DEVICES THAT SEE, FEEL AND HEAR ITS SURROUNDINGS
For businesses, tracking their assets brings huge advantages on the logistics and operations side. But every asset is different and needs to transmit different types of information and data. Through IoT solutions is possible for things to have a conscience.
We were asked to come up with a solution for a family of devices that could meet different use scenarios, from the most common and basic to the most distinct and complex, all based on the technology provided by Loka.
With specific use scenarios in mind, we designed two powerful devices, Orbis and Axon, both prepared to fit different assets and be efficient in extreme conditions. Orbis is a solution for the most common uses and Axon, due to its expandable capability, is a device that can be tailor made.
FORM FACTOR THROUGH PROTOTYPES
During the design process, all the ideas were tested with prototypes to ensure a perfect match for the electronics developed by LOKA's engineering team. Also, prototypes were crucial to establish a common visual language between the two devices.
This device was designed to be the most standard asset tracker. The goal was to have a product that could adapt to LOKA’s clients’ needs. It gives assets the capability to see, feel and hear its surroundings, with geofencing capabilities indoor and outdoor.
The most expandable device of LOKA. It was thought to facilitate the connection with other sensors while remains tough in demanding situations. It will transmit impulses to the LOKA’s IoT Cloud platform. With 3 AA batteries it has more battery life and includes sensors for geolocation, temperature, movement.
DESIGN WITH CONTEXT IN MIND
Both devices will be used in different contexts and under different conditions.
We anticipated the most common use scenarios to develop different options for handling and fixing the devices.
