Application Stories

AI-Powered Smart Street Lights
Cities are illuminated by thousands of street lights that help drivers and pedestrians find their way home safely. Equipped with AI technology, street lights can be used to not only light up roads, but also support city services such as air quality, humidity, and temperature monitoring, as well as traffic and parking management.

Solution

The customer had already implemented Advantech\'s edge computing platform to serve as a gateway computer for collecting data, including temperature and humidity levels, to facilitate operational analysis. Recently, the platform was upgraded with Advantech\'s VEGA-320 edge AI acceleration modules embedded into the cameras for analyzing multiple streams of video data and handling real-time tasks such as locating available parking spaces. The customer estimated that this solution increases the utilization of roadside parking by at least 10% to 15%.

 

Key Benefit

• Compact, low-power design with minimal installation effort
• Video analysis at the edge for instant response
• Saves bandwidth resources and costs

AI-Based AGV Navigation
Automated guided vehicles (AGV) are used to transport and handle goods predictably and reliably. With the integration of AI-based navigation, the optimal route is determined in real time, effectively increasing the runtime efficiency of AGVs for faster and smarter operations.

Solution

For vision-guided AGVs equipped with cameras, Advantech\'s VEGA-330 edge AI acceleration mini-PCIe module acts as a vision analytics engine, optimizing image processing and local inference for improved route planning and collision avoidance. This module is capable of processing and analyzing images captured by the camera to facilitate real-time AI-based navigation. By optimizing route planning, AI-based navigation increases the AGV runtime efficiency by up to 20%.

 

Key Benefit

• Compact design with standard interface for easy integration
• Low power consumption extends the battery life
• Enables AI-based vision-guided navigation
