Remote monitoring solution features at Farnborough show
A remote monitoring solution is being demonstrated by ByteSnap Design at the Southern Manufacturing & Electronics exhibition in Farnborough (March 21-23). The ByteSnap team will demonstrate how its remote monitoring demo with ground movement sensors can help improve maintenance response times.
The Bridge Bash demo shows how LoRa can be deployed for status monitoring/reporting. It simulates a collision event between a train and a stationary object, such as a bridge or barricade. Acceleration data is collected from the stationary object and transmitted wirelessly to a receiving module.
Using the receiving module, real time information about the object’s acceleration can be processed and displayed to the user.
The remote monitoring system can be powered by a super low-power cell battery.
During the event, visitors can also see “The Product Design Journey” display showing how ByteSnap Design worked with a smart home security company to help develop their ground-breaking device.
This particular project won the electronics design consultancy the Design Team of the Year accolade at the prestigious 2016 British Engineering Excellence Awards.
The latest version of ByteSnap’s user interface development framework, SnapUI is also on show.
Now supporting Raspberry Pi, it’s more proficient than ever at taking software to production.
When designing new hardware devices, keeping the user interface design in step with hardware development can be difficult.
And when the user interface is overlooked or is the last consideration in the design process, projects can suffer significant delays in getting product to market.
SnapUI mitigates this risk by enabling development of the user interface independently of the hardware, on a reference hardware platform or widely available Raspberry Pi, ready for deployment to the target device when the hardware is ready.
