36Zero approached us with a requirement for an asset tracking system. The design was an iteration of an existing design that was built on a wireless mesh network. The design consisted of an asset tracker component and network infrastructure. Data regarding the movement of assets was transmitted from the asset tracker through the network to a cloud back end that was developed by the client. This information was then presented to the end user via a web app.
Conficio used a nRF52 microcontroller to create a network that was able to cover a site. This allowed devices within the covered area to report their approximate location. The data was transported through the network to a gateway and forwarded to the client’s server.
During the project, component availability became an issue. Once the client had secured stock of the selected microcontroller, the PCB design was finalised and released to production.
