Company Description
Send any data with sound. Chirp technology encodes data into a series of audible or inaudible near-ultrasonic pitches and tones to form a ‘sonic barcode’. Data is encoded on a sending device before being transmitted, over the air, to a receiving device, or group of devices where it is decoded.

Kepware Technologies, established in 1995, is a software development company headquartered in Portland, Maine. Kepware develops software solutions for the Industrial Automation Industry that help bridge the communication gap between diverse hardware and software applications. Their products enable informed decision-making from the shop floor to the top floor by providing consistent, reliable data across the enterprise. Kepware only delivers industrial-strength solutions that are designed, tested, and certified to meet the demands of industrial automation applications. They will not release a product until it has successfully passed all stages of our rigorous quality control process. They build, sell, and support the global market from our Portland, Maine headquarters to ensure the highest-quality output.

Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. All this is defined by a set of instructions programmed through the Arduino software. Arduino was born at the Ivrea Interaction Design Institute as an easy tool for fast prototyping, aimed at students without a background in electronics and programming. As soon as it reached a wider community, the Arduino board started changing to adapt to new needs and challenges, differentiating its offer from simple 8-bit boards to products for IoT applications, wearable, 3D printing, and embedded environments.

Aicas develops and markets JamaicaVM, a suite of development tools, runtimes and applicaiton frameworks for 32 bit and 64 bit multicore, embedded, safety critical and realtime applications. In addition, the company provides analysis and optimization tools that help developers improve application quality. Aicas provides customization services for JamaicaVM in order to meet the needs of its customers, especially in connection with various target environments. JamaicaVM is unique in its market segment: it is the only Java implementation with a full deterministic Garbage Collector for hard realtime applications. Aicas serves the aerospace, industrial control, instrumentation, and automotive markets. Its customer list includes Harman International, Boeing, EADS Astrium, EADS Military Air Systems, Honeywell, Siemens, and many others. The company's headquarters are in Karlsruhe, Germany, with subsidiary offices in the USA, France and Japan. In addition, aicas has reseller relationships with a group of highly qualified companies in Europe and Asia. Year Founded: 2001

Invixium Access is a biometric solutions manufacturer focused on providing next generation, exquisitely designed and high-quality products for the industrial/enterprise access control, time & attendance and smart home markets. Invixium Biometrics products are Made in Canada. Invixium Identity provides effective identity Assurance solutions globally.

Bedrock Automation has developed the next generation Industrial Control System with a revolutionary electromagnetic backplane architecture and deeply embedded cyber security for the highest levels of system performance, security and reliability at the lowest system cost. Bedrock started with a clean sheet of paper just a few years ago and re-imagined how a modern Industrial Control System should be designed: Simple Scalable Secure Year founded: 2013
IoT Solutions
Chirp's technology suite of interoperable standard SDKs works on many different technology platforms and they can develop custom SDKs for our partner's specific requirements. Powerful error correction and patent-pending decoder technology makes Chirp technology bulletproof. Why audio data encoding • Does not require an existing audio signal to operate on. • Encode and decode information in real-time, without external components • Good fit for compact, dynamic payloads - appropriate for creating network-like communication links between devices • Relatively high throughput making it suitable security-critical applications Developer friendly Easy to set up and integrate in an app or product.

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is an evolution of existing technologies that enables end users to improve processes, drive productivity, and maintain an edge in our increasingly competitive global economy. The IIoT requires technology that can solve the Interoperability challenges of device connectivity by reliably and securely delivering data across the public domain at a much larger scale than previously thought possible. Interoperability is currently the greatest challenge facing the Internet of Things (IoT), and may be the missing link to implementing and realizing the value of many IIoT deployments. Kepware’s industry-leading communications platform, KEPServerEX, delivers the most complete solution for device-to-cloud Interoperability. KEPServerEX provides a single integrated platform for collecting, aggregating, and providing secure access to your industrial operations data. KEPServerEX is evolving with the IIoT to support platform independence and new methods of data access—including support for web-based technologies and publish/subscribe messaging protocols. Kepware is developing these solutions to help the IIoT deliver on its promise of improved operational efficiency through applications like preventative maintenance, energy monitoring, product lifecycle insights, and global production Tracking.
