COMPANY PROFILE

Make Everything Online

Cambrian Robotics develops and sells IoT systems that turn electronic devices into APIs on the cloud under the slogan “Make Everything Online”. Their aim is to realize a world where anyone can easily connect anything to the internet. The development of IoT electronic devices requires long hours due to the need for development of both the firmware side and the web application side to connect to the internet and operate the electronic components from a remote location. To resolve that issue, Cambrian developed “Obniz”, a technology that allows all development to be done centrally from a PC or smartphone via the cloud. This reduces labor hours for development, lowers technical hurdles, and enables the implementation of complex processes, such as image recognition that are not limited by the CPU specifications of the microcontroller board.
