Chirp and UIB Onboard IoT Devices Through Data-Over-Sound Technology

By

According to a recent announcement, Chirp, a developer of a method for transmitting data via sound waves, is working with Unified Inbox to deploy smart home, smart enterprise, and smart city intelligent IoT messaging solutions designed to make provisioning of devices and sensors more secure, faster to onboard, and easier to use.

The Chirp and Unified Inbox collaboration includes the integration and testing of UIB’s UnificationEngine IoT messaging platform with Chirp’s data-over-audio technology. Chirp’s technology encodes any kind of data into a unique audio stream, which allows any device with a speaker to transmit and most devices with a microphone are able to decode it. UIB provides natural language communications (NLP) for IoT devices.

“The combination of our technologies is game-changing for the growing world of IoT,” said Moran Lerner, CEO and Executive Director, Chirp. “We have a vision of enabling any device to connect, interact, and share data with another, so when we came across Unified Inbox, we were blown away at how complementary their technology was to ours, and that they have developed such a simple yet powerful platform. This partnership fits to meet almost every demand in IoT.”

The integration layer is designed to be easily adapted and developed for smart home, smart enterprise, and smart city use cases across verticals like energy, public transit, healthcare, waste/water management, home appliances, and consumer electronics.

“Despite the huge progress in IoT worldwide, interoperability and disparate platforms are a real issue,” said Toby Ruckert, Founder and CEO, UIB. “We designed UnificationEngine to overcome most of these issues, but we still wanted to make that last mile of the user's onboarding experience shine. Our search was for that one technology that, when coupled with ours, would create a frictionless, end-to-end solution that bridges and overcomes the issues and pain points in the most seamless way possible. When we met and saw Chirp, the synergies between the two were incredible. There isn't another sound-based technology anywhere near Chirp's capabilities and ubiquity. They are the technology everyone speaks about and recommends, and the only technology proven in the real-world and used by millions of people - even in such mission-critical areas as atomic reactors. Working in both online and offline environments, like UnificationEngine, Chirp is a truly universal technology, and does not require devices to go through any prior handshake process before they can exchange data.”
