New customisable IOT platforms

Louise Smyth

Stadium Group has announced the launch of a new design offering which enables OEMs to develop smarter IoT solutions and achieve accelerated speed to market.

The S-series of platform devices offer customers an alternative to a fully customised IoT solutions which can be time consuming and expensive. The S-series platforms, developed in Stadium’s dedicated connectivity design centre in Kista, Sweden, provide a flexible, scalable and
cost-effective solution with reduced R&D risk and future-proofed technology.

The first platform to launch this month is the S-track Nano, a compact self-install vehicle tracking device using the latest GNSS, 3G and
Bluetooth technology.

The S-track Nano provides real-time tracking of a vehicle’s position, speed and acceleration using A-GPS and a 3-axis accelerometer. Vehicle
diagnostics and driving statistics are continuously collected through the CAN interface and communicated over the cellular network.

The S-track Nano platform is ideal for vehicle tracking applications such as fleet management, vehicle leasing, usage-based insurance and crash
detection. The hardware has been designed into a small package, which is an attractive feature for customers where space is typically limited. The
device is around 70% complete in terms of usability, which means it is possible to customise an IoT solution according to the customer’s
requirement thus enabling the end solution to be developed much quicker than creating a solution from scratch. Speed to market is vastly
improved, and customised IP is owned by the customer; strengthening their competitive advantage.

Further S-series platform devices are in development for other vertical markets, including an asset/cargo tracker, a BT sensor and an inventory
control unit, and will be launched by Stadium during 2018.
