Dotmatrix, a Suffolk-based firm, has developed an IoT platform with a web-based drag and drop programming interface designed to allow companies to quickly develop applications for IoT. Co-founder Edward Forwood said that their product will help businesses to “create and deploy simple or very complex IoT applications in hours or days rather than weeks or months”.
The tool is already being used to develop applications for companies in Norfolk, including one that makes motor mechanic training rigs. Using IoT technology, tutors can now remotely introduce faults into training engines that students then have to identify and remedy.
Citing an example, Mr Forwood said: “It can save brewers a lot of time and hassle. Traditionally, they would have to visit the site regularly, including weekends, draw off some beer, measure its gravity and adjust the temperature if needed. Now they can just use their smartphone to check readings and change settings remotely.
“When the brew is finished they can print off graphs of the readings, which helps them with consistency and quality control.
“We believe this will help craft brewers save time and improve quality. There are some 1,800 craft brewers in the UK alone.”
