SophiaConf 2018 - L. Martinot (Key infuser)

  1. 1. IOT: from a Prototype to a Product Lidwine Martinot
  2. 2. Outer shell: Model it: Blender, sketchup Do it: “Tôlerie plastique”(folded plastic) Cheap small CNC 3D printer HW: Raspberry Pi, Beagle Bone, Arduino Breadboards Adafruit! SW: Linux OpenCV, ROS, Qt Stack Overflow! Prototyping: Easy Peasy?
  3. 3. • There is no limit! • Add a Fingerprint Scanner to Your Garage Door Opener • Keep Your Cats away from Furniture with a Auto-Trigger Spray Gun (!) • Mute Any Phrase You Want on Your TV https://lifehacker.com/top-10-kickass-arduino-projects-1747407543 How fancy can it be?
  4. 4. • Does the product solve an issue?: not the topic of today’s presentation but the hope is yes… • Look and feel, is my product attractive? – Will customers be more likely to buy my spray gun if it is made out of precious material and offered in various colors? • What about the legal aspects – Does my spray-gun have to be EMC compliant? – What if my product accidentally kills some cats • How reliable should my product be? – How long a warranty should I offer? • How to deploy it? • How to maintain it? • Etc etc etc Let’s make a product then!
  5. 5. KiOne as an example
  6. 6. The outer shell
  7. 7. First prototype We thought we had a product Now we do
  8. 8. • Choose a designer who also has some ideas about the functional aspects: – How to insert the lock – How to insert motors and LEDs in the robot • Our designer also made choices for the prototype but they had to be reviewed mainly for cost reduction: – Price of material – Redesign to reduce processing costs Challenges
  9. 9. • Choice of material: – Aspect, properties (eg: in contact with water, sun ?), price, durability, not independent from techno used to put it in shape – Even with plastics: PA6, ABS, PC, .. • Techno: – Usinage, resin mould, injection moulding, 3D printing, thermoformage… – Usinage: can we use a single-size drill? – 3D printing: which aspect, “frittage”? Painted? – Soft mould: up to 20 pieces – Injection mould: infinite pieces • but pricy to design and build the mould • Needs a redesign of what has to be moulded • Need to be sure not to have to change our model! • Excel and Castorama have become a friends…. • Not just one set of techno/materials: one for small to medium series and start from a blank sheet for bigger series Challenges Essai medium et peinture carrosserie
  10. 10. http://www.resines-et-moulages.com Productization: Injection Moulding • More new vocabulary: dépouille, contre-dépouille Mould-able? Yes ? No ?
  11. 11. « Les dépouilles doivent être d’au moins 0,5° pour éviter tout stress à l’éjection de la pièce. Le plastique injecté suit le chemin le moins contraignant lorsqu’il entre dans le moule, donc la matière doit pénétrer dans la partie où la section est la plus épaisse et finir dans les plus fines. Pour un meilleur résultat, l’épaisseur de paroi est uniforme ou varie de moins de 10 %. » Productization: Know your limits http://eduscol.education.fr/sti/sites/eduscol.education.fr.sti/files/ressources/techniques/4721/4721-185-p30.pdf Moulding a pedal: We need a specialist!
  12. 12. The Hardware (Electronics)
  13. 13. First tests Next phase: ”higher”quality Dedicated board
  14. 14. Challenges• For a product requiring a radio: – For the prototype: doesn’t matter as long as it doesn’t prevent from making a demo. WiFi + tethering on a phone is good enough for example – For the product: Which technology? • Depends on the coverage vs customers targeted • What is the cost of the radio chipset? • Can we easily find boards which integrate it already? Are they certified? • What about subscription fees? https://raed.it/blog/iot-network-sigfox-vs-lora/
  15. 15. Reliability • Reliability: be “agile” – Our test bench showed a huge variation in lifetime for the 1st set of motors we had selected: • How long do they have to last? • How much does it cost to have someone intervene for changing parts every year? • Eventually: we selected new winners – Never seen before failure during the Vivatech event in 2017, after they had issues with the AC: • Had to change a component on the card • It’s hard for a small company to simulate all possible environments the products will be in: take some risks • Certifications: country-dependent
  16. 16. Cost • Cost reduction effort – Initially: flexibility on the board – Once fully tested: fix the HW design – More optimization: choice of components • For productization we again decided to go in 2 phases: – small/medium series before a bigger cost-reduction effort for bigger volumes
  17. 17. The Software
  18. 18. The robot can play a demo Failure rate:10-1 Next phase: SW redesigned to be more stable but also to ease the dev of new demos Failure rate: 10-2 Nirvana!
  19. 19. Challenges • Reliability… again – Initially: failed to start once every 10 On/Off: we don’t even pay attention to such things on a proto! – Then… freeze once every 2 weeks: ok or not? No • Addicted to Stack Overflow, and one day, you become a contributor! – There is always someone who has had the same issue. Amazing, but as the issue becomes tricky… – There is not always an answer provided! • Increased Expertise for a more reliable product: – Need to manage your own Linux image ? (build root dark side)
  20. 20. SCM and Maintenance • SW Configuration Maintenance: which version is where? Which one needs which upgrade? – Too obvious to mention it? Even for a prototype SCM is a must – But: can’t afford a QA team from the very beginning • OTA Update: – Another side of SW: the maintenance server
  21. 21. • Maintenance on a prototype: – drive to the customer’s, fix it • Needless to say… doesn’t apply to the product
  22. 22. Deployment, transportation
  23. 23. Software engineers building this
  24. 24. • We haven’t been reading the user manual to build that box, don’t expect our customers to read it to use our product… • Lesson learned: Make it simple for them to use • And now we have to productize the packaging  Challenges
  25. 25. And one day…
  26. 26. First Product to our First Customer
  27. 27. • KiOne is a tough product to productize but some of our challenges apply to any IOT device • Have fun, don’t hesitate to make a prototype • Don’t wait for the perfect product to start exposing it • Yet…. It’s easy to underestimate the efforts to go from a prototype to a product, even when we think we know! To conclude
