that will have a big impact in the success or failure of it.
All of them are very closely related. For example:
If we are talking about IoT trackers then the usability fact is directly linked to the location accuracy. These are the main methods of how the location is calculated:
So if you are involved in a real-time asset tracking project, you will probably be wondering how can you have the best accuracy, longest battery duration and lowest cost for a considerable amount of trackers. Well, there is a solution for that:
How can the accuracy of option 3 be improved? Well, a gateway antenna can be placed in the facilities or warehouses to reduce the location error from several kilometers to less than 300 meters. By using this configuration, the cost of each tracker is not increased, the battery duration is not reduced and the location accuracy is improved by a factor of ten.
During our short but intense market roller coaster startup trip, we have been able to meet with several industrial companies. Each of them had different problems, obviusly. In some cases, when we did not see a clear added value or viability, so we decided not to go for the project. However, for the other cases, we could easily solve their challenges, applying our solutions in different ways.
Here there are some real examples on how we are helping industries to get connected to the IoT Industry 4.0 concept.
If you have more (similar or different) challenges, we are always happy to listen to problems ;)
We will try our best to help you.
By the way, thank you for reading our blog!
En Stockare, seguimos avanzando, mejorando nuestros productos y adaptándolos a las necesidades reales del mercado.
Por esta razón, participaremos en evento B–Venture 2018 que se celebra en el Palacio Euskalduna durante los días 16 y 17 de Octubre, donde además de conectar con el ecosistema de emprendedores del País Vasco (startups e inversores) realizaremos un "pitch" para dar a conocer nuestra startup.
B–Venture es el mayor evento de emprendimiento del norte de España. En las dos ediciones anteriores han participado más 200 startups, se han seleccionado a concurso 48 y se han invertido más de 2 millones de euros. Entre las empresas de capital riesgo e inversores, asistirán entre otros, Indra, CAF Ventures, Acciona, Microsoft, Iberdrola, Metxa, BStartup, Laboral Kutxa, Plug & Play Spain, Lanzadera o Adara Ventures.
Durante los dos días que dura el evento, dispondremos de un stand donde podréis acercaros para conocer lo que hacemos.
Ayer, el periódico El Correo publicó un artículo sobre Stockare en relación al BVenture 2018 que se celebrará en Octubre en Bilbao.
El BVenture, es un evento que une las startups con potenciales inversores, para ello, las startups reciben una formación previo al evento.
Espero que os guste el artículo y nuestra historia particular.
