To expand the possibilities of technological advancement for one of their consumer apps, we established a consulting and development partnership with the R&D team. We took over the Bluetooth library development and created a validation tool for Android as well as iOS, which helps the client’s team test and validate their multiple hardware and firmware versions. As part of this process, we also took an active role in shaping the Bluetooth interface of new device iterations. For this, we created a hacker lab within the office that allows us to work efficiently with early stage hardware prototypes. This enables flashing firmwares on microcontrollers, soldering new batteries, and even 3D-printing a custom case to be performed effortlessly by our engineering team.
In addition to the main development workstream, we are developing proof-of-concept prototypes and study tools that help assess the usability and feasibility of adding new technologies to existing consumer products. The very productive teamwork of R&D specialists and our Software Engineers creates new possibilities for the application, which have the potential to evolve into even larger, more powerful projects in the future.
