TOI team developed VIPER, a very promising and complete suite for the IOT world. The impressive work they did on prototyping boards is the demonstration of their ability to work also on professional and commercial applications. The professional way they approached the "makers" demonstrated a clear orientation to real products more than to prototypes only.
The team combines the creativity of researchers with the goal-orientation of smart companies. The ability to involve people and the wide network they have is a value added when transforming a research project into commercial products.
I have known the founders of TOI since 2012 and have advised them on various commercial projects. They ah e excelled at each project they have attempted for which they ask for some guidance on. They are highly competent, focus on the opportunity, and deliver the results.
I know Gualtiero, one of the founders of TOI, since some years and we collaborated on different intiaitives and projects. Working with him has been a very challenging and stimulating experience, as he combines an extrem versatility and curiosity for different technologies and research branches with an unvaluable capability to make innovation. He succeded with TOI and other initiatives, in grounding the research results into running activities and concrete, commercial results.
