Welotec is a company that specializes in innovative industry 4.0 applications, that revolutionize modern manufacturing and agriculture and help build sustainable smart cities. We’ve worked on one of their fascinating ideas before, so we were very excited when they approached us with their new edge computing project.
The idea was to create a device that works as a router and allows running applications from Docker containers at the same time. The goal was to enable remote controlling and assure the security of devices that are not connected that were not connected to the network or should be protected with an independent firewall.
One of the key elements of the project was to develop a custom, Linux-based distribution for a widely utilized industrial computer, “Edge Gateway”. We were familiar with their challenges and systems, so they trusted us to deliver that element of the project.
In such complex projects, being on the same page with all participants at all times is essential. Therefore, during the development, we’ve concluded a few more face-to-face workshops to discuss ongoing challenges and choose the most efficient solutions.
With the help of the system we’ve developed, Welotec gained a profitable new product in the edge computing category, which already seems to be a milestone in terms of the company’s business development. The device has an enormous range of possible applications for the IoT-fueled Industry 4.0 companies. It has already brought many new clients to Welotec, and there surely are more to come, especially since we’re just on the verge of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In addition, the other device applications of full stack technology in industry 4.0 is also data collection, which could open up the possibility for new analytics services at a later stage.
Thank you, Welotec, for the opportunity to work on this fascinating project, and we can’t wait to hear from you again!
