INTRODUCING THE RECORD EVOLUTION REFLASHER

Flash Multiple Devices at Once

At Record Evolution, we want to make the flashing process as simple as possible, universally available, and operating on any platform. So we developed a custom tool that radically simplifies that process. The Record Evolution Reflasher is a cross-platform desktop application that helps you create bootable configured flash drives ready to use on any device. 

To connect devices and get started on your IoT project, all you need is an internet connection and a Docker-capable device.

INTRODUCING OUR CUSTOM OS

Lightweight Operating System for IoT Devices

ReswarmOS is our customizable operating system for embedded IoT devices specifically designed in-house to meet the requirements of our IoT development studio. ReswarmOS is a configurable and lightweight Linux-based OS that can run on very small devices with low resource consumption, fast flashing and quick startup times. A lightweight custom agent controls all apps and Docker containers.

And since our focus is security, you benefit from an industry-standard authentication method between the development platform and the IoT device. Each device receives an individual username & password on the basis of the configuration file so that it cannot be tampered with locally.

Why a Custom OS?

IOT DEVICES AT A GLANCE

Connect Any Device or IPC

To enable IoT on a range of machines and legacy equipment, the Record Evolution platform works with Docker-capable devices. Below is a selection of devices you can connect to the platform based on your use case.

Raspberry Pi 4

Raspberry Pi 4

We use this classic as an R&D device, for getting started on a pilot project, for an initial PoC, or as a development device for your apps. It comes with enormous community support. And the platform continues to work with its predecessor, Raspberry Pi 3.

Getting Started

Case Studies

You connect IoT devices using any communication protocol and your local wireless network. And then you get to the truly creative part of IoT development. Record Evolution is not simply an IoT platform for connectivity and device management but also a place to gather and analyze device data, develop your own IoT products, build edge computing cases that extend all the way to the cloud, orchestrate IoT deployment scenarios, or even create your own IoT application ecoystem. Starting with just one connected device, you build the foundation for new IoT technology.

Use Case: Reading and Visualizing IoT Sensor Data

Use Case: Reading and Visualizing IoT Sensor Data

We connect a Precitec device to the platform and install an IoT app on it to read out and visualize IoT sensor data.
