An Internet of Things (IoT) system is comprised of data collecting sensors, a hub or gateway and the back-end which includes the cloud. Indesign, LLC has worked with clients to create sensors and data collectors as well as gateways that enable an IoT ecosystem.
The connections in an IoT system are typically wireless. Indesign implements short distance wireless connections as well as long-range connections via cellular or satellite. The short distance wireless leverages a hub (i.e. smart phone or PC) to get to the cloud where a cellular connection directly connects the sensor to the cloud.
IoT applications has enable many different markets including:
- Smart home
- Smart farming
- Smart appliances
- Smart medical
- And many others
