Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, startup Atom Power makes solid-state circuit breakers for commercial and industrial building markets. They approached us with a clear brief:
At 8 seconds, the reaction time of the circuit breaker to the tablet/phone app was far too long. They knew there was a problem with the code which was causing the delay, but they were struggling to find developers with the skillset to identify inefficiencies in their code and to fix it.
The Aspiring Panda development team worked night shifts in order to align with Atom Power’s time zone. Our developers analysed Atom Power’s app code, identified inefficiencies and cleaned the app’s code. For IOT it is integral that code is clean to ensure that software is running as indended and to reduce the risk of oversights.
8 seconds -> 4 milliseconds
Our coders managed to clean up the code and cut the delay to 4 milliseconds. This meant that the circuit breakers could work in real-time, improving the capabilities of their IOT device and experience for the user. Atom Power’s intelligent product suite has gone on to become the fastest power distribution system ever. They most recently received investment from Siemens.
"Since its founding in 2014, Atom Power has successfully created
one of the world’s first commercially viable solid-state circuit breakers
for the commercial and industrial building markets."
