Success story in detail

Business challenge: Building a new IoT solution to expand market reach

The client was looking for an experienced partner who would assist in creating a solution in a short time frame. This was required to achieve certification in Canada and establish new partnerships there. Therefore, the N-iX team was selected as an R&D partner to implement a full-stack IoT solution for industrial fleet tracking and management.

N-iX approach: From research to full-cycle software development

We started our cooperation with detailed research and feasibility studies. N-iX provided full-cycle product development services to the client, including product feature assessment, solution architecture design, and full-scale implementation and support. Currently, our team works on the development of an OEM-based Linux connectivity gateway and an Android-based app.

Implementation: Building a connectivity gateway and an Android-based app

Gateway development

N-iX engineers contributed to the development of an OEM-based Linux connectivity gateway. This gateway is installed in a vehicle for monitoring and managing activities tracked by a GPS system. The data is transmitted from each vehicle to the owner and converted into useful information. This information is easily monitored, analyzed, and stored for future reference. The system enables its users to access a range of important details, including vehicle traveling speed, fuel consumption, engine efficiency, and more. Also, our team helped integrate the system with existing customer products. We completed system integration with a Google Cloud-based IoT platform with a complex analytics engine.

New solution development

The N-iX team plays an important role in the development of an Android app for rugged tablets with a management panel available for the driver. A custom IoT platform has been developed with the help of GCP IoT Cloud tools, including messaging, device onboarding, connectivity control, and user control.

What we have achieved together: Smart fleet monitoring, effective operation, and improved safety

The N-iX team has supported the client in solution architecture design and full-scale implementation of the OEM-based Linux connectivity gateway. We have integrated it with a Google Cloud-based IoT platform and existing customer services to launch a new product in the client's ecosystem. Our team has largely contributed to the development of an Android app for rugged tablets, allowing the driver to manage all services. We have also been working on incorporating other peripheries and sensors.
