Transcript

  • 1. IoTino ”Arduino for Internet of Things” Anders Borg Abiro 2014-10-15
  • 2. Introduction • Arduino-compatible platform for medium-volume real life Internet of Things applications (home control, healthcare, environment control/sensing etc) • Integrated communication (primarily BLE) and digital/analog I/O • Low cost, low power and small size • Custom form factor and port configuration for minimum size • Control via apps in smartphones/tablets and aggregating IoT centrals
  • 3. USPs • Quick prototyping and product deployment • Modular solution for many applications (including yet to be thought up ones) • Many already know the Arduino architecture, that is very easy to use, so little new to learn, and easy to find developers • The same architecture can be used in cost-optimized solutions at a later stage • Developers can focus on the software, peripheral and usage aspects
  • 4. Rationale • Internet of Things as a hyped trend and a real need • Actually this market niche is growing amazingly fast due to the broad applicability and potential gains • Bluetooth LE/Smart as the main link for local communication • Many IoT devices need to be battery-powered • Many developers around the world are experienced in Arduino • Possibility to sell add-ons due to custom I/O port
  • 5. Arduino Compatibility • Compatible with non-Mega boards, except in terms of port configuration • Surface-mounted ATmega328 (or better) for 100% software and port compatibility • Arduino Bootloader • Programming via USB • All Arduino ports available for use via the I/O port • Custom configuration with 28 pins in two rows plus a few extra pins for future use • Custom shields are needed, but the components could be the same as on standard shields • A bridge shield would enable connection of existing Arduino-compatible shields
  • 6. Software Platform • Arduino Bootloader • API for communicating with master devices • API for Xively • API for Sen.se • Utility library for rapid development of IoT solutions • Definition of a standard network protocol for IoT, unless available
  • 7. Products: Main Board • 3V3 with DC/DC to 5V (optional?) • Atmel MCU in minimal casing • Integrated communication to cut cost, minimize size • with BLE (for initial board) • with 100baseT + PoE • with Wi-Fi • not simultaneously
  • 8. Products: Main Board • Same MCU, programming and ports as standard non-Mega Arduino • Battery-powered, but with the option of external (stabilized) power • Holes for stacking with custom shields • Approx. 1” square (quite feasible) Battery BLE Module + Antenna MCU + USB + DC/DC Ports (2 rows)
  • 9. Products: Shields • Shields should be possible to stack, like for original Arduino • Types: • Prototyping, Zigbee, Buffered/decoupled digital/analog I/O, Interface to normal Arduino shields, USB host, CAN host, NFC transponder, weather station, MIDI, camera etc
  • 10. Project Steps 1. Prototype your solution using a generic IoTino • Add peripherals • Develop software 2. CAD your own board with integrated peripherals for optimized cost/size • Use the peripherals and software you used/developed earlier
  • 11. Partners • Providers of hardware design and production setup have been contacted about feasibility and interest in exploring this further • Consulting companies have been contacted about providing software development and custom designs
  • 12. Funding • Contemplating crowd-sourcing: Kickstarter, Indiegogo etc • Requires a clear message and promotional information, and possibly also a working prototype, before the market is approached • Yet, some only post 3D simulations • Use this as a way to market and pre-sell (like everybody else) • Possibly local funding would be better, especially if beta customer
  • 13. Questions • Business • Does it make business sense? • Can it scale enough business-wise? • How much funding is needed for prototyping and a first commercial product? • Tech • Hardware too limited for IoT applications? • Can there be issues with the fact that Arduino is open source?
  • 14. Principal System
