Internet of Things (IoT)

The Internet of Things refers to connected instrumentation, control and reporting, relying on cloud-based platforms and low-cost controller boards to build anything from aquarium monitoring to production line switches, or even a massive array of independent wind sensors. Advances in low-cost cellular and radio networks allow monitoring in previously off-grid locations, with data and computational power either nearby (local), remote (cloud), or a combination of the two for fast local response with backup (hybrid).

Automation Creations, Inc. (ACI) provides more than just custom software development. Our team members come from the disciplines of Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Electrical Engineering in addition to Computer Science and Computer Engineering. Our engineering backgrounds, combined with years of software development experience, position our team to help your manufacturing software optimization, environmental monitoring, or new production implementation projects. We understand more than just Boolean operations, like shop floor operations, fabrication processes, sensor fusion and Big Data, integrated controls and inventory optimization. Our engineers truly enjoy hard problems and many have 10 to 20 years of industry experience.

Cloud resources we can help deploy include advances in Azure IoT Hub where much of the basics are taken care of: automated provisioning of each device, communication encryption/decryption, and scalability into billions of devices. Other cloud resources that save coding time include predictive learning algorithms for machine health monitoring, dashboard consoles with rich analytics and device simulation for testing. ACI is a Microsoft Silver Partner for software development and can help you leverage existing tools to save development costs.

Combining innovative programming and database solutions to improve your process is our passion. Our goal in every project, no matter how big or small, is to form strong relationships with our clients and to work together as a team to find the best solution for their business. Furthermore, our excellent employee retention helps keep your application running and growing: Many of our developers have been with us for 5 to 15 years. We strive to become our client's most valuable technology partner.

e technology we develop together becomes your intellectual property. We are comfortable signing non-disclosure agreements in order to help with your proprietary algorithms, methods and trade secrets.
