Successfully complete the UX (User Experience) of your connected object
A well-thought-out user experience is critical to the success of your connected object! It seems that this aspect is somewhat forgotten by the designers. Indeed, according to statistics more than one third of connected objects are abandoned by their users in the first 6 months of use. For example, the choice of materials depends on the user experience. If the object is a sports connected bracelet intended for cyclists but also for swimmers, it will be necessary to think about the waterproofness of the materials. This seems obvious, but many companies are taking these issues into account very late in the design of their device thus losing time and money. Anthémis technologies masters the different aspects of the user experience, including UX in the IOT. We will ensure a pleasant ergonomics and a pleasure of use of your connected object.
Successfully complete the user interface of your connected object
A well thought out user interface of a connected object is essential. When creating a new connected product, the screen issue quickly arrives on the carpet. It can be integrated directly into the product or transferred to the smartphone, which will then control the device via a dedicated application. The object can also be directed without a screen thanks to the voice, the gesture or with the help of simple buttons. Anthemis Technologies can offer you all these types of user interfaces: from the creation of an application dedicated to gesture control we master all these technologies to succeed the user interface of your future connected object.

Choosing the right communication network
Using the right communication network to circulate information is fundamental!
For the communication of connected objects, there are two camps: the energy-hungry equipment, which must send and receive their data by Wi-Fi or GSM. And more energy-hungry objects, mostly idle, that need to transmit a very small amount of information per day. For this last type of object, specific low-speed long-range networks have been created (Sigfox, LoRa).
The final choice of a network will depend on several criteria. Anthemis Technologies masters all these types of technologies and will be able to advise you and set up your communication network for your project.
Optimize the energy source of your connected object
Rare are the connected objects constantly connected to the mains. For Anthemis Technologies, the issue of power supply for connected products is essential. A device that only wakes up once a day to send some data does not have the same needs as a connected watch.
The source of energy chosen is the element that weighs the most on the design of smart objects, it is a real source of physical bulk.
The user of the connected object should understand how the device works. This goes through a simple design. Connected objects that work best do one thing but just do it! The user manual is almost to ban. The trap to avoid: launch a device that wants to do too many things and whose use is not easy for the customer.
