“We are grateful for NRC-IRAP’s support and are excited to work with clients across key sectors of the economy as they leverage the Internet of Things to transform their businesses." said Timon LeDain, Director, Internet of Things, Macadamian.

This contribution represents up to $766,028 in NRC-IRAP funding to date. The additional funding will be used for further research and development on Macadamian’s feature rich IoT platform that will accelerate the development of custom IoT applications. The platform facilitates end-to-end connectivity to send and receive data from the Cloud from a range of devices connected over WiFi, BLE, and cellular communications. It will help to uniquely position Macadamian as a leading solutions provider of complex Internet of Things applications in the Healthcare, Cleantech and Industrial markets.

“We are grateful for NRC-IRAP’s continued support and are excited to be working with clients across key sectors of the economy as they leverage the Internet of Things to transform their businesses. NRC-IRAP is instrumental in building this capacity in Canada,” said Timon LeDain, Director, Internet of Things, Macadamian.

This investment is in addition to the $370,000 previously provided in support of the Macadamian Mobile Office, a framework for the development of mobile applications across multiple platforms, which was followed by the development of the HealthConnect™ platform, the Alexa skills development platform, and an IoT JumpStart kit for the rapid development of proof of concepts.

Securing a second round of NRC-IRAP funding of this magnitude has been driven by the successful launch of Macadamian’s HealthConnect™ platform which provides a core user management model and auditing capability needed by healthcare applications that deal with patient data. The user management model maps the relationships between patients and their care team, and the security features ensure regulatory compliance right out of the box. Once the framework is in place, Macadamian’s application developers can focus on custom feature development and not on developing the complex underlying framework, saving clients’ money while accelerating their path to commercialization.
