SSOFB - Web Development with Open Source in Aberdeen, Scotland

Affordable embedded devices are getting more and more cost effective, even more so if the operating system is zero-cost. We've worked on development of several web or media based custom devices for clients. 

Xubuntu and Atom

Typical applications include:

  • Touch-screen kiosks
  • Large information displays
  • Real time analytics dashbaords
  • Sensor systems
  • Photo and/or video capture and analysis

Hardware platforms we've worked with:

  • Raspberry Pi
  • Odroid U3+
  • Odroid XU4
  • Odroid C1+
  • AMD Geode
  • Intel Atom

Operating systems we've worked with:

  • Lubuntu
  • Xubunu
  • Android
  • RTLinux

The customisable nature of Linux makes it ideal for these devices, as whatever the user scenario, it can be tweaked to be the perfect fit. For applications like point-of-sale, customer service data collection, multimedia display or rich media information points we can provide the ideal software solution.

This is often refered to as the internet of things (IoT), small, cheap, ubiquitous devices, always connected providing one of more services.
