Java Internet of Things (IoT) development will bring incredible projects to life

Internet of Things (IoT) concept is getting more and more popular today. To put it simply, this concept assumes that various devices, vehicles, machines, buildings can be connected to Internet, and they can be further linked to one another. The interconnection of these objects opens wide opportunities for automation of business processes in almost any sphere - manufacturing, agriculture, finance, medicine, education, entertainment.

Today there is a great variety of programming tools to make IoT concept a reality. In particular, IoT and Java work nicely together. Java and its frameworks are a good fit for multi-platform development and working with huge data volumes; hence, if you choose Java for IoT projects, you cannot be wrong. Java capabilities match the current trend to build software solutions for devices of various kinds and process data arrays received from them:

  • mobile devices (smartphones, tablets),
  • wearables (smart watches, activity trackers),
  • smart home devices (ventilation, heating, A/C devices),
  • and many others.

In this sense IoT with Java constitute a great technology tandem. We already have hands-on experience in this field, so we can call ourselves an IoT Java development company.

We already accomplished our internal systems integration: a ERP platform, a project management software (Redmine), and a time tracking tool (CrISStal Eye). We track all the work progress in Redmine while working on projects. Redmine is linked to CrISStal Eye, so all the time spent on this or that task is automatically tracked. The accounting of working hours is held in ERP system, which, in turn, gets all the data from CrISStal Eye automatically. This interconnection of our internal systems saves us huge amount of time and makes project management and accounting more comfortable than ever.

Besides, we know how to implement Java Internet of things solutions, such as "smart home". We started this experience with our CEO: a couple of years ago we equipped his house with special devices and brought everything together into a single control system. As a result, he can now manage his house remotely - right from the office.

Moreover, currently we are working on another sample of Java IoT solutions - a video analysis app within the "smart home" project. This platform is going to make the following features possible:

  • Objects recognition;
  • Training the system to determine the level of danger by certain parameters;
  • Notifying about the danger or the alleged illegal actions.

To achieve this we applied machine learning. In particular, we used neural networks as one of the techniques of this field. Neural networks imitate the neurons of a human brain, and they are linked to one another. They are capable of transferring data to one another and processing this data. To achieve a desired result, a neural network needs to be trained. The most common application of neural networks is recognition - i.e. object recognition, facial recognition, handwriting recognition, etc.

So, IoT using Java is doomed to success.

To sum up, joining devices and systems into one single system reduces costs significantly - both material costs and time expenses. Therefore, additional time is freed up for personal development, for business development, for family. Our Java gurus know for sure how to implement this.
