Hardware design / Software development
A smart controller with integrated battery charger and communication gateway to allow remote management of solar lights. We were challenged with developing a street light wholly powered by solar energy. The day powers the night.
THE STORY OF OUR SUCCESS
Solar power is not a new play, but optimising its usage is of great value if you have smart IoT solutions. Grinn produced a controller and communication gateway to allow remote management and maximise energy efficiency. With a preview of all the parameters of the lamp’s activity, it’s possible to detect damage or malfunction early, verify the battery level and check if photovoltaic panel cleaning is required.
HOW GRINN BRINGS THE BENEFIT
The system is wireless and the whole solution is managed through the cloud, thus reducing system maintenance costs. We achieved this by building a successful partnership and establishing a lasting relationship with the customer.
We learnt about the technology and its specific features so that we could turn the data stored in the cloud into a digital front-line technician that keeps the system running smoothly and a minimal cost.
From homes to hospitals, street lights to ski lopes, there's a growing range of IoT solutions powered by Grinn. Here are just some of them.
Optics11Interferometers are precision measurement tools used in specialist nanotechnology labs. Grinn designed and developed a new industry-leading IoT device around the client’s sensor tool, providing PCB, visualization software and device firmware.
CircaSleep matters. Smart alarm clocks, which wake you up naturally and promote healthier sleep cycles, are increasingly popular. Circa—developed by Grinn—really is the alarm clock of your dreams.
VersaVersa is a device that tracks baggage while traveling. Users can keep an eye on their luggage simply by placing the device inside, meaning travelers can relax during their journey with a weight off their mind.
