For developers who are interested in quickly developing R&D projects using accelerometry and vibration sensors, a new AI Starter Kit can be used to collect data quickly and exploit that data using AI in applications ranging from wearables to predictive maintenance solutions for machines. To foster cost-efficient industry 4.0 and digital signage applications, there is a new Raspberry Pi based smart display from TFT specialist Distec. In light of a steady increase of video surveillance hardware and AI-enabled analytics, Seagate unveiled the industry’s first AI optimised surveillance hard drive to efficiently manage data storage and processing challenges.
AI Starter Kit For Engineers
Reality AI has announced a new product for R&D projects using accelerometry and vibration sensors. The Reality AI Starter Kit is based on the Cross Domain Development Kit (XDK) from Bosch Connected Devices and Solutions, a programmable sensor device and prototyping platform. The kit allows users to collect accelerometry and vibration data using the sensor built into the XDK. Applications range from wearables for people to predictive maintenance solutions for machines to collect data quickly and exploit that data using artificial intelligence. Read more.
Raspberry Pi-based Smart Displays For Cost-efficient Industry 4.0
Distec plans to present its new IoT-compliant POS-Line IoT monitor for Industry 4.0 applications at the upcoming SPS IPC Drives 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany.
