Risks and challenges
Multiple prototypes of B.ONE smart Hub are ready and independently tested. We are confident about meeting the deadlines as per the schedule.
Few issues we may come across:
1) FCC and CE testing:-
B.One has to meet FCC and CE certification standards. If there authorities insist us to change any of the circuit block, This means we need to revise the electronics to pass the tests, which could cause delays and we have built this into our plan.
2) Sourcing from Chip Vendors:-
There may be unexpected delays delay from the suppliers of Components and to avoid that we are only working with Tier-1 global suppliers like Texas Instruments and Atmel. We are in constant touch with all our suppliers and at this time everything seems to on track to meet our stipulated timelines.
We would like to maintain highest level of transparency by keeping you all posted with the progress of the project regularly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
