New solution cuts down IoT development time by 75%

A new solution from Eseye aims to reduce Internet of Things development time by more than 75%.

The launch of Eseye’s new HERA300 modular IoT hardware platform is designed to reduce device prototyping time from an average of 12 months down to three months or less, the UK-based cellular IoT connectivity company says.

On average, an IoT device currently takes around 12 months to bring to market – a barrier to the success of many IoT projects. 

"The modular HERA300 IoT device and rapid development platform fast-tracks the process from initial idea to a working prototype in a matter of weeks, ultimately ensuring momentum is maintained and businesses see a quicker return on investment," explains Jon Darley, director of things at Eseye.

"When combined with Eseye’s rapid prototyping methodology, HERA300 allows IoT theories to be tested in their native environments, where real data can be gathered to support operational planning and investment business case requirements," he says. 

"Once the required data is captured, it can be seamlessly delivered to hyperscale cloud providers, such as AWS, through preferred System Integrator partners, to maximise a wide range of additional IoT services and functionality."

Alongside HERA300, Eseye has developed an eight-step rapid prototyping methodology that enables the rapid build and deployment of IoT devices. 

From building the initial model, to carrying out iterative test and development stages, resulting in a prototype that can be deployed immediately into the field. Darley says using Eseye’s methodology removes a significant amount of financial and reputational risk throughout the exploration phase of the project and builds significantly on the likelihood of success for the final approved designs. 

 “With the rapid growth of IoT ideas we recognised the need to create a solution that would embed a technically robust testing process, but also significantly reduce time to market and increase competitive advantage," Darley says. 

"The HERA300 modular IoT hardware platform and rapid prototyping methodology successfully fulfil this brief and reduce IoT device development time by at least three quarters. This will unlock significant opportunities for companies that wouldn’t otherwise have been able to invest in IoT development with its previously associated costs and time to market," he explains.

 "The HERA300 platform carries essential functionality on a modular board, meaning the platform can be rapidly adapted to meet the testing requirements and ensure project success," Darley says. 

"It features multiple sockets allowing for up to five additional sensors or modules to be plugged in, a modem interface, core software architecture including over the air software updates, and built-in temperature, pressure and humidity sensing designed to monitor the board’s environment."
