what/who

Combining the advancement in power + data integration with a unified open architecture platform, VEEDIMS IoT makes connecting “things” easy so they can be monitored, controlled and managed.

VEEDIMS IoT has proprietary and patented technologies (38 patents issued and pending) relating to the seamless integration of power and data within a single operating platform. VEEDIMS IoT supports manufacturers, integrators and developers with the tools they need to build “smart” assets with advanced IoT applications.

VEEDIMS IoT began with the vision of one man and one machine, an Iconic Roadster to be precise. Designed and built with a passion to reform old ways of wiring and managing power and data, a revolutionary integrated wiring harness with IoT electronic architecture was invented by Claudio Ballard and his team of automotive and electronic experts. This was the beginning of ONE single power + data Ethernet cable that would allow for a host of application-specific solutions to be remotely monitored, controlled and managed.

Today, VEEDIMS IoT is a solid company with a strong leadership team of Fortune 500 Executives from General Dynamics, BMW, Siemens, and OSIsoft who are partnering with businesses all over the world to help them drive down engineering, implementation, maintenance and operating costs.

VEEDIMS IoT is a customer-driven company, providing fully integrated IoT solutions for businesses that need to optimize, innovate, reduce costs and deliver new services.

VEEDIMS IoT technology fully supports encrypted communications between remote systems and/or devices, centralized enterprise level control and management systems while also delivering the electric power necessary to operate such remote systems and/or devices. Our platforms are designed with real-time data capture, cloud storage, and analytic abilities for advanced predictive and preventative maintenance.

We offer a unique, patented delivery system of power + data through a single cable. OEMs and ODMs realize the value of VEEDIMS IoT and the extensive reduction in wiring and cabling by 80%. Less cost on materials, increased space for other needs, less the overall weight of the asset are just some of the advantages of VEEDIMS IoT.

Our technology not only saves our customers time and money – Our technology is also saving our earth’s natural resources, and that is something we are very proud of!

Solutions

The combined benefits of VEEDIMS hardware and software solutions give you more energy efficiencies, advanced logic, enterprise cloud repository, and self-aware predictive analysis while lessening material costs, weight, space, long-term maintenance and operational costs.

MARINE

Faster, better, smarter is what more and more boat builders seek to achieve, and they know the only way to do this is with advanced hardware, software and IoT technologies.

 

VEEDIMS has been helping manufacturers improve efficiency, add functionality to their electronic systems, minimize system weight, and reduce installation costs by simplifying complex wiring systems with a ONE power + data cabling, “smart” hardware, and sophisticated software, thereby drastically reducing weight and costs (labor, material, and maintenance), allowing reduced failure rates and greater efficiencies across the board.

 

VEEDIMS offers cost savings benefits:

True glass cockpit controlling all aspects of the boat.

Elimination of all physical switches.

Elimination of manual circuit breakers, fuses and relays, providing a more reliable and fault tolerant system (66% reduction in connections contributes to less points of failure and corrosion).

Elimination of complex wiring harnesses.

Reduction of physical wiring leading to reduced weight.

Plug & Run ™ technology allowing for instant change and reconfiguration of components.

Ability to monitor all electrical, mechanical components plus the engines.

Vhistorian (Black Box) collecting thousands of data points of past and present operational information, providing a historical view of the boat for sophisticated analysis of usage contributing to higher resale values.

Remote IPad monitoring and control of the boat.

The first social network joining the builder, dealer and boat owner delivering a customized, interactive application for better customer support, lower operational costs and loyal boat owners.

CONSTRUCTION

A building controlled by a Building Automation System (BAS) is already an intelligent, or “smart” building using a compliant network of passive devices for diverse purposes that support human health, safety and creature comforts.

VEEDIMS takes it to a whole new level by creating dynamic interaction of all system components and processes, such as HVAC, lighting, blinds, alarm, and security systems to achieve significantly more cost and energy savings.

AEROSPACE

Integrated Neural Networks are the wave of the future and air framers like Airbus and Boeing are now comparing their cabin electrical systems to the human brain, with a network of intelligence pulsating through the cabin.

With their focus on making kilometers of cables and wiring a thing of the past, VEEDIMS is delivering solutions that support their goals, making the cabin “smart” to perform numerous functions, thus “connecting” passengers to the plane.

AUTOMOTIVE

By some estimates, the automotive electronics market is expected to top $77 billion by 2020 with cars becoming just another machine connected to the Internet. That’s good news for VEEDIMS, considering how far we have come toward achieving this with our unique, Intellectual Property protected intelligence that combines wired and wireless technologies with sophisticated software capabilities.

Our focus on sustainability is also in line with what has become important to the automotive industry. VEEDIMS transforms a vehicle’s traditional wiring and hydraulic system into a single power and information platform. This eliminates traditional relays, switches, wires and cables, plus makes everything connected VEEDIMSmart.

SIMPLIFIED DESIGN AND ENGINEERING

    Managing the complexities associated with implementing for the Internet of Things is not easy. All devices must work together and be integrated with all other devices, and all devices must communicate and interact seamlessly with connected systems and infrastructures. In fact, developing solutions with connectivity for each piece in the system can be quite expensive, time consuming, and difficult.

    To compete successfully in the Internet of Things market, you need ONE easily installable platform that can:

  • Collect and manage data safely and securely
  • Integrate and automate connected devices and assets to an application with real-time data capabilities
  • More efficient wired and wireless communications
  • Advanced hardware capabilities and connectivity

Only VEEDIMS offers ONE complete, solution for harnessing data to drive smarter solutions, cutting edge services, and lower installation and labor costs.
