Prodrive Technologies is a developer and manufacturer of world-class electronics. It comprises over 1100 employees and is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe.

The operations department is responsible for production, assembly, testing and life-cycle-management of electronic products and systems in the range of 1 to more than a million pieces per year.

Currently, Prodrive is developing an IoT Cloud for asset management. The assets are divided in two groups. Mobile assets like forklifts or agriculture equipment and fixed assets link industrial machinery. We supply these assets with a gateway that send the data over the mobile network to the IoT Cloud. We are responsible for the complete chain, starting from collecting data in the asset, transporting it over the mobile network (world-wide), storing the data in the Cloud and providing an API for retrieving the data. For the Cloud we use AWS from Amazon.


Setting up the architecture for the IoT Cloud based on AWS. Specifying the API with the gateways and the private API to our customers. Implementing this including architecture including security functionality. This includes all the communication between gateway and customer API. The data is only stored in the IoT Cloud and not processed. All the business logic and presentation functionality is in the customer Cloud.
