ALGORITHM PERFECTION

Algorithms are at the heart of our understanding of sensor data collection. How you build your proprietary algorithms will determine the value your customers receive.

We specialize in the targeted generation of data points that are condensed into valuable pieces of information. The development of the algorithms to process the information is key. Our algorithm expertise lies in:

  • Machine Learning
  • Frequency Isolation and Filtering
  • Transposing Information from the Time Domain
  • Database Storage of Unstructured Data

Using the right combination of these methods requires specific knowledge of each domain. Rather than apply one methodology with a broad brush stroke, we uncover the specific data points with a tactical combination of each methodology. This results in the highest quality data generation possible.

SENSOR OPTIMIZATION

It’s easy to plug in sensors. It’s not so easy to make sense of all the junk they measure.

Choosing a Microcontroller

Not all microcontrollers chips are created equal. Silicon manufacturers differentiate themselves by specializing in a unique market niche. Many come with proprietary development environments and integrate with specific types of sensors. This step happens early in the system development process, but is one of the most important decisions because it defines the rest of the product. A solid product needs the right chip to match its function. Many sensor systems today contain microcontrollers mismatched for their application simply because the product development team has used that chip in the past and is comfortable with it.

You can screw in a light bulb with a monkey wrench because you tightened your drain pipe with it, but you’re going to go through a lot of light bulbs before the sun sets.

Power Optimization

Modern intelligent devices don’t just crunch numbers. They need to crunch numbers with strict power budgets. Optimizing the power curve of a sensor system requires detailed knowledge of the requirements of the larger system. The sensor system will perform specific functions in discrete power states, and it will need to know when to jump from one power state into the next. This allows for access to more power when it’s time to process heavy amounts of data, and it allows for power savings when the processor needs to rest. Implementing power optimization throughout development saves time and money for the end customer.

Before meeting PiMios, I didn’t recognize the Internet of Things as a valuable concept. After working with them for two years, I’ve been on the forefront of a whole new market of opportunity opening up in the sporting goods industry.
