JULIANS, MALTA, July 26, 2022 – SmartCow, an AI engineering company specializing in video analytics, AIoT devices, and smart city solutions, today announced the release of Ultron, an NVIDIA®️ Jetson-based edge AI platform with sensor fusion capability on the edge for industrial applications requiring logic-based decisions and actions. Ultron is built for smart city and autonomous infrastructure applications where high computing power and low latency can be leveraged for AI vision applications, helping deliver solutions for various verticals such as smart factories, road intersections, and home automation.
The sensor fusion platform is a computer-controlled industrial system that continuously monitors the state of input devices and makes decisions based on a set of rules and inputs through a custom program to control the state of output devices. “The next generation sensor fusion platform is more preferred in industrial applications due to reliability, flexibility, and robustness,” said Ravi Kiran, CEO of SmartCow. “With Ultron, we intend to change the way the industry develops and deploys automation and autonomous infrastructure in various verticals. The relevant use cases encompass smart factories, industry 5.0, traffic management, smart cities, smart buildings, and agricultural settings. Ultron, with a state-of-the-art computing and sensor fusion platform, goes beyond the capabilities of traditional industry-grade devices in delivering AI based PLC solutions.”
SmartCow built an all-in-one control software platform in Ultron that combines a wide range of industrial functionalities such as machine vision, sensor fusion, AIoT, and robotics, complemented by a control software. This control software integrates I/O control, computer vision, video analytics, and NVIDIA DeepStream by providing the necessary vision and sensor fusion capabilities in the form of function libraries, I/O blocks, and APIs that can be called up from Ultron, all configurable through a browser-based programming tool. Ultron also works with SmartCow FleetTrackr, which monitors and records run-time data such as machine productivity or operating temperature, automatically starts and stops processes, generates alarms and alerts if a machine malfunctions, and more.
Key features of Ultron include:
- Edge computing platform: Supports a variety of high-performance compute modules such as NVIDIA Jeston Xavier NX™ and Orin NX™
- Seamless communication: 5G/LTE/Wifi options supported for wireless data transmission.
- Advanced AI capabilities: Easily integrate ML/DL models with higher detection and prediction accuracy in machinery and robotics automation processes.
- High interoperability. Supported LAN/USB that is interoperable with standard industrial and machine vision cameras for real time AI-enabled inference.
“To easily integrate edge AI with flexible industrial automation technology, SmartCow provides the solution of Jetson-based sensor fusion platform, applicable for a wide range of industries,” said Kiran.
