Ubiquitous’ Technology For Improved Lives

At the Embedded Systems Expo, Ubiquitous demonstrated a power strip that features a built-in Wireless LAN called the iRemoTap. This power tap can display the power status of devices that are connected to it from either a PC or a mobile phone, giving users the added option of switching the power on and off remotely. Ubiquitous has its own OS and the people at the company specialize in developing software for embedded systems.
