IIoT Requires Time-Sensitive Network Processing

September 16, 2019

By George T Hilliard   When dealing with Industrial IoT (IIoT) networks, particularly for manufacturing systems and utility grids, each connected device must typically execute multiple processes, such as data collection, analytics, and inference (machine decision making). One of the critical aspects of managing industrial environments is to control when and how each IoT device… Read More »

Balancing System Performance and Efficiency for Edge Computing

August 30, 2019

By George T Hilliard   With cloud computing, data is typically sent from the devices on the periphery of the IoT to a central server for analysis and some decision making. Then, the results or decisions, including the inferences made by artificial intelligence in some cases, are returned to the originating devices for execution. However, this… Read More »

What is an Industrial Embedded Computer?

August 19, 2019
WINSights Blog

By George T Hilliard Over the last few months, I’ve been writing articles about the various aspects of industrial embedded computing, and the systems that drive those application spaces. However, it makes sense to define what an industrial embedded computer actually is so we have a baseline for any future discussions. Using a basic definition,… Read More »

WINSights Blog

by George T Hilliard You’re working on a semi-custom design for a customer. That means you need to be tied pretty closely to your single-board computer (SBC) vendor. In fact, you probably feel like you’re spending more time with the vendor’s FAEs than with your own family. And in some cases, that might even be… Read More »

Industrial digital signage

The age of digital signage is upon us. Just driving down the highway shows examples of billboards that rotate their messages as we pass. In many scenarios, signage that can recognize what’s occurring in its surroundings can be a boon for merchants, manufacturers, consumers, and the general public. Now, the digital transformation of public spaces… Read More »

Machine Vision

by George T Hilliard The use of computer vision or machine vision continues to grow. That growth stems from the concept of pushing more intelligence (compute power) down to the Edge of the IoT, with vision systems piggybacking onto those systems, especially in industrial settings. There are many uses of computer vision and the list… Read More »
