Innovating on Shepherd®
Shepherd® is not a "sandbox" or a "play ground" or anything really
where you can get lost in mindless games. We would rather that you
see Shepherd® as an arena for down to earth innovation in M2M; a
place where you can create solutions that you may previously have
thought unmanageable. You provide the nuts and bolts - we have the
To illustrate how this is possible, we have set up three possible
entry points - or key holes if you will - to innovating on
Shepherd®: depending on whether your competence is in application
development, hardware or device engineering or system integration.
Viewing Shepherd from either of these angles you will find great
benefits when creating complete market solutions.
Take a look at what we did with an electric motor bike
Getting an electric motor bike on-line with sensors and
GPS is not as complicated as it sounds. That is - if you
work with people who know what they are doing! In this
case we had the pleasure of working with Robert Engels in ESIS
Norge and students from UNIK.
And the result? A solution for monitoring a bike on the
So, what do you need to get
• An idea that you strongly believe in and want
• Some knowledge in software development, system
integration or hardware engineering
• An innovation agreement that regulates use of
Shepherd® (no strings attached)
• A device (a mobile phone should do it at
first) or two?
So far, so good? OK - now take a look at our documentation.
