Below are more reasons to choose Rootstrap for your IoT product development.
How AI makes IoT Smarter
Various companies now use artificial intelligence (AI) to make their IoT devices smarter.
IoT devices collect large amounts of data. The developers you hire should be able to perform complex data analysis to understand and utilize that data.
Companies with new and existing IoT applications are already using AI. That’s why you should care about hiring the right IoT app development company that understands AI.
Here at Rootstrap, we’re a team of data scientists, AI analysts, designers, full-stack developers, software architects, and IoT developers. We have all the necessary skills your company needs to build a smart IoT device.
Rootstrap offers a variety of services in IoT software development. We’re capable of building consumer and enterprise IoT devices.
Why should you care about working with IoT developers that know AI?
- Venture capital for AI-focused IoT startups is growing fast.
- The acquisition of AI-focused IoT startups is rising.
- According to Gartner, over 80% of enterprise IoT projects will include an AI component by the end of 2022.
Using AI in your IoT device increases its value because it becomes smarter. Machine learning, a subset of AI, gives your IoT application the ability to automatically identify patterns and detect anomalies in the data that smart sensors and the device generated.
Enhancing your IoT device with AI allows you to create new products, services, or features that consumers and businesses will like.
By working with Rootstrap, you’ll have a team of experienced AI developers building your IoT application.
Our developers know how to use AI to transform the IoT device and make sense of the data collected.
We have a deep understanding of sensors
Companies and organizations have been using various kinds of sensors for a long time. But, the invention of IoT has transformed the way we use sensors.
The use of sensors is no longer limited to companies and organizations. Ordinary individuals can now tap into the power of different sensors that are available today.
There are sensors for:
- Monitoring your health status (e.g., a heartbeat)
- Tracking air quality
- Checking water quality
- Detecting smoke
- And more
IoT devices collect data from a variety of sensors.
Even though third parties assemble the IoT devices, Rootstrap is fully responsible for the functioning of the sensors in them. Our expertise lies in integrating the hardware and software to provide the expected result.
We can also combine various sensors on different devices to create an IoT application, product, or service. There’s no limit to what we can do with them.
Our team has worked with many types of sensors from different manufacturers. We also are continuously learning about new smart sensors in the everchanging market.
We know networking and wireless communication
IoT devices need to connect, interact, and work together with fast speed. Any disruption in connection can cause serious damage to the data collected and processed by the IoT devices.
There’re several IoT communication protocols available with different capabilities, data rates, communication range, power, and memory. Each protocol has its advantages and disadvantages.
Some communication protocols are more suitable for some use cases and devices than others. Choosing the perfect protocol for a sensor and IoT device is a tricky task.
Rootstrap’s IoT developers have an in-depth knowledge of networking and wireless communication. Our developers know the strengths and weaknesses of each communication protocol. They can choose the best-suited protocols for different IoT use cases.
We’re aware of IoT security
Computers and smartphones have existed for years. Therefore, manufacturers and software developers have had time to deal with most vulnerabilities associated with data breaches.
On the other hand, IoT tech is still in its developing stages. Various IoT devices and applications serve different purposes and have different capabilities. This makes IoT devices more susceptible to data breaches.
Nevertheless, IoT devices can be fully protected from cyber-attacks. It’s essential to hire the right IoT app development company that also has an experienced security team.
At Rootstrap, we incorporate security early during the application design phase. We conduct vulnerability assessments and penetration testing for all updates. We take security seriously when developing IoT applications.
We always ensure that all security loopholes are closed.
For example, a user running on outdated software is open to newly discovered security vulnerabilities. Because of this reason, we make sure that there’s no need for users to download updates on their IoT devices manually.
An IoT device contains vast amounts of data, which is unique to each user. If the IoT device isn’t secured, its data becomes vulnerable to hacking attempts and theft.
Rootstrap security experts have decades of experience in web security. They harden security on all components of your IoT application.
We know web and mobile development
Your IoT software is a dashboard (on web or mobile) where users manage and control all IoT devices connected to it. The dashboard collects information from sensors and presents it to users.
Our team can develop IoT software for both web and mobile. And not just that. We can also develop IoT apps for popular mobile platforms like iOS and Android.
Most IoT users choose smartphones to manage their IoT devices. This is why your IoT app should be available on both iOS and Android devices.
It’s easy and less expensive to build IoT apps for iOS and Android when you hire Rootstrap. That may not be the case with many other IoT app development companies.
Our developers choose and use the right tools to build web and mobile IoT apps for our clients.
We’re experts at creating a great user experience for IoT users
Your IoT system could have a stunning piece of hardware, beautiful UI, and its users could still have a poor experience of the product as a whole. IoT design is more complex than pure software design.
There’re many aspects to consider when designing an IoT app. There must be a cross-discipline collaboration between design, technology, and business to create a great user experience (UX) for an IoT app.
Yes, great UX starts with understanding the users. In IoT, the designer can’t meet those users’ needs without the technology enablers and business models.
IoT designers need to know the maturity of the technology they’re working with along with understanding the expectations of the users. They also need to grasp the complexity of the service (e.g., the number of devices the user must interact with to use it).
When designing an IoT app that connects to many products or sensors, there’re lots of factors the designer must consider.
At Rootstrap, the UX isn’t just the responsibility of the designer. It’s for everyone involved in your project. Our goal is to fulfil the users’ needs and provide positive experiences that keep them loyal to our client’s brand.
We understand various IoT development frameworks, languages, and technologies
IoT is rich in frameworks, languages, and technologies. There’re existing frameworks that make IoT development easier and faster. Knowing these frameworks reduces development time and cost.
Our IoT developers know these frameworks. They use them to build amazing apps.
Some smart IoT frameworks:
- Allow device management.
- Handle communication protocols on software and hardware.
- Collect and analyze information.
- Improve information flow.
- Offer some AI and machine learning features.
IoT frameworks such as Kaa IoT, DeviceHive, Zetta, Flogo, and Eclipse Kura make IoT development faster.
Our developers are fluent in these languages.
Rootstrap developers don’t only know how to write great code for IoT. They write code that others can understand. In case there’s a need to take 100% of your IoT development in-house in the future, your engineers will be able to read and grasp our code.
We choose the most suitable programming language for the IoT projects we build. We ensure that the language we choose has the necessary features that may be needed to expand the app in the future.
Rootstrap can assist you in developing your IoT project from the ground up. We can refine an already running IoT app. And we can also incorporate an IoT solution into existing infrastructure.
Our large team of talented developers has helped everyone, from first-time founders to multinational corporations, build incredible software while staying lean. We can help you, too.
