Welcome to the era of democratic programming
The platform is completely free and unrestricted for all public, educational, and non-commercial purposes. Moreover, some of applications that can gain commercial revenues, will be declared free and unrestricted by the company in the upcoming announcements.
Both of Information security and data protection are top priorities of our principles. Indeed, there is a complicated cryptography method whose keys are controlled by the operating users. Moreover, data are neither stored in any server nor sent to the any individual. As a result, content of information is not accessible to third party by no means, using devised cryptographic method.
The Developments of Plugins and Features of the program are guaranteed by NIO Team. In addition, the core of the program is open source for the authoritative developers. The release of the core will be done by NIO team after solving the related security and IP issues in the near future.
The leader of what was later called NIO was a young telecommunications and radar designer who ultimately lost all his personal capital due to the fall in the value of money and the policies of his country , in a third world country.
A few years after the introduction of the Android and iOS operating systems and advent of their compatible devices, we began designing products and services based on these. The fast growing iOS and Android markets as well as the tremendous rate of smart device adoption, provided us with an unrivaled opportunity for launching new products, or modification of previous ones in the medicine, urban management, industry and education fields.
Since 2010, we have designed equipment for controlling and monitoring small industrial complexes and greenhouses based on Android OS. For the first time, good user interfaces for such devices were available. Afterwards, the big challenge became how to tether hardware devices through Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or USB. This significant accomplishment has been applied to medical equipment and educational infrastructure. Thus, everyone who work with their smartphones could easily connect with the devices. Moreover, our framework reduced the complexity of different UIs and functionalities for each device. Our early business was established on such a developing country in which most of ordinary people were not able to afford to pay excessive expenses. However, our success has been challenge for us because this required lots of effort and time to handle the customer. For example, if there was any update needed for one Internet service or its APIs, then several dozen app projects had to be tweaked from scratch. Now, image that there was a huge number of modules in each software, and we wanted to brought update to each costumer. Such a terrific disaster!
In 2012 advancement, we decided to alter our programs into smaller and more independent sections, so that any change in each section only affected on its own section. After one year of hard work and dedication, we examined our first prototype on several household water management systems. Everything looks good, but it has its own difficulties. We have encountered with a new obstacle, which is obtained from the customer. The users did not want to install dozen application for each task on their smartphones.
2013 was a great turning point for us! We grasped that the conventional coding paradigm was appropriate for current needs of market. The app developers were not able to handle a Raspberry or even WiFi-module. As a result, we were determined to create a novel platform. We were sure that it would cost a lot of time and money. We had wonderful experience working with LabView and Matlab-Simulink from being at university. Graphic programming is an astonishing method of coding, however, is not available for Android and iOS platforms. Many parts of the structure of creating a data-flow program, which is foundational of regular graphical programming, has been patented and cannot be reused or redesigned. Additionally, data flow approach does not meet the requirements of some problems. Hence, we introduce our platform titled “Niomatic” which is inspired from the principle of causality rooted in rule of nature. Our team came up the idea of causality flow programming in September 2013. It seemed that we have discovered an unlimited source of inspiration. It could run every program structures, from loops and conditional statements to implementing complex control processes.
2015 was an adventure, by this year, several apps were created and tests repeatedly. The main problem that it was hard to justify the high cost of this project. Meanwhile, previous designs worked and, of course, a lot of time spent by the team to support those products. The design of most of the previous products was assigned to several companies. Now, the purpose of the new project was to change the way of building a private platform and selling products without disclosing its design approach to delivering a product in the public platform. At the end of 2016, the patent was filed in US patent.
2016 Focuse, At this time, we get our new office. The main purpose of the app development was defined under the Android platform.
2017 Generation, from the end of 2016, the New duty appropriation design for ease use for all people. The basic goal of the work is to simplify UI and create a sense of pleasant UX experience for NIO. In September 2017 a general beta release was scheduled.
Our main goal is to develop a platform for empowering everyone to build and design software and hardware that enhances their lives and business. A large part of repetitive work is eliminated in design and focus on the development of ideas and services.
Facilities and resources in some countries are so low that specialist personnel can not be found for making very simple products. The seemingly simple tasks make a big difference. Instead of destroying the markets of developing countries by giving the finished products, we can provide the people with the ability to produce the product.
Software and hardware development requires much capital and time. With these costs, it's hard to come up with a product introduction among millions of apps. But with the supply of the product in the form of a platform, people enjoy a lot of shared resources.
Our goal is to develop Nio covered all operating systems like iOS, Windows, Linux, Web based and also our goal to create a platform that runs on microcontrollers. After the final version of Android, the app will be available for other platforms as well. All applets will be implemented without any changes on all platforms.
Hardware and software are completely different from each other, each of which has various specialized sections. We plan to give people the ability to make hardware devices as well.
We also support modules available on the market, such as Raspberry PI, Arduino and other high-end modules.
People from around the world have come together
to make a dream comes to reality.
Thanks for all of them
We try to build friendly and supportive environment
people would like to work in
Companies and startups can create APIs, blocks or services in the form of these collaborative models.
We provide you Nio CSP (Core Software Package) that will allow you to develop software blocks.
You build and compatible your hardware modules that will be able to connect by nio.
If you provide a service like cloud computing, storage and similar, can give your service more people.
We're glad to see you among our partners.
I'm software developer
I'm hardware designers
