When we learned about the Kitchen Budapest hackathon for home automation we just knew  we have to attend. The promise of open source hardware, young innovators and good programming skills is what convinced us and we gladly accepted the invitation. The topic of the hackathon “Home, smart home” was a perfect match for us, so we provided contestants with the Internet of Things platform for rapid prototyping, as well as assisted them during the whole quest.

The first hackathon took place in Budapest in the Kitchen Budapest revenue, where we benefited from their amazing electronics workplace in order to create cases for prototypes during the event. Read More

IoT for Industry 4.0: Real Case Studies and Applicability

By | Log | No Comments

The concept of Internet of Things emphasises the fact that any electronic device can be connected to the Internet in order to gather, generate or exchange data, thus proving an extended applicability.

It is the case for many industries that energy frequently represents the second largest operational cost. But energy is hard to monitor and energy fluctuations can have a negative impact on the production line as such. However, most companies lack cost effective measurement systems and modelling tools and/or performance and management tools to optimise energy use in individual production operations, much less in real-time across multiple operations, facilities, or an entire supply chain. It is a fact that each machine comes with a “personalised” software, but more often than not this does not allow a compact view of the data gathered from the production line as a whole. Thus, although data is available, it is hard to understand or visualise, lacking predictive validity in the case of incidents. Read More

By | Log | No Comments, one of Europe’s top 12 IoT startups in 2015, and finalist in the Challenge UP! incubation program, has joined forces with Freescale Semiconductor, a global leader in embedded processing solutions, to bring you the Internet of Tomorrow.

Through this collaboration, and benefiting from Freescale’s expertise in leading the evolution of embedded technologies, strives to help bring the Internet of Things to life by enabling not only the interconnectivity of everyday objects, but also widened cooperation with other devices, humans, infrastructure, and environment.

Specifically, by entering Freescale’s Connect Partner Program, brings its IoT PaaS to Freescale’s comprehensive ecosystem. The platform, which is modular and built to scale with security and performance as primary objectives, will integrate with Freescale’s hardware (sensors, processors, microcontrollers), allowing development and delivery of embedded solutions for IoT product design, and ensuring the highest levels of integrated security. While using the innovative cloud software provided by, IoT professional developers are assisted in every step of developing IoT products, as well as during the product life cycle. Thus, they can concentrate on hardware development, collaborate with other developers online, and fasten the market launch of their products/solutions.

As part of becoming a Freescale partner, will begin developing demos and reference implementations featuring its dashboard for data-gathering and analysis, remote control, and event-based alerting atop Freescale hardware. The first line of supported hardware will be the Freescale Kinetis® K6x Ethernet Crypto Microcontrollers. Subsequently, other Freescale devices (processors, sensors, embedded hardware) will be certified and integrated with in order to provide comprehensive hardware and software solutions for Freescale’s integrators.
