Axeda and Intel have also developed an Axeda Go developer kit for connecting an Intel Galileo development board to the Axeda Machine Cloud, provisioning the device on the Axeda Machine Cloud developer site, and installing the Axeda Agent code into a Galileo workspace. The Intel® Galileo board is based on the Intel® Quark™ SoC X1000, a 32-bit Intel Pentium®-class system on a chip (SoC) and is software-compatible with the Arduino Software Development Environment. This enables according to the two companies the ability to extend the reach of the IoT, broaden options available to customers, and reduce the cost and complexity of connecting and developing intelligent products.
Organizations need more innovative ways to harness ever-increasing amounts of data from the physical world and use it to drive smarter decisions, enable new services and business models, and reduce costs In analyzing machine data and enable predictive maintenance. They are implementing business rules, alarms and alerts at the edge and in their enterprise business systems to automate field service, spare part deployment and other maintenance tasks. Machines are being designed with more processing power and being instrumented with temperature, infrared, acoustic, vibration, battery-level and sound sensors to optimize performance and monitor conditions that can be early indicators for the need for maintenance. These sensors are inputs into sophisticated rules for predicting service needs and illustrate the need for more processing power at the edge where the data is being collected.
