Award-winning embedded systems consultancy ByteSnap Design will be highlighting its Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE/BLTE) services to improve efficiency, performance and drive innovation in project developments at EDS 2017.
ByteSnap has designed a number of BTLE devices in project applications including asset/people tracking, environmental monitoring of equipment and support for VR through detecting the proximity of objects in the real world.
In an on-stand demonstration, ByteSnap will automate toy trains using a microcontroller to provide a working display of BTLE for object detection and tracking.
Placed on each train is a Silicon Labs sensor puck which broadcasts data for temperature, humidity and light. As part of the display, a custom Android device designed by ByteSnap – for use in multimedia tour guides – detects which of the trains is nearest and displays the sensor data for that puck. The Android device itself is an example of a full custom hardware design which incorporates standard Android features tailored for a particular vertical market.
ByteSnap is experienced in developing products based on both chipset and module designs to cater for different volume demands. Low power and battery devices demanding maintenance cycles in years can be demonstrated with some of these innovative designs.
ByteSnap will also highlight embedded Linux solutions to collect information and relay to local/cloud services.
A recent embedded Linux project for CueScript, a leading global teleprompter systems and broadcast peripherals supplier. will be highlighted at EDS.
Linux development was coupled with the use of ByteSnap’s lightweight user interface development tool, SnapUI for its application development.
The new system has the speed and performance required by CueScript’s next generation of real-time teleprompters which are now being used in newsrooms around the world.
“In the past year we’ve delivered a range of products across multiple verticals –battery-powered, mains-powered, long-range, short-range devices… we design flexibly and creatively to meet our clients’ specific requirements,” says director Graeme Wintle. “Our consultants, specialists in embedded hardware, firmware, operating systems and more, collectively have hundreds of man-hours experience in delivering wireless low power products.”
