UA Safe and fully working on projects including shipping and production.
If you need your hardware design or electronics product developed from an idea to a working prototype which you can personally test - and launch to mass production, I can help.
I’m an electronics engineer who specializes in wearable technology, sensors and IoT. I work with my team to take projects from start to finish. My focus is engineering design and manufacturing in the following areas:
- Biosignals: ECG, EMG, heart rate, NIRS, SpO2;
- Wearable devices for health and fitness; telemedicine
- Motion tracking and sensor fusion
- RF and Bluetooth (BLE)
- UWB localization and tracking on an area
- IoT: environmental, agricultural and automation sensors; smart home
- Robotics: manipulators, robotic systems with motors
- LEDs and lighting systems
For your project, I will work on research, choose and source components, communicate with suppliers and factories, organize production and logistics. I also perform manual assembly and testing of prototypes.
Except me, there are three people: planning specialist, industrial designer, and PCB designer/firmware programmer. We’re a multidisciplinary diverse team that can handle projects of varying complexity, but we especially shine at projects which combine research and innovation with practical, manufacturable approach. Besides this, we don’t have bureaucracy, communicate fast and dedicate ourselves to your project as if it was our own. We discuss and plan thoroughly, respect deadlines and spend budget optimally.
You can see our recent jobs and portfolio on our team page ("Ultimate Robotics" on the left of my profile). We work on projects together, so I took part in most of them.

During work on your project, we’ll typically go through the following process:
💡Discussion of your ideas, requirements and goals
So we can understand in detail what you have in mind and what are your expectations.
📑 Writing scope of work and estimate
This will provide you with an exact view of how the project will go and resources needed, so you can plan accordingly and set priorities. We agree on requirements, timeline and budget at this stage.
🔬Research of possible approaches and their feasibility
We will research the technology, its complexity, components, cost, availability and manufacturability. After this, we discuss the results with you to decide on the best approach for your goals and constraints.
⚡Creating circuit design
We’ll design schematics and PCB layout for the first prototype.
🚢 Production and shipping
We prepare PCB files and BOMs and order the production. Depending on the factory and next steps, we can also order components and ship the prototype PCBs to us for further assembly and testing, or they are shipped to you directly.
🖥 Writing firmware and other software
While we wait for the production, we start writing firmware.
🔩 Creating 3D models (for 3D printing)
When a device needs an enclosure or other components, we can design those and 3D print them at our workshop.
🏗 Uploading firmware, testing and debug
If we ship PCBs to us, we test them. The boards may not work initially and electrical debug may be required. Bugs are solved by resoldering components or rewriting firmware.
🚀 Shipping prototypes to you
After debug, we package and ship prototypes to you with uploaded firmware.
🤳 Prototypes are tested by you
You receive a set of prototype PCBs and can now test them yourself. At this step, we are listening to your feedback, improving the firmware and debugging it with you if something doesn’t work. Once everything works as expected, we have a working prototype!
🌟 You can now plan the next steps: do you want to make a demo with it? Or the next PCB iteration? Or maybe try a first small production run of 20-50 pcs? Having something that physically works, that you can use or show to first clients or an investor opens a lot of new possibilities.
Send me a message or invite me to your project so we can talk about your idea and how to make it!
