Who benefits from EDG?

Edge Device operators managing edge devices and sensors need a platform to provision and monitor devices and their health. EDG provides an intuitive, easy-to-use interface that allows users to create custom dashboards and widgets to monitor device behavior in realtime. With EDG's device and asset management capabilities, assets can be managed and grouped by facility, owner, region, or other custom grouping attributes.
Edge data operators and analysts need a platform to analyze data from edge devices and sensors. EDG provides an analytics engine that is able to process and analyze large volumes of edge data to provide insights into device performance, usage patterns, and trends. Data can be filtered, aggregated, and correlated. EDG can also serve as a data distribution hub, pushing data into other or third-party systems. Auditing against data regulations such as GDPR is already a very important task and can be managed through EDG, making auditor's lives easier.
Edge system administrators and operators who manage and maintain edge infrastructures, including devices, networks, and platforms, require a scalable and secure platform that provides advanced management capabilities. EDG offers these capabilities, including user access control, device management, system monitoring, and more, allowing administrators to manage and monitor the entire IoT infrastructure from a single interface.
The ability to easily access devices and their data saves a tremendous amount of time, especially during the initial prototyping phase. In addition, engineers developing edge applications need a platform that provides APIs, SDKs, and tools to develop custom applications and integrations. EDG provides a comprehensive developer toolkit, including edge and device runtimes.

Use Case Example

Automotive Live Data Dashboard

WHAT
An automotive OEM wants to integrate, select, and visualize live vehicle data in a dashboard for realtime insights.

HOW
The aicas solution provides seamless access to realtime vehicle system data, such as vehicle diagnostics, sensor readings, and GPS locations. The dashboard analyzes, extracts, and visualizes insights from incoming live data streams. This enables live monitoring of speed, position, battery status, vehicle fault indications, fuel consumption, distance traveled, and much more. The solution provides over 100 configurable graphical widgets and can be used without programming skills.

VALUE
The insights provided by the dashboard enable operational and cost efficiencies as well as improved safety and performance. Decisions, responses, and actions can be taken immediately and cost effectively.

Key Features

  • No Code Editor

    The No Code Editor inside EDG allows users – without any programming knowledge required – to route, process, filter, and aggregate data. The editor comes with a large number of pre-built data operation nodes, but can also be extended with custom-coded new elements. This allows data coming from the edge to be wired to feed the EDG dashboards, trigger notifications and alarms, or provide further value for external consumers, such as an analytics system.

  • Data Processing

    EDG chains logical blocks that aggregate or filter incoming data. This makes it really easy to select, sort, and filter data. As a result, you have access to exactly the selection of data you need. Based on this valuable information, you can support your data-driven business and application models.

  • Data Routing

    Once the data is transferred to the cloud, you often need to pass it on to other systems or third-party applications. With EDG, this can be done through an easy-to-use graphical editor without having to write a single line of code.

  • Data Visualization

    Designing dashboards to visualize data can be done without any technical background. It is just a matter of dragging UI elements into the editor and selecting the data source. No programming is required to create powerful dashboards - quick and easy.

  • Integration With Cloud Data Services, e.g., AWS

    EDG integrates well with cloud data services, especially AWS IoT services such as FleetWise and Greengrass, to postprocess, aggregate, and visualize the data in user-configured dashboards. As part of the aicas EdgeSuite on the other end, it can control edge agents to easily collect, organize, and send the right data to the cloud.

The Solution Within the aicas Ecosystem

EDG supports third-party runtimes and solutions, but its value is greatest when it collects and seamlessly integrates data from aicas’ edge runtime systems. EDG works with JamaicaAMS, the modular application management system, JamaicaVM, the Java software development kit and runtime, as well as its automotive services, JamaicaCAR, and its industrial services, JamaicaIOT. Within this ecosystem, EDG enables data discovery from new data sources and rapid prototyping with direct insight into edge device data.
