Data Engineering

We support in the conceptualization and implementation of data warehouse and data lake projects, oversee ETL and data transformation processes, build Big Data and cloud architectures, and are established database experts.

Data Science

We design custom solutions for data pre-processing, advanced analytics, and machine learning. A solid background in data science—from regular analytical discovery to statistical modeling—enables us to deliver robust architectures for IoT data analytics.

Internet of Things

Building on long-standing expertise in classic data analytics, we leverage your existing data landscape to raise the value of your IoT case. Using competencies in building container cloud architectures with microservices, we implement scalable IoT in industrial contexts.

ABOUT US

We Stand for Better Insight

We are a multi-skilled team of experts in data science and IoT consulting, machine learning, app development, data warehouse construction, IoT architectures, predictive maintenance, and software development. 

We consult on the entire spectrum of data science and IoT from statistical methodology to technology architectures. Combining extensive end-to-end know-how and long-standing project expertise, we distinguish ourselves through our agile working methodology. 

With the joined forces of data science and IoT, we not only push the boundaries of existing outcomes but also craft a vision on how to design and implement future enterprise processes.

OUR CORE AREAS

Expertise and Specialities

Our end-to-end IoT and data science consulting approach encompasses tools, technologies, statistics, and business contexts. We support you in assembling an analytical team and evaluating your current data infrastructure. Then we roll up our sleeves to create a long-term outcome. Our emphasis on both tools and infrastructure makes for integrated, sustainable results.

 

IoT Infrastructures

Strategy consulting and implementation of sensor data collection and IoT device management projects tailored to customer needs.

Data Warehousing & BI

Using different approaches involving NoSQL, RDBMS, and Event Sourcing, we advise on the development of tailor-made data lakes and data warehouses.

Data Mining & ML

We support in predictive analytics, detecting abnormal behaviour, and finding hidden patterns in your data with anomaly detection & predictive maintenance.

Industrial UI Design

IoT often starts with the modernization of your machine software. This often involves visualizing machine data using the appropriate user interface.

Deep Learning

We train neural networks and adapt the trained model while advising on the suitable IoT application, neural network configuration, and the selection of compute resources.

Big Data & IoT

Big Data & IoT in Product Development

Noise detection for the determination of interference signals

In this project with a large automotive supplier, conclusions about the causes of certain product properties were to be determined on the basis of large quantities of measurement data using statistical methods.

One focus was the automated and reliable detection of specific noises (vibrations) from sound tracks/vibration pickups, which had a large number of interfering signals.

Another focus was the root cause analysis and prediction of these noises based on the additionally detected more than 40 sensor tracks. In order to provide the necessary data volumes, this project developed and implemented a prototypical IoT architecture for the collection of real-time sensor data from vehicles in a cloud-based data store. Only open-source technologies were used.

Risk ANalysis

A Platform for Risk Analysis

Integration of source data systems for efficient evaluation

Kundenprojekte - Risikoanalyse bei ParcIT

In one of our projects, we set up a comprehensive risk analysis platform for the approximately 1,100 German Volksbanken and Raiffeisenbanken in parcIT GmbH

Several source data systems were integrated and cleaned up for efficient evaluation. In addition, various classes of analyses were prepared, including calibration and selectivity of classification procedures, default correlation and migration analyses.

We have successfully used open-source software and customized hardware as our technical basis.

UI Solutions

Modern Industrial UI for Optical Metrology

User-centric UI for the intuitive and seamless operation of optical distance and thickness measurements

IoT and data science consulting: visualizing optical sensor data

Working with end users, we developed a new customer-centric UI that is so simple and intuitive that you do not need to read any operations manual. 

Precitec manufactures sensors for optical distance and thickness measurement. A sensor consists of an optical probe head and a spectrometer. Our goal was to develop an elegant, easy-to-use, and human-centered user interface that allows users to configure the spectrometer fast and visualise the measurement data in an appealing and simple manner. 

Record Evolution used state-of-the-art UX paradigms and the latest web technologies to develop a new modern UI.

With the help of Design Thinking and the definition of dedicated end-user personas, we created three user journeys for different kinds of usage of the applications. Depending on the expert level, the user can see less or more complex configuration options; the expert mode with a command-line interface allows for full control over the device. The setup and configuration process of new measurement devices was simplified with guided wizards and preset smart values.

This user-friendly software helps customers to distribute “ready-to-use” devices that the end user can use directly without further training, which reduces support time. The attractive clean look helps sales representatives during demonstrations of the devices to customers and during trade shows.

Networked Mobility: New Approaches to Human-machine Interaction in Industrial UI

An integrated cockpit display for a new driving experience in future mobility scenarios

Collaborating with different departments at Continental,  we co-developed a cockpit demonstrator. The interactive display solution covering the entire width of a vehicle’s cockpit offers an experience of full connectivity, paving the way towards safer and stress-free driving. 

Record Evolution worked on the development of a human-machine interface (HMI) using state-of-the-art connectivity technologies and modern web architectures. We established real-time connections between a multitude of functional components in the car such as self-shading windows, an AI assistant, door sensors, interior lighting, autonomous driving controls and more.

All these components were gesture-controlled by mobile phone or tablet as well as a large touch-sensitive dashboard HMI containing apps for many different use cases. 

Our developers created a framework for the integration of various apps and implemented a video player, a music application, navigation, email and weather services in addition to the essential driving controls such as rear-view mirror video, speedometer and fuel/fuel gauge. The implemented connectivity solutions and modular app structure contributed to the display’s unique look & feel.  

The display demonstrator operates in two modes: In automated driving mode, the display extends to its fullest capacity to serve as a customizable infotainment hub for both driver and passengers. In manual driving mode, half of the screen disappears into the cockpit and all apps smoothly adapt to the new screen format so that the driver can focus on the driving experience.

The integrated cockpit display was one of Continental’s highlight exhibits during the Frankfurt Motor Show IAA 2019, allowing visitors to board the cockpit and freely interact with the innovative solution within a driving simulator.
