Classic AI model in the cloud
Here’s why it’s not perfect:
Each request from the IoT device to the cloud takes time. Now you see that „realtime” processing is actually not always realtime.
More devices, means more data, higher transmission and processing costs. Yes. AI in the cloud is expensive.
Have you ever thought about where is your data processed? In your country? On the other continent? What about GDPR?
Processing a lot of data requires
a high bandwidth connection to the cloud (LTE or Wi-Fi) and it is not possible in some locations.
Edge AI starts a new age of intelligent devices
Edge AI devices can be used in virtually all applications where cloud-based solutions are used. Currently available devices with embedded AI accelerators allow putting the Edge AI in devices from single battery-powered sensors to high-resolution cameras processing Full HD images in real-time.
Cloud? Only for learning!
AI models still have to be taught in the cloud, but just after the learning period, a ready model is moved directly to the device and does not need a cloud anymore.
Edge AI device has direct access to the data collected from IoT sensors. It can understand the data and take immediate actions like notifying the user, lighting a red light or turning the voice signal on.
Edge AI device will work independently on the connectivity. It can be designed to send reports or summaries whenever the network is available i.e. once a day or once a month. Or it can work offline constantly if that’s assumed business scenario.
Edge AI Gateway - our solution
Imagine you can connect all your sensors to the industrial Edge AI Gateway.
Such a gateway is able to understand data from multiple sources and take actions based on the real-time data. It doesn’t matter if those will be vibrations for predictive maintenance purposes or video from the embedded camera for recognition of components on the production line.
What we offer is a Gateway ready to be enhanced for your business scenario.
We can equip it with cameras, input/output ports, connectivity modules and other components
based on your needs.
What does it mean for you?
that you can combine with every sensor
or system according to your business needs. You have endless number of possibilities.
even with many devices, sim cards or routers your costs are always smaller in comparison to cloud sollution with similar data transmission stream
data processing is always secure and you don’t have to worry about law regulation in different countries or GDPR.
Edge AI does not require high bandwitch connection with the cloud. It is working in every location. Sending data can occur only in some defined time periods. .
