Overview

MyPiggy is a platform that introduces children and parents to the topic of finance together. This includes a smart piggy bank for smaller children up to receiving their own smartphone, as well as an app for parents and young people. With myPiggy, the smart piggy bank, children will be able to learn how saving money works.

Challenge

Creating a secure IoT system from scratch, which allowed the piggy to act as a small digital banking device. There was lack of in-process visibility to analyze the efficiency of overall work processes.

Results

We implemented an IoT-based piggy bank for the little ones for our customer, taking care of the firmware as well as the backend and the app for the Android platform. With our sister company aconno, we also provided advice on hardware.

Additionally using the Amazon Web Services as a host, we built an infrastructure to support the integration of different technologies such as horizontally scalable microservices, IoT MQTT services and much more, applying our quality criteria for the purpose of connecting the user to the piggy. 

After initially implementing a highly scalable infrastructure, and helping in the release of a first product, we will continue to provide support on maintenance and development of future features.

Troido is our reliable partner not only in the front end and at BLE, but also in the back end and especially when re-engineering complex hardware and embedded code. Every challenge that arose in the extremely complex project was in the best of hands with Troido - solved quickly and efficiently
