The company’s EDX real-time edge analytics software is now ready for third-party development on Itron’s IoT Edge Router, enabling new advanced smart city, smart utility, and IoT applications. Itron, which offers products and services on energy and water resource management, has more than 200 million intelligent devices deployed, including meters and IoT networking technology.
“Our customers are increasingly looking for better ways to manage and act on edge data,” says Don Reeves, vice president of development and technology at Itron. “SWIM EDX software on Itron’s IoT Edge Router enables real-time data reduction, analytics, and prediction that powers the next generation of smart city, smart utility, and IoT applications. This integration is a great example of Itron’s IoT Edge Router Development Kit at work.”
SWIM’s EDX software runs on existing edge devices enabling local data ingestion, data reduction, data analytics, and machine-learning on streaming edge data. The software also uses machine learning to produce “digital twin” models that self-train from real-time data to represent real-world objects and predict future behavior.
SWIM EDX for Smart Cities is designed to integrate easily with existing urban infrastructure to gather and interpret local data. It can combine city, traffic, vehicle, pedestrian, parking, and sensor data to power real-time smart city experiences and applications. SWIM also allows cities to offer open data APIs to third parties and helps to simply create applications for city or consumer use.
SWIM EDX also helps optimize large-scale urban/commercial energy, oil and gas operations, and utilities through smarter edge data, operations, grids, and consumption. SWIM runs locally analyzing data from sensors, meters, energy distribution, upstream/downstream equipment, utility assets – highlighting critical info and predicting future behavior – simplifying operations, services, and app development. The distributed learning efficiently and dynamically optimizes energy production/use using local assets, physical and network topology, power goals, and user experience metrics, the company says.
“Since introducing SWIM EDX to the market in early April, we’ve worked with a number of innovative companies such as Itron to address the needs of a variety of industries to analyze, reduce and learn from data at the edge,” says Rusty Cumpston, co-founder and CEO of SWIM.AI. “Smart cities, smart utilities, and IoT applications are a great fit for our EDX software, with a wide range of use cases.”
