How it Works
TILT IT is a small sensor that can be attached to a product as a tag or attached to the surface of the product. TILT IT is a motion sensor, and when attached to a product it tracks customer engagement through motion.
TILT IT consists of two hardware components, sensors (tags) and the hub to which sensors communicate. To tackle the business requirement we needed a sensor that has an ultra low power consumption and a considerable amount of communication range to communicate with the hub. Our R&D efforts were focused on solving these 2 factors and we finally came up with a sensor powered by bluetooth low energy. As the power source CR2032 coin cell battery is used. The in-built accelerometer detects motion and sends signals to the hub. With these characteristics, sensor lasts up to 8 months or 4000 interaction detections.
The hub collects data from sensors and sends to the cloud based analytics panel. The hub consists of both bluetooth for sensor communication and WiFi for cloud based communication. The firmware makes sure that data is sent to the server with maximum reliability through local caching implementation.
The TILT IT analytics panel helps the merchant to make sense of the engagement data collected by sensors. Combining our software development and data analytics capabilities, TILT IT analytics panel has been developed to generate actionable metrics through raw sensor data.
