Notes from the field: accelerating edge-to-cloud fleet deployments

edge-to-cloud fleet deployments

Choosing the appropriate cloud platform for your Edge AI device deployments is a major strategic decision for any company. Do you invest in building your own private cloud? Or do you adopt one from AWS, Microsoft, Google, and a host of other third-party providers? Each path has its own advantages and disadvantages. Only you can decide which one provides the best fit for your organization.

Our objective with the VIA Mobile360 family is to make edge-to-cloud fleet deployments as simple and convenient as possible, no matter which cloud platform you decide on. At the most basic level, this means that we have enabled support for all the most popular cloud interfaces and protocols in the SDKs that we provide with each VIA Mobile360 system or device.

To optimize interoperability and performance on specific cloud platforms, we also participate in hardware validation programs such as the AWS Device Qualification Program (DQP). The VIA Mobile360 D700 AI Dash Cam is an AWS IoT Core Qualified and AWS Kinesis Video Streams Qualified device, while the VIA Mobile360 M810 and M820 in-vehicle systems are AWS IoT Greengrass qualified.

Support for AWS IoT Core and Amazon KVS on the VIA Mobile360 D700 facilitates the development and integration of cloud-based vehicle tracking, driver assistance, and real-time video streaming applications that increase fleet productivity and boost responsiveness to dangerous incidents.

AWS IoT Greengrass integration on the VIA Mobile360 M810 and M820 further enhances safety by ensuring that the systems can run using locally-generated data when the network isn’t available – a vital feature for moving vehicles when a split-second delay can lead to a fatal accident.

To enable you to explore the enormous possibilities that edge-to-cloud deployments open up for transforming fleet operations, we have created our own AWS-powered demonstration VIA Fleet Cloud Management Portal. A 30-day free trial of the portal, including 50 hours of live streaming using Amazon KVS, is provided with the VIA Mobile360 AI Dash Cam. A wide range of development and customization services is also available.
