Our roots are in the field of embedded computers. We began by addressing the challenge of real-time control of machines: from day one we knew that the right answer delivered too late becomes the wrong answer, so we learned how to ensure accuracy and reliability together with timely delivery of information.
While we continue to enhance our real-time control offering, we more and more address the challenge of creating end-to-end solutions to seamlessly interconnect distributed smart objects and move valuable data between machines, not just within machines.
The technological paradigm followed by Eurotech is Pervasive Computing, which combines three key factors: the miniaturisation of computers capable of processing information; their spread in the real world – in buildings and machinery, on board vehicles, on persons and in the environment; and their ability to network and communicate.
Internet of Things
With a tiny, connected computer attached, any object can generate a data stream and potentially become an asset monitored via the web: from a vending machine to a money bundle, from an agricultural vehicle to a rail crossing. But to create the so-called Internet of Things you must manage the interface between real world and digital world, between sensors and web, between devices and Cloud.
At Eurotech, we know both how to process significant data in real world applications and how to move it into the Cloud. Today, all our hardware platforms and devices can easily plug into the Cloud infrastructure, allowing our partners and customers to build flexible IT installations that can support new value-add services and asset monitoring applications.
What many of our customers are seeking is an expert technology centre, and they frequently find that Eurotech is the right partner for innovating their products and way of doing business. They want ready-to-use building blocks to reduce their time-to-market and focus on their core activities. They often need solutions for heavy-duty usage conditions and mission critical applications, or long-term supply guarantees.
