Real-Life Examination Examples:
Case Study: Brazil’s Industrial Smart Bracelet
In this real-world example, we partnered with a customer from Brazil who had specific requirements for an industrial-grade smart bracelet. They needed a smart bracelet with an easily removable strap and, more importantly, unmatched quality and accuracy in sensors.
The Brazil customer had previously tested consumer-grade smartwatches but found that the quality and accuracy of the PPG (Photoplethysmography) and acceleration sensors fell short of their needs. They were on the lookout for a high-accuracy smart bracelet that could provide the best PPG and G-sensor quality to kickstart their project.
The customer from Brazil had a highly capable development team proficient in communication protocols, algorithms, AI, firmware, and software. They aimed to leverage our semi-finished hardware to develop their firmware and integrate their proprietary algorithm into the hardware.
To meet their objectives, the project timeline was divided as follows:
- 10pcs Proof of Concept (POC) units for testing and firmware development: Completed in 1 month.
- 300pcs pilot order with their firmware: Completed in 1 month.
- 2000pcs bulk order: Completed in 2 months.
- A total of 26,000pcs in 1 year.
- The sample testing phase included:
- 5pcs open devices for firmware development.
- 5pcs closed devices for function testing.
- Initial Testing: The journey began with testing our standard smartwatch equipped with the Nordic82540 chipset, featuring PPG, acceleration (3-axis), and body temperature sensors. The Brazil customer approved our high-quality and high-accuracy PPG and other sensors.
- Open Device Sample: Immediately, we initiated the development of open device samples tailored to their unique needs.
- Testing Hex and Bin Files: The Brazil customer provided hex and bin files for testing in open devices and closed fixtures to verify the functionality of downloads and over-the-air (OTA) updates.
- Technical Collaboration: After the signing of a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) and payment for open device technical and document support (approximately 7000USD), we provided crucial technical documents and extended technical support through email and video meetings.
- Firmware Development: We worked collaboratively to develop the 2nd version firmware based on the open device. Rigorous testing ensured that the PPG light and other features met their requirements.
- Sample Shipment: For ease of development, we ensured that the open device samples were carefully packaged and included convenient cable access. This ensured that our customer received 100% correct samples for testing and development.
This real-life case study illustrates how our open devices empower customers to achieve their specific goals. From sensor quality to firmware development, customization, and seamless collaboration, we’re here to help you bring your unique wearable solution to life.
In the dynamic landscape of wearable technology, the power to innovate and customize your smartwatch solution has never been more accessible.
