Data from sensors such as vision sensors/cameras generate large amounts of data, and it is expensive to send this the data to the cloud. If connectivity is lost (internet or 4G LTE signal) this data is lost or in the best case, can’t be used on a real time basis. This creates a single point of failure. Existing edge computing solutions are stand-alone systems built around an expensive and complex integration framework. The diagram below shows these technical limitations and the economic effects they have on many industries, including higher costs, less revenue, and reduced security.
