Why Work with Developers That Know AI?

Venture capital for AI-focused IoT startups is growing fast, and the acquisition of AI-focused IoT startups is on the rise. 

“Artificial intelligence seems to be on the brink of a boom. It’s now guiding decisions on everything from crop harvests to bank loans, and uses like totally automated customer service are on the horizon,” explains the Harvard Business Review.  

The use of artificial intelligence technology is not only projected to expand but also a practical way to add value to an IoT device. Using AI in an IoT device increases its value because it becomes smarter.  

Machine learning, a subset of AI, enables IoT applications to automatically identify patterns and detect anomalies in data generated by sensors within the device. In turn, that data can empower a company to improve its products and processes.  

Enhancing your organization’s IoT devices with AI will allow 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. 

Hiring an IoT Application Development Company

Rootstrap has been featured in top business magazines such as Forbes, Inc., and Entrepreneur. We’ve worked with funded startups, enterprise companies, and businesses in need of extra dev muscle, and even celebrities like Tony Robbins.

When you hire us, we go beyond IoT developers and become your true business partner. We’re dedicated to collaborating and strategizing with your team throughout the development process.

Here are more reasons to choose Rootstrap for your IoT product development:

We Know Sensors

The invention of IoT has transformed the way we use sensors. Now, robust sensor technology is no longer limited to industrial applications. Everyday consumers are able to tap into the power of sensors on the market today.

IoT devices collect data from a variety of sensors and can be used for:

  • Monitoring health stats (heart rate, blood oxygen level, etc.)
  • Tracking air quality
  • Checking water quality
  • Detecting smoke
  • More

While third parties are used to assemble IoT devices, Rootstrap maintains full responsibility for the proper functioning of the sensors. Our expertise lies in integrating the hardware and software to meet and even exceed expected results. We also have experience combining sensors on different devices to create an IoT application, product, or service. IoT technology offers a vast realm of possibilities we are here to help you explore.

Our team has worked with many types of sensors from different manufacturers. We’re committed to continuously learning about new smart sensors in the ever-changing market.

We Know Networking & Wireless Communication

IoT devices need to connect, interact, and work together quickly and efficiently. Any disruption in connection can cause severe damage to the data collected and processed by the IoT devices.

Today, several IoT communication protocols are available, all with varying 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 can be a challenge, but it’s one we’re ready to tackle.

Rootstrap’s IoT developers have an in-depth knowledge of networking and wireless communication. Our developers know each communication protocol’s strengths and weaknesses and can choose the best-suited protocols for different IoT use cases.

We Know IoT Security

Computers and smartphones have been in the consumer market for decades. Therefore, manufacturers and software developers have had time to encounter and problem-solve most vulnerabilities associated with data breaches.

On the other hand, IoT tech is still in its developing stages. Various IoT devices and applications offer different capabilities and serve separate purposes. This range of variation makes IoT devices more susceptible to data breaches.

An IoT device contains vast amounts of data, which is unique to each user. If the IoT device isn’t secured, personal data can become vulnerable to hacking and theft attempts.

Nevertheless, IoT devices can be designed to protect users from cyber-attacks. Hiring the right IoT app development company with an experienced security team can help you minimize cybersecurity risks.

At Rootstrap, we incorporate security measures from the earliest application design phases. We conduct vulnerability assessments and penetration testing for all updates. When developing IoT applications, or any kind of software, security is amongst our team’s top priorities. We work hard to ensure all security loopholes are tied up.

For example, a user running on outdated software is open to newly discovered security vulnerabilities. That’s why we incorporate automatic updating, eliminating the need for users to download updates on their IoT devices manually.

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.

The Rootstrap team can develop IoT software for both web and mobile, including IoT apps for popular mobile platforms like iOS and Android. Since most IoT users choose smartphones to manage their IoT devices, we design apps to be accessible on both iOS and Android devices.

Since our developers carefully select the right tools for building web and mobile IoT apps, we help our clients save money and hassle without ever skimping on quality and functionality.

We Know UX

Creating a great user experience (UX) is more than manufacturing stunning hardware and a beautiful UI design. This challenge is especially formidable in IoT development since it’s more complex than pure software design.

Successful IoT app design is a cross-discipline collaboration between design, technology, and business to create the optimal UX.

To meet these challenges, Rootstrap starts by working to understand the users. We consider both the maturity of the technology we’re working with and your target audience’s expectations. Our team also works to accommodate the desired complexity of your product (e.g., the number of devices the user must interact with to use it).

At Rootstrap, the UX isn’t just the responsibility of the designer. Everyone involved in your project plays an essential role in shaping your product. Our goal is to fulfill the users’ needs and provide positive experiences to build brand loyalty for your company.

We Know IoT Development Frameworks, Languages, and Technologies

IoT is rich in frameworks, languages, and technologies. Existing frameworks make IoT development easier and faster. Knowing these frameworks reduces development time and cost.

Here are some of the smart IoT frameworks our developers use to build amazing apps:

  • Kaa IoT
  • DeviceHive
  • Zetta
  • Flogo
  • Eclipse Kura

Using these frameworks allow us to build IoT apps that:

  • Allow device management
  • Handle communication protocols on software and hardware
  • Collect and analyze information
  • Improve information flow
  • Offer some AI and machine learning features

Beyond frameworks, programming languages are also needed for writing IoT apps. At Rootstrap, we carefully choose the most suitable programming language for the IoT projects we build. We ensure that the language we select has the necessary features that may be needed to expand the app in the future.

Our developers are fluent in these popular programming languages:

  • C
  • C++
  • Java
  • JavaScript
  • Python
  • PHP
  • Swift

Rootstrap developers don’t just write great code for IoT. We write code that others can understand. That way, if your company decides to take 100% of your IoT development in-house in the future, your engineers will be able to read and grasp our code.
