Samuel Bailey, Skyrad Consulting
The Internet of Things (IoT) is an exciting and rapidly growing segment of the tech economy. Skyrad has invented several IoT sensors, including LeakBot (www.leakbot.io), a clip-on flow sensor, and HeatDoctor, a remote central heating diagnostics system.
During the development of these products, Skyrad explored a number of different approaches. These included running prototype MATLAB® algorithms in the cloud, translating MATLAB code to embedded C code by hand, deploying algorithms with MATLAB Production Server™, and ultimately running algorithms on the smart sensors themselves, designed using Simulink™ and deployed using Embedded Coder®.
Samuel will share how Skyrad developed the product, why they chose the particular architecture at each stage, and what was successful (and less successful). He will also give advice to anyone looking to develop or deploy IoT systems, and to anyone who is looking to deploy MATLAB in the cloud.
