Inspectron is an international player that specializes in smart cameras and inspection tools geared towards large production facilities. They are continuously developing innovative and cutting-edge technologies.
When we started working with them, the company had just launched a new product line to support its integrated industrial maintenance system. Their IoT devices could capture high-quality images, but unfortunately their existing software platform was unable to process and share that data in real-time. Enter Hatch.
Allow smart devices in production facilities to ‘talk’ to each other and collaborate remotely.
Leverage Amazon’s cloud for real-time communication, even in environments with poor connectivity.
A mobile app connected to a cloud video streaming system that enables remote support sessions.
A mature software product that is being used by major players in the automotive and aerospace industry.
Working side by side with their hardware team in Detroit we developed all but their native device software.
The project showed us, once again, how important a build-or-buy decision can be. We didn't reinvent the wheel, we didn't start building from scratch, rather we leveraged Amazon's cloud solution, which facilitates device management and video streaming. This enabled us, together with Inspectron, to focus on those challenges that are unique to their context and environment.
Early in the process we identified a pilot customer which was critical to our success as it made us realize that all 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.
The mobile application we built complements Inspectron's smart devices. Technicians use the devices to create images of machines or parts, our software conjures them up on a tablet or smartphone.
In addition to the mobile application, we also developed a low-latency video streaming system allowing engineers to collaborate real-time across the United States, or even the world.
Following a successful pilot phase, Inspectron is now rolling out their smart devices and associated software all over the world. Major players from automotive and aerospace industries are showing an interest and have committed to embedding their solution into their inspection process.
