Key facts
  • Device provisioning from Cloud
  • ThingWorx private Cloud
  • Firmware and configuration update
  • Portable solution (Windows, WEC2013, Linux)

RTSoft has developed a new cross-platform solution (a communication agent) for WEC2013, Windows 10 and Linux. The agent is based on framework which is an official reference implementation of a LWM2M client, and is written in C language with small memory footprint and good performance. RTSoft was a first company who ported a LWM2M client to WEC2013. Also, RTSoft implemented a communication stack for the agent which uses HTTP and CoAP protocols. These functionality were ported to WEC2013, Win 10, Linux platforms as well.

More projects
Computer vision for people flow analysis in an underground metro station

One of our customers, a CCTV system integration company, requested us to develop a system to count people and measure people flow in underground metro. The purpose of the system is to assist platform load and passenger queues. The video surveillance system had been already deployed there and RTSoft should propose a hardware and software add-on by a very competitive price. 

RTSoft helps customers to build AI + IoT applications through integration of computer vision, data analysis and augmented reality.  Our experience in embedded platforms (Intel Movidius, Nvidia Jetson, Google Coral) and dedicated ML frameworks (Openvino, TensorRT, TFLite) made it possible to fulfill this project.

System features:

  • Visitors headcount

  • Crowd headcount

  • Queue detector

  • GDPRA compliance 

OTA update for PoS Terminals
RTSoft has been tasked by major IT provider of automation systems for Retail industry to develop a solution for remote update of software (operating system and/or application) for a family of devices PoS terminals.

The solution should allow an automatic rollback in case of update failures such as connectivity problem or unexpected power loss, implement versioning and secure delivery mechanisms, and be customizable for future integrations.

Additionally, the solution should include a cloud back-end service for device and software repository, content delivery and rollout management.

The target devices’s characteristics are:

  • SoC: Mediatek MT7688
  • Flash memory: 64MB
  • Operating system: Linux (OpenWRT)

Digital cockpit
RTSoft has been chosen by Motherson Innovation GmbH, an innovative automotive company, for prototyping “The Empathic Cockpit” – a digital cockpit of the  future, harmoniously absorbing the newest available technologies for reaching a unique level of comfort and real-time functionality.
The solution was presented at the CES 2018 Show in Las Vegas.
