The Internet of Things (IoT) has transformed the way companies do business. New product lines, recurring revenue streams, more efficient operations, higher quality, and faster time-to-market are all within reach with the introduction of smart interconnections between systems and assets. Altair has the knowledge and technology to help you realize your Smart Product Development vision from beginning to end – from ideation, to optimization, to launch and operation.
Connected product design requires a different mindset. Where should you put sensors to collect data? How will you connect to the internet? Is your connection secure? Reliable? How will you update the firmware? How will the product work in a larger network of assets? At Altair, we take all of these things into consideration from the very beginning.
Despite the prevalence of epilepsy, it can take years to diagnose correctly and treat, with monitoring being costly. A European technology leader in smart remote-monitoring medical solutions found a better way to diagnose and monitor epilepsy. It designed a suit-like device equipped with medical-grade sensors and used Altair SmartCore™, part of the AltairSmartWorks suite, to collect data gathered by the suit’s sensors and transfer it directly to healthcare providers. The flexible, open-architecture SmartCore platform securely collects and analyzes biometric data in real time, and it’s fully compliant with healthcare regulations.
Reprint of the July 2021 cover feature in Microwave Journal Simulation-driven virtual prototyping is employed in the design of modern smart products to accelerate product development speed, ensure intrinsic product qualities and improve the decision-making process during development. It results in smart products that are more cost effective with higher quality and reliability.
Toggled iQ combines web application, mobile application, hardware, analytics, and edge computing to create a one-of-a-kind smart building data and device management system. This smart-lighting manufacturer wanted to develop a new, connected lighting and building management solution to help their customers save money, improve comfort, and comply with new regulations. They used Altair SmartWorks to build a complete front end, back end, and edge compute architecture. With this, Toggled’s customers can now manage users, onboard devices, manage compute workloads in their gateway product, develop building automation, and optimize energy usage.
