DataArt Partners with Espressif to Deliver Complete IoT Solutions
IoT Now picks up the announcement of DataArt’s partnership with Espressif, a provider of ESP8266 and ESP32 chips that are used to add internet connectivity to devices. DataArt developed a custom DeviceHive firmware for Espressif’s ESP8266 chips that enables zero-configuration networking, supports a wide range of popular sensor devices and ensures direct connection with DeviceHive cloud service.
“DataArt develops and commercially supports an open source IoT data platform DeviceHive that provides the infrastructure for building scalable and secure IoT solutions across a number of industries including automotive, utilities and smart environments.
As a result of the partnership DataArt developed a custom DeviceHive firmware for ESP8266 chips, that enables zero-configuration networking, supports a wide range of popular sensor devices out of the box and allows the building of local web page enabled devices. The new firmware also ensures direct connection with DeviceHive cloud service, bypassing additional gateway devices and providing a foundation for DeviceHive-ready hardware.
‘The partnership with Espressif enhances our ability to provide powerful, innovative, scalable and cost-effective IoT solutions to our clients.’ said Igor Ilunin, head of the IoT Practice at DataArt. 'We’re looking forward to close collaboration in our future projects.'”
