KnowThings.io is a machine learning device virtualizer enabling realistic data scenarios for testing, advanced prototyping, and early stage development at a fraction of cost and time over traditional simulation and emulation solutions.
What is a KnowThing?
A KnowThing is a machine learning driven virtual device to support IoT prototyping, development and testing. Imagine doing test driven development against devices that don't even exist yet, or performance testing against 1,000,000 devices without racks and cables. By interfacing at the protocol layer, KnowThings avoid the pitfalls of emulators and simulators while eliminating the need for physical devices through most of the SDLC.
