Wireless Charging of Smartphones
Our client is a major global brand that manufactures laminates and laminated tabletops. It’s latest product offering is a tabletop with embedded Wireless Power Transmitters (WPTs) for wireless charging of smartphones. They were looking to connect the WPTs to the internet so they could remotely monitor and manage them, as well as generate actionable insights through analysis of usage data.
Bridgera built an end to end connected solution using our device simulation engine: Bridgera Digital Twin. Based on the success of the simulation model, the client ordered a Wi-Fi module to be added to the existing WPT design for connectivity. Bridgera built the firmware to enable the Wifi module to communicate with the rest of the WPT hardware and with the Bridgera IoT platform in the cloud, which then interpreted and processed the WPT data for the client’s business purposes. The connected solution not only allowed the customer to remotely monitor and manage the devices in the field but also delivered business insights by running Analytics on the data collected from the devices.
