Africa Business Integration
ABI AIoT devices and consulting provides clients with the tools you need to take your product from prototype to production. Intelligent Systems Integration and Prototyping start with analytics.
To unlock new value for our clients, we begin by demystifying data that was previously in a digital silos or hidden. We use computer vision devices, sensors and analytics at the edge to activate real-time data streams and unearth, mobilize and monetize their data.
Third-party sources, from face access control, environmental monitoring, predictive maintenance search behavior to weather patterns, help further augment the data lake so we can mine for new operational and customer intelligence, and our data management services rapidly democratize this wealth of new information so our clients can seamlessly adopt and apply new intelligence across their business. We provide turnkey solutions for clients who do not have the resources to build a complete Computer Vision ( CV ) solution in-house.
A typical CV project often requires an extensive data collection effort, thoughtful dataset design for training and testing, research and development for implementing the state of the art solution and finally deploying a system that will easily integrate with the client’s existing systems. To deliver this end to end solution we employ a data collection team and a group of R&D experts and systems engineers who have experience in moving ideas from research to practice.
We have built scalable systems that are currently in production and are serving millions of requests a month in critical environments. Our solutions have a huge real-world impact in terms of speed and accuracy of algorithms, reduction in manual work, and identification and creation of intellectual property..

Stone Three’s first project was a continuation of Francois’ Masters project – a particle size analyser using acoustic technology, developed for De Beers Diamonds. Since then, their capabilities have evolved from pure signal processing into other areas such as machine vision, software defined radio, data analytics and machine learning, all underpinned by enterprise software development skills (whole product concept).
