360° EdgeAnalytics for Sensor and Location Data

February 26, 2019

  • New nanotron software suit delivers actionable business insights automatically from real-time sensor and location data extracted and processed directly at the edge
  • Open architecture for any sensor and any location radio technology
  • Based upon industry-leading performance of ClearBlade’s Internet of Things (IoT) Edge Computing platform – connecting anything edge to cloud.

Berlin, Germany / Austin, TX, February 18, 2019 – At the embedded world Exhibition, nanotron Technologies GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sensera Limited (ASX: SE1), and ClearBlade Inc announce they are working together to deliver 360° Edge Analytics. Expanding the two companies’ previously-announced collaboration, 360° Edge Analytics is the first product of its kind, and is the starting point for a new range of analytics tools for the Industrial IoT.

360° Edge Analytics combines sensor and context data with location information to unlock business value based on automatically-detected events. By extracting and processing real-time data directly at the edge, actionable business insights can be derived with the lowest possible latency. Insights drive process optimization and increase performance while reducing cost.

The platform is based on an open architecture for any sensor and any radio location technology. Currently, it supports Chirp radio location and communication for low cost and long range, and UWB radio technology for very high precision down to 10cm. The system utilizes inputs from motion, temperature and gas detection sensors.

The 360° Edge Analytics software solution supports fully-automated, real-time event detection, leveraging context data for augmenting event information, for example to determine proximity or area events. It scales up to monitor thousands of entities simultaneously.

The 360° Edge Analytics product combines nanotron’s data acquisition, location-awareness and sensor and location data analytics with ClearBlade’s IoT Edge computing, creating a reliable and consistent enterprise-grade user experience across on-premise, edge and cloud environments, simplifying and improving management decision-making.

“360° Edge Analytics is the catalyst for digital transformation; translating sensor and location data into meaningful business insights – what is happening, where and when,” said Dr. Thomas Foerste, VP Marketing and Products at nanotron. “Thanks to ClearBlade’s IoT Edge Computing platform, the product provides flexibility and security, enabling nanotron’s customers to roll out their projects with ease and confidence.”

“Nanotron’s low-latency sensor and location data analytics provides the data that businesses need by executing analytics at the edge. ClearBlade’s platform supports connectivity and provides the framework for true real-time performance,” said Aaron Allsbrook, CTO at ClearBlade.

Nanotron’s solution is built on its location-aware IoT sensors, which generate context information with location mapping. The company’s Edge Anchors then seamlessly forward ‘what, where and when’ information from these sensors to nanotron’s value-generating 360° Edge Analytics solution. Edge Anchors have been proven in real-world and large industrial applications, with many thousands of anchors deployed and running 24/7 worldwide.
