2019: A Year of Empowering Things in Realtime

18 Dec 2019

In 2019, aicas built on what we've learned from customers using our legacy products and laid the groundwork to introduce new products and services to deliver the full power of the IoT deeper into a range of industries, from telco and industrial, to automotive and more.

As IoT use cases expanded, aicas too broadened our portfolio of solutions at an embedded application level, and at a global level expanded our work within trade and industry organizations to continue guiding industries with leadership standards and more.

2019 was an exciting year for aicas, as we developed distribution partnerships and watched our licensed product usage grow by millions.

 

December

To meet the Israeli tech industry's need for embedded tools with critical, realtime capabilities, We partnered with regional tech and services provider ITEC, Ltd who will provide regional pre- and post-technical sales support for aicas' JamaicaVM.


Together with France-based ISIT, Ltd. we're accelerating distribution of our embedded real-time solutions to customers in Western Europe. This partnership opens access to our tools for commercial application development across the region.


At Amazon Web Services' annual re:Invent conference in Las Vegas, we participated alongside IoT and Cloud innovators to explore the impactful ways businesses are being guided through architecture and connected security solutions.

 

November

To accelerate development of Industry 4.0, and improve our ability to support the IoT initiative in the OSGi Alliance, aicas upgraded its OSGiTM Alliance membership to Principal Member IoT bridges the gap between Information Technology (OT) and Operational Technology (OT) systems, and the aicas team brings its experience with Realtime JavaTM to the OSGi Alliance and its standards.

 

October

Together with AASA and LHP Engineering Solutions, aicas GmbH we demonstrated the solution for realtime security against connected cyber attacks. The first-of-a-kind solution for realtime detection and mitigation of cyber intrusions and vehicle-to-vehicle data sharing, was introduced at IoT Solutions World Congress 2019 in Barcelona.


aicas is leading Java into Industry 4.0. The Java Community Process Group accepted our revised and updated guidelines for continued Java-based IoT realtime development. Some 25 years after this programming language became the network computing building blocks, our update was accepted as a refinement of semantics, scheduling, synchronization, memory management, and more, which speak directly to IoT development.


At the OSGi Community event during eclipsecon Europe in Ludwisburg, we explored the problems with realtime sensor data processing and actuator control that are arising at the edge of IoT systems. We outlined expanded OSGi as a solution for online updatability, composition and application reconfigurability in terms of realtime Java's ability to standardize programmability layers for applications with strict execution and performance requirements.

 

June

We partnered with Klika Tech for an exhibition and presentation on intelligent vehicle solutions at the Embedded Tech Expo & Conference, in San Jose, CA, taking time to discuss tech trends and the future of embedded systems and Industrial IoT.


At TU Automotive in Detroit, aicas was among the leaders discussing the future of auto tech and innovation at this event in the heart of Motor City. We delivered a first-hand perspective on the latest connected and autonomous car strategies and the hardware and software needed to manage new products and services

 

May

At the IoT World Conference in Santa Clara, CA, our leadership team led discussions on realtime technology and IoT solutions as driver of digital transformation for automotive and industrial operations.

 

 

April

We led a Realtime Edge Computing discussion at IoT Tech Expo in London with a focus on edge computing in realtime for a digital twin.


For Hannover Messe, we participated to highlight the power of Jamaica-IoT for over the air updates. We shared our experience in tailored embedded solutions to collect and monitor data from multiple sources and explored with attendees our vision for open standards for solutions to easily connect multiple edge devices, small boards and end-point sensors.

 

February

Together with Klika Tech we introduced a seamless integration of Amazon Alexa Auto and aicas realtime technology as a new standard for connected vehicle control. Introduced during our presentation at Embedded World 2019, the collaborative integration connected drivers through voice recognition and real-time information from the vehicle and the world around them.


We surpassed a 15 Million Licensed Applications milestone with JamaicaCAR– which by year's end climbed to 17 million Tier-1 automakers and suppliers relying on our technology as an integral component of connected cars.
