IMPROVE YOUR CURRENT PROTOTYPE
Does your prototype work most of the time, but not quite enough to give you confidence? Are there areas that you wish could be simplified? Is the firmware or software a little buggy? Do the sensors work some of the time, but not in every use case? Is your current design team or partner having more problems than expected? If so, you’ve come to the right place.
Simplexity engineers follow a rigorous process to characterize which aspects of a prototype are designed well and need no modifications and which areas could use some redesign to meet your reliability goals.
A few examples of where we’ve improved prototypes for our clients include:
- Advising that our client switch from only using an accelerometer to an accelerometer/gyro combo to improve reliability of tracking the motion of a user in an IoT product.
- Redesigning the motion control software and firmware of a food automation vending machine. This included reworking the mechanical interfaces and handoffs from one subsystem to another to improve reliability.
- Redesigning a point of care disinfection device, Sterifre Medical AURA, to reduce noise, weight and cost to meet product and manufacturability requirements.
