iot concept at a glance

Everyday objects are being connected to the Internet so they are able to identify themselves to other devices to make themselves visible and remotely controllable. Consequently, any object that can digitally represent itself becomes something greater than the object by itself.

Internet of Things (IoT) is all about connecting objects to the Internet in order to collect and exchange valuable data so that new value opportunities are created in every business sector. The basic concepts behind the IoT initiative involve a big amount of devices that are already operating or will soon be ready in the world, and that those decvices are connected to the Internet to facilitate data exchange to drive visualization, optimization and autonomy of those devices.

elite sistemas' solutions are focused on enabling those devices to:

  • - sistematically gather and analyze data from local sensors and machines;
  • - obtain valuable information from multisensor environments;
  • - and connect to any upper level system, cloud based or installed in a “local” server, so they can unleash their potential by sharing valuable information to take better decisions or being remotely controlled. 


elite sistemas contribution: IOT2000® industrial nanogateway platform

Designed with one of the smallest footprint of the market (3.9 x 4.5 cm), the elite sistemas IOT2000® module includes two application ready low-power, battery-operable, 32-bit microcontrollers, GPRS cellular data and WiFi, and increased input/output options for industrial applications.

Designed to be installed in the most demanding environments (industrial, farmlands, onboard), the IOT2000® module and application boards are qualified over an industrial temperature range (-40 °C to +85 °C).

The elite sistemas IOT2000® module is the first dual asymmetric core module for real-time industrial IoT applications powered by Intel® Quark™ microcontroller D2000 and Espressif ESP8266 EX cores.
