Complexity of data acquisition and production test systems have reached an all time high. Just a few years back, Companies playing in this domain would exist by focusing their skills in creating LabVIEW/TestStand based applications and integrating them with off-the-shelf instrumentation. These days are long gone. With Industry 4.0 knocking at our doors, data acquisition projects became a complex, multi-disciplinary affair.
As we prepare for the time when Industry 4.0 will be ubiquitous, only companies that always lived in the bleeding-edge of technology are the ones that can add real value to their clients. These companies understand the business challenges of creating such systems, and how to implement systems that generate more than just data, but business insight through information. TSXperts prides itself in being in the forefront of this movement.
Our services range from business analysis of our customers problems, through the architecture of embedded data acquisition and test systems that are well aligned to aggregated databases; web applications for data mining and visualization; to ultimately the implementation of Artificial Intelligence algorithms over the acquired data for business insights. Moreover, we deep Project Management skills and thousands of hours of combined experience in managing extremely complex, multi-disciplined, distributed systems. and understand the business of test and measurements are the ones who maximize the business value of the application being developed for the client.
LabVIEW was certainly embraced as the programming environment of choice for test and measurements. LabVIEW also offers packages for the creation of full-fledged embedded applications. More than being experts in LabVIEW Real Time, LabVIEW FPGA and the cRIO technology; the highest value add service providers do understand the common pitfalls of embedded applications and design the embedded system architecture in the best way to avoid those roadblocks, while taking the most out of the off the shelf tools available. TSXperts was the originator of and provided Software development for the creation of a compiler product that allows LabVIEW to be compiled for and run embedded in Arduino compatible targets. We are also on the forefront of the development of a similar product allowing LabVIEW to be compiled for and run embedded in Raspberry Pi targets. We not only use the latest tools available in the creation of Test and Measurements embedded applications, we also develop cutting edge programming tools to be used by others in the creation of Test and Measurements embedded applications.
Consultants who are experienced Project Managers will always make sure they are executing tasks in a way that will be better integrated into the overall project as they understand the challenges of managing a test and measurements project. Even if we are not engaged to manage the entire project for the client, though we believe we add the most value on that type of engagement, and are hired to execute specific engineering activities, the odds for overall project success are increased by having engineers who are also experts in managing test and measurements projects.
Insight Through Artificial Intelligence
The world is reaching a point where Artificial Intelligence is quickly becoming ubiquitous. The volume of data being collected by data acquisition systems has reached an all time high. To the point of a new term be coined in the Industry: Big Data. However, data is only as good as how much information can be extracted from it. And information is only as good as how much business insight it can reveal. Extremely high volume of data brings an immediate challenge versus their lower-volume counterpart of the recent past; which is the virtual impossibility for such information to be manually extracted. There is where Artificial Intelligence comes in! TSXperts has vast experience with both Machine Learning and the so called hard AI problems.
