SENSOR FUSION ALGORITHMS
Advanced sensor solutions engineering to help you observe the world around, amplify your power of senses, and avail yourself of control and unprecedented data granularity obtained from sensor-equipped devices.
Softeq’s team has a way with the sensor technology. We provide businesses with comprehensive development support in this field: from sensor-based product design to the engineering of an entire ecosystem that perceives signals from the environment, processes this input and offers end-user tools to visualize and analyze such sensory data. Taking advantage of our feats of engineering and innovation in the hardware field, we are ready to push forward your sensor-rich solutions from the circuit-board level.
We can help your company take advantage of the sensor technology and develop a device — the core part of your solution — leveraging the possibilities of these types of sensors:
Sensors make an intrinsic element of today’s wearables and electronics. Even a tiny wireless sensor-based device attached to an old piece of industrial equipment that, nonetheless, has years of very decent operation ahead can give an incredible amount of data about machinery performance, its calibration and maintenance opportunities. The solution has a huge money-saving potential and may become a noticeable productivity booster.
Although, these days the majority of sensor ICs come pre-calibrated for a digital output, to get more flexibility in optimizing incoming signals, perform more complex measurements and manipulate high-speed sensor data, it may be reasonable to give preference to an analog sensor. It is especially true for projects in the industrial automation, avionics, and automotive fields. Armed with about two decades of experience in electronics engineering, we can help you put together and configure sensor components that manipulate analog signals, interfacing sensors with microprocessors and MCUs, and enabling further data processing in a digital form. This includes:
SIGNAL CONDITIONING CIRCUIT AND ANALOG FRONT ENDS
Calibration of sensor signals to reduce noise, reinforce signal strength, and eliminate signal perturbations (amplification, filtering, and isolation) before they can be manipulated further.
ANALOG-TO-DIGITAL CONVERTERS (ADC)
Transforming a previously conditioned analog signal input into a digital output, which then goes to the logic part of a device for computation.
Serial or parallel communication buses (UART, SPI, I2C) to connect ADCs to microprocessors, MCUs, DSPs, where calculations with converted digital signals are performed.
Softeq has already put massive electronics engineering effort into a wealth of projects related to the creation of sensor-enabled devices. We’ve honed our skills during field R&D activities. Make use of our extensive hardware design expertise to take your innovation plans from an idea through device prototypes ready for mass production to a hi-end working solution that is designed to listen to multiple real-world signals.
Our team will handle the full cycle from conceptualization and requirements gathering to a fully verified pre-production prototype, its optimization for mass production and comprehensive assistance with setting up the manufacturing process. Softeq’s engineers will carefully pick up device components, and elegantly arrange all required modules on a printed circuit board of your envisioned solution, allowing for optimized PCB real estate, operation efficiency, and cost effectiveness:
After raw signals are conditioned and converted into a digital form, they undergo further processing to deliver obtained sensor measurements to user devices, store them locally or in the cloud, or convert certain values into output control signals. Depending on the complexity of your solution and your goals, Softeq will lend you our professional assistance at the embedded processing level.
With dedicated centers of tech excellence, covering hardware, embedded software, web and mobile development competences, Softeq is well-versed to technically underpin your sensor-focused undertakings by designing and developing comprehensive Internet of Things solutions that come as an all-inclusive package. We deliver the solutions that help our global clients become data savvier, do more with less, switch to automated workflows, and reach the areas of their business previously unreachable by a man by taking advantage of automatic control possibilities and the remote control function.
Device hardware, firmware for sensor signal processing, drivers exposing APIs to interface with PCs, mobile phones and other consumer devices.
Client apps leveraging real-time sensor signals, getting personalized stats, notifications and more, based on a sensory input.
