HWTrek, a global community for digital electronics, today announced the beta launch of the HWTrek Project Development Hub (the Hub), the world’s first cloud-based intelligent navigation tool for creators and inventors working to bring hardware projects to market. The Hub generates a management flow tailored specifically to each unique project and facilitates collaboration between inventors and HWTrek’s ecosystem of manufacturing and supply chain partners – ensuring that the right people are matched up and connecting based on their areas of expertise.
In the beta phase, inventors are able to:
- Create a preliminary schedule that gives an overview of all the tasks that lie ahead,
- Collaborate with HWTrek's experienced project management team, which will tailor a schedule and production plan for each project,
- Monitor a project's progress, and
- Move into the next stage of the production timeline with industry guidance.
“Navigating the process of developing a new gadget or mobile device can seem daunting to even the most experienced inventor. The Hub assists inventors every step of the way and all in one place as they plan, develop, manage resources and track the progress of their projects,” said Lucas Wang, CEO and Co-Founder, HWTrek. “Its intelligent navigation is unlike anything else out there, working as a matchmaker for the global hardware maker community. This is just the beginning; users can expect more features over the coming months.”
How does it work?
The first step is to let the Hub know what you’re building. Projects span across all hardware categories, from mobile and wearables, to auto, health and science, to industrial apps. Based on specific project information input into the system, the Hub will generate a customized production schedule.
Users then track the progress of each ongoing project, with prompts on what exactly needs to be done at that point for each one. With that insight, users can use the built-in communication channel to invite relevant collaborators – team members, partners and manufacturers – to learn about their project idea, production schedule and plans to bring the product to market.

"At ROHA we develop an app called Catcha. It was developed after we spent a year meeting with, talking to, interacting with senior citizens watching them use their smartphones and talking to them about how they use their smartphones so we could get to know their smartphone behavior," explained Dave Woods, Chief Innovation Officer at ROHA, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
