Atomation’s IoT platform is built to connect anything to the cloud with easy and fast integration. The platform is comprised of the following components:
A self-contained unit called an ‘Atom’ - an electronic circuit board with embedded code that is connected to sensors and actuators. Each Atom has its own power source, communication capabilities with other Atoms, mobile devices, gateways, cloud services and a plug for connecting additional enhancement modules - ‘skins’.
The Atomation mobile SDK communicates information picked up by the Atom and transfers data to the cloud. The SDK also allows developers to build mobile applications to seamlessly interact with the Atoms and the cloud. In addition, the SDK enables an easy integration with third party hardware kits, enabling users to build IoT apps communicating with the hardware of their choice.
A dedicated gateway communicates information between Atoms and the cloud. Atomation’s gateway is agnostic, and can communicate via 4G, LTE, NB, Ethernet or WIFI. A mobile device (IOS or Android) with applications built over Atomation’s SDK can also serve as a gateway.
