Our partners Digital Matter have won the 2021 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award by IoT Evolution World for their latest indoor/outdoor battery-powered asset tracking solution, the Yabby Edge. The award recognises the best and most innovative products and solutions powering the Internet of Things.
Available in Cellular LTE-M / NB-IoT or LoRaWAN® versions, the Yabby Edge features up to 12 years of battery life on user-replaceable AAA batteries and utilises GNSS Scanning (GPS and BeiDou), Wi-Fi AP MAC Address Scanning, and Cell Tower or LoRaWAN® geolocation fallback to provide continuous location tracking, traceability, loss/theft prevention, and movement/impact detection of assets in both indoor and outdoor environments.
New to the Yabby Edge is cloud-based location solving. Where most existing asset tracking devices handle the location processing workload on-device, the Yabby Edge utilises cloud-based location calculations and advanced data enrichment services to substantially reduce power consumption. Location Engine is a new module in Digital Matter’s Device Management Server, that simplifies this cloud-based position solving and allows users to integrate device data into any IoT platform or asset tracking system quickly.
“We are thrilled to be recognised for our innovation on our battery-powered asset tracking solutions,” says Ken Everett, CEO and Founder, Digital Matter. “For many businesses, having to manually recharge or frequently change the batteries in their asset tracking hardware is not a viable option. With the Yabby Edge, we focused on a ‘deploy once’ design to decrease the total cost of device ownership for our partners, reducing the amount of time, costs, and resources required to manage successful large-scale asset tracking deployments in any environment.”
“The solutions selected for the IoT Evolution Product of Year Award reflect the diverse range of innovation driving the multi-billion-dollar IoT market today. It is my honour to congratulate Digital Matter for their innovative work and superior contribution to the rapidly evolving IoT industry,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC, a co-publisher of IoT Evolution.
