A Hyderabad-based developer has created an Indian platform where Artificial Intelligence meets the Internet of Things, to make your life simpler.
Hyderabad, August 28 2017: Indian technology products company, Smartron, has made a bold claim to fame. During a media tour of its Hyderabad facility last week, it unveiled tronX -- claimed to be the world's first 'intelligent ecosystem' that connects a range of devices, sensors & systems to a central core and offers intelligent experiences and services targeting personal, home, health and infrastructure verticals -- for starters.
tronX as it is called, is the 'brain outside the body', an intelligent system that does your thinking for you. With a wealth of data at its disposal, it can foresee events and offer appropriate suggestions. From controlling the air conditioning in your home to controlling temperature in a greenhouse, to triggering a suggestion for a visit your doctor, tronX does everything ...sometimes even without asking. You go to a supermarket or retail store and a system there, recognises your facial features from a previous visit and automatically suggests your shopping list based on your past preference.
tronX not only gathers data from various devices but also exchanges data between them. And some of the Smartron devices, launched in India over the past year, are already serving as nodes on a tronX platform. The t·phone mobile connects with the AC, to monitor power consumption. The t·band wearabl, connects with the t·bike to monitor the miles covered. At the other end of the scale, tronX hopes to run civic infrastructure more efficiently, with little or no human intervention.
Currently tronX is being deployed in 4 verticals:
tronX Personal offers personalised and localized entertainment, travel, shopping, financial or health tools across personal devices.
tronX Health monitors and manages medical history, insurance data and preventive solutions from a range of partners in the health space.
tronX Home is a smart home offering that helps control locking mechanisms, security updates, home appliances, services like water, electricity and payment modules through a voice assistant.
tronX Infra is an AI assisted system that covers a range of management services like security, lighting, climate, tracking and connectivity for buildings, retail, warehouses, cold storage, trucking, logistics etc.
Says Smartron's founder-Chairman, Mahesh Lingaredy: “tronX is a kind of next generation OS designed to run seamlessly across wide range of devices, sensors, vehicles and systems, delivering highly intelligent and localized experiences, services and care support critical to IOT success. We are opening up this very Indian ecosystem to our partners who are helping us in delivering innovative hardware and software solutions.”
