Leading semiconductor solutions provider
) has recently introduced BCM2835 - a single chip low power
application processor that enables the world's first
cloud-connected Robotic Sprinkler System -The Droplet Robotic
Sprinkler System. The new low power application processor is an
innovative technology behind the Droplet sprinkler system to
reduce energy costs and conserve water.
The Droplet robotic sprinkler system features water timer, smart
controller and a targeted sprinkler head. Using the latest
technology in robotics, cloud computing and connected services,
Droplet Sprinkler System leverages advanced embedded processing
to cut household water consumption by 50%, while reducing
sprinkler system consumption up to 90%. Droplet can be easily
configured on any smart phone, tablet or lap top, giving users a
control of their system. Therefore, each sprinkler system is
likely to save thousands of gallons of fresh water annually.
This new product is expected to benefit the consumers by
conserving water and reducing power usage. Further, low costs and
easy to use features will enable the product to capture a
sizeable market share. With the rising demand for automated home
control and the development of the Internet of Things driving
significant growth in a variety of end markets, analysts expect
the home automation market to reach $16.4 billion by 2019.
