The joint IoT with Edge AI platform combines IDT's Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and 6LoWPAN wireless interconnectivity devices, sensors, and MRAM non-volatile memory data storage with ONE Tech's IoT Platform and Micro AI technology. ONE Tech's platform and AI are designed to deliver performance optimization, security, and analytics for connected devices and assets.
The combined solution, say the companies, results in an end-to-end IoT ecosystem – from node-to-edge-to-cloud – that is ideal for a variety of smart city applications, including connected community, water and waste management, and energy and asset management.
"Securing connected assets and optimizing their performance are the most critical aspects of managing smart city environments," says ONE Tech CEO Yasser Khan. "By avoiding unexpected asset downtime, increasing the productivity of field teams and protecting all data, cities will be able to maximize their return on investment for all their public service projects while redirecting any savings to other critical initiatives."
Sailesh Chittipeddi, executive vice president and general manager of Renesas' IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit & IDT's president and CEO adds, "The IoT with Edge AI platform is an excellent alternative for IoT developers who do not want to develop their own cloud platform nor want to use other major cloud platform solutions, which require expertise in configuring wireless modules, sensors, and other connected devices. The platform is a ready-to-go solution that configures and provisions our sensor and wireless products, allowing IoT developers to easily scale and customize the platform to the unique requirements of their applications and devices."
The IoT with Edge AI platform offers the following features:
- Significant operational cost reductions
- Savings up to 50% annually in vehicle maintenance, fuel and tire costs
- Optimized fleet productivity using location-based tracking and analytics
- Delivery of actionable insights for continuous efficiency
- Data accessibility made possible by next-generation sensors
- Deployment of sophisticated AI models architected to drive greater availability, reliability and performance of any connected asset
- Greater visibility into
