SmartEdge Agile integrates nine sensors, and allows the implementation of AI at the edge through an easy-to-use, zero-code interface. SmartEdge Agile uses Bluetooth Low Energy 5.0 and is CE and FCC certified. The device is based around an 80-MHz, 32-bit Brainium STM32 chip featuring an ARM Cortex-M4. Integrated sensors include two 3D accelerometers, a 3D gyroscope, a 3D magnetometer, a pressure sensor, a humidity and temperature sensor, a microphone, an ambient light sensor and proximity sensor, all from STMicroelectronics. SmartEdge Agile also has a Secure Element for authentication, encryption and integrity of the exchanged data. The device has a modular build with a sensor board, connectivity board and a USB Type C connector to allow customisation.
By using SmartEdge Agile with Octonion’s Brainium portal and AI Studio powered by Microsoft Azure, users will have access to a “zero-coding” machine learning tool that allows easy intelligence integration. Brainium Portal can be used to develop a proof of concept by using more than 20 predefined AI algorithms that can be re-used through to product launch. A Brainium software agent is embedded into SmartEdge Agile allowing an interface to AI Studio and facilitating the end-to end solution.
