December 3 2017: As a child I remember watching the Jetsons, a cartoon show for kids that showed futuristic home with robotics and connected appliance in space. Thanks to the Internet-of-Things-fueled innovation of companies like Smartron, our homes may soon get closer to what the Jetsons had. Their flagship tool is an Artificial Intelligence powered IoT platform, tronX. Smartron is also developing a voice powered virtual assistant that understand Indian-accent English plus other regional languages.
Smartron’s home-built next gen OS, is also designed to seamlessly work with major operating system platforms like Android or Windows. Smartron also announced their plans to introduce the newly launched Qualcomm Mesh Networking platform for IoT connected devices. The Mesh Wi-Fi platform from Smartron, features the Qualcomm Mesh Networking Platform, which includes the Qualcomm Wi-Fi SON (Self Organising Network) Feature suite, that is designed to ensures corner to corner Wi-Fi coverage in the house, the Qualcomm IoT Connectivity Feature Suite that supports multiple IOT communication protocols for virtually seamless onboarding and control of a wider range of IoT devices. It will also enable partner- OEMs to develop next generation products with cutting edge features
In their Hyderabad HQ, Smartron has showcased a few 'homely' applications of tronX: a facial recognition feature unlocks the door; a sensor gauges the level inside your cooking gas cylinder
Says Smartron founder Mahesh Lingareddy, “tronX is an intelligent platform that is customized for India."
Already tronX tells the time, predicts weather, and controls half a dozen IoT devices. Once there is a critical mass of such apps, tronX will be ready to move in to your home and talk to you.
