Blackroc Technology has a long pedigree in the development, manufacture and integration of specialist technologies within the general field of handheld and mobile computing and associated sensing, positioning and identification technologies.
Custom rugged solutions have been produced for many customers in a wide spread of industrial markets. At the extreme rugged end of this spectrum we have supplied all branches of the military, where at one time Blackroc rugged handheld devices were regarded among the toughest handheld military computing equipment available.
Towards the more commercial end of the spectrum, we have supplied customised product in to the parking industry for many years, and to many other companies and markets from RFID enabled waste bin collection to stock control devices in supermarkets.
Custom product manufacture is still a core element of the business today, and we have in recent years added camera and imaging technology together with precise satellite positioning to our portfolio of technology competences.
Essentially we design develop and manufacture finished products encompassing the individual components and IP and the fruits of advanced research produced by other specialist component suppliers. In so doing we partner with some of the worlds most respected research organisations, and commercial companies who are recognised specialists in their field. Generally, we don’t design and develop the core sensing technologies themselves but integrate them into working solutions.
We see our job as integrating leading edge technologies into working platforms which are ergonomic, often innovative and designed for specific applications and markets. In this role we are low level systems integrators. We design the command and control central processing units and software which integrate these technologies into a homogenous whole. As such these devices are generic and offer application benefits across a broad spectrum of different markets.
The end product is often a complete working hardware solution with embedded control firmware, shipped with an SDK (software developer’s kit), so that application developers can integrate the hardware with their own specialist vertical market application.
