Edge AI (the use of AI algorithms on devices located at the edge of a network) and machine learning (ML) work together to bring the power of artificial intelligence to local devices, enabling them to perform intelligent tasks without relying on constant internet connectivity or external cloud servers. Edge AI involves deploying ML models directly on edge devices, like IoT devices, and industrial machines, allowing these devices to process data and make decisions locally.
Applications for Industrial Panel PCs with Edge AI
Industrial Panel PCs equipped with Edge AI capabilities find applications in a variety of industrial settings where real-time data analysis, decision-making (think visual inspection for Manufacturing, smart traffic lights) and automation are essential.
Predictive Maintenance: Industrial machines and equipment can have sensors that collect data about temperature, vibration, and other factors. An Industrial Panel PC with Edge AI can process this data locally, analyzing patterns and predicting potential maintenance needs to prevent breakdowns.
Quality Control: In manufacturing, an Industrial Panel PC can analyze images from cameras on the production line to detect defects, ensuring that only products meeting quality standards proceed down the line.
Energy Management: Edge AI-equipped Panel PCs can analyze data from energy meters, temperature sensors, and other sources to optimize energy consumption in factories, warehouses, and other industrial spaces.
Robotics and Automation: In robot-assisted manufacturing, an Industrial Panel PC can process sensory data from robots, ensuring accurate positioning, movement, and interaction with the environment. Expect to see more robots in many more sectors in the future as the collaborative robots (cobots) market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 32% from 2023 to 2030.
Environmental Monitoring: Industrial settings often require monitoring of environmental conditions such as air quality, humidity, and noise levels. Edge AI can process this data and trigger alerts or adjustments when conditions exceed predefined thresholds.
