Most powerful, compact and energy efficient AI “on the edge” for Smart City with 5G functionality
ST. JULIANS, MALTA, September 21, 2022 – SmartCow, an AI engineering company specializing in video analytics and AIoT devices, today announced two robust end-to-end solutions for smart cities: Mars, an AI edge embedded box pc; and SuperCam, the powerful all-in-one AI camera, both based on the latest NVIDIA® Jetson AGX OrinTM. The two solutions use the new, powerful Jetson AGX Orin to support 24/7 out-of-band (OOB) management and high-resolution streaming.
SuperCam is a state-of-the-art, rugged IP65 smart camera designed for harsh outdoor temperatures. SuperCam has the ability to collect and process video analytics at the edge to reduce latency and increase edge server customization – crucial when location, privacy requirements, or limited internet connectivity limit the ability to send data to a central server or cloud -to hand over service. Equipped with a 4K rolling shutter, a fixed lens camera sensor and a motorized lens global shutter sensor, it captures image data in high resolution and with the highest accuracy. Other computing power and connectivity features include support for 10 Gigabit Ethernet and LTE/5G networks, enabling hybrid seamless communications at the edge.
“We’re excited to announce SuperCam, powered by the latest NVIDIA Jetson Orin platform, as a powerful workstation for more intensive video analytics,” said Ravi Kiran, founder and CEO of SmartCow. “Jetson Orin is a game changer for edge AI and robotics that enables us to build smart city applications with exceptional performance, reliability and robustness, even in areas with limited or no connectivity.”
SuperCam is a robust IP65 AI camera with advanced performance from AGX Orin, designed for transportation management hash environments.
SuperCam supports the SmartCow Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) stack, which can act as a centralized edge computing server, connecting up to 15 cameras to create a density of data capture networks for efficient video processing. Fully integrated with intelligent transportation system (ITS) solutions, SuperCam is capable of addressing comprehensive traffic problems and reducing deployment and integration costs for smart city initiatives.
Mars is an AI embedded Box PC built with NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin 32G/64G module. Designed for robust smart factory environments, Mars OOB Power Cycling or Remote Debugging helps manage workloads so even devices can function without a network connection to avoid system crashes.
Mars is a rugged IP65 AI edge embedded system built with NVIDIA®️ Jetson AGX Orin for the city’s AI gateway.
The NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin delivers up to 275 trillion operations per second (TOPS), more than 8 times the processing power of its predecessor Jetson AGX Xavier. The powerful Jetson Orin platform brings the world of embedded AI a major step forward, allowing solutions running on the model to have more features, better accuracy, and reliability.
