Prodrive technologies is a developer and manufacturer of world-class electronics. It comprises over 900 employees and is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe.
Our organization is based on two groups: Development and Operations. The Development department is oriented at developing first-rate electronic, mechanic and software solutions. The operations department is responsible for production, assembly, testing and life-cycle-management of electronic products and systems in the range of 1 to more than a million pieces per year.
Currently, Prodrive is developing an IoT Cloud for asset management. The assets are divided in two groups. Mobile assets like forklifts or agriculture equipment and fixed assets link industrial machinery. We supply these assets with a gateway that send the data over the mobile network to the IoT Cloud. We are responsible for the complete chain, starting from collecting data in the asset, transporting it over the mobile network (world-wide), storing the data in the Cloud and providing an API for retrieving the data. For the Cloud we use AWS from Amazon.
Setting up the architecture for the IoT Cloud based on AWS. Specifying the API with the gateways and the private API to our customers. Implementing this including architecture including security functionality. This includes all the communication between gateway and customer API. The data is only stored in the IoT Cloud and not processed. All the business logic and presentation functionality is in the customer Cloud.
There are only few companies in the world of technology which stand out. Prodrive Technologies is one of them. Our company was founded in 1993 by technical professionals from the Eindhoven University of Technology. Since then every year has shown a steep growth rate due to a very successful business concept in a relatively young organization (average age 28 years). Currently the total Prodrive Technologies organization consists of 900 highly skilled employees (770 FTE), who are motivated, focused and result oriented of which more than 400 engineers work in development.
