Working side-by-side with their hardware team in Detroit we developed all but the native device software.
The project showed once again how important the build-or-buy decision is at the start of the process. We didn't reinvent the wheel, we didn't start building from scratch. We chose to leverage Amazon's cloud solution, which facilitates device management and video streaming. This enabled us, together with Inspectron, to focus on the challenges that are unique to the context and environment in which the company operates.
Early in the process we identified a pilot customer which was critical to our success as we soon found out that the devices were being used in big hangar factories, rough environments with lots of connectivity challenges. Luckily we overcame all challenges and quickly iterated towards a stable product.
