- Rugged edge computers address such challenges and are specifically developed to withstand the rigors of harsh usage conditions with built-in durability and ruggedized features throughout.
This eBook will highlight how edge computing is moving technology and processing close to where data is generated from IoT sensors – and how rugged edge computing is advancing this strategy into more challenging physical surroundings with dedicated hardware technologies and strategies.
Readers will gain insight into how the rugged edge is defined by its need for reliable computers that process and pass data back and forth to core industrial applications and systems, accelerating the demand for machine learning and intelligent decision-making capabilities.
How Edge Compute Works
Edge Computing models enable symbiotic relationships between purpose-built hardware and software working together for interoperability into millions of connected IoT devices, large limitless data sets, and cognitive situational awareness through smart sensors and machine learning algorithms trained for AI.
The explosion of IoT technology and sensors help generate incredible amounts of data to help inform better machine learning and intelligent modeling.
Real-time data access and insights are enabling the edge for more intelligence and automation where inference analysis can provide real-time processing
Strategic actions based on data and insights improve costs, mitigate risks, and improve productivity and efficiency with greater agility.
Edge Computing can elevate a breadth of applications
Rugged Edge computers enable autonomous vehicles because they can gather the data produced by vehicle sensors and cameras, process it, analyze it, and make decisions in just a few milliseconds.
Machine & Computer Vision
Rugged Edge computers are often connected to high-speed cameras and infrared sensors that capture a video or photo of the product, analyzing it in real-time to determine whether the product has any defects.
Rugged Edge computers are used to gather, process, and analyze video footage, only sending footage that sets off certain triggers to the cloud for remote monitoring and analysis.
