At LeafLabs, many of our projects involve helping clients connect their devices to the Internet of Things (IoT). Our experienced team of consultants can help from early architecture design (we really appreciate being included early on!) all of the way though pushing new firmware to devices in the field.  

We pride ourselves on quick execution, delivering outstanding, well documented work product, and being a downright pleasure to work with.

Whether you’re a Fortune 100 company prototyping an autonomous air taxi, a startup looking to add Bluetooth® connectivity to a wearable, or anything in between, we're excited to learn about what you're working on and where you could use a hand.  We're always happy to chat!


  • IoT Road Mapping

  • Rapid Prototyping

  • Hardware and protocol design and implementation (COAP, MQTT, DTLS, etc.)

  • Embedded security services (threat modeling, cryptography, etc)


  • Ethernet, short range wireless (Bluetooth®, Wi-Fi, or custom RF protocols), as well as long distance connections like cellular.

  • Embedded OS (Linux, OpenEmbedded/Yocto, Android, RTOSes: FreeRTOS, NuttX, etc.)

  • Deep experience across multiple embedded platforms (ARM Cortex M series, ARM64/aarch64, Intel x86-64)

  • Hardware and network communication protocols: USART/UART, I2C, SPI, MIPI DSI/CSI, Ethernet, LVDS

At LeafLabs, we help clients design and build Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Get in touch with us! We’d love to hear about your project and how we might be able to help.




IoT Project Examples

We developed a system to provide secure over-the-air (OTA) updates to an autonomous air-taxi drone currently under development.


Working with MIT and the USDA, we developed a wireless insect sensor to detect ant infestations in shipping containers.
