IOTech Announces Edge Xpert 1.7 - The latest version of its open edge computing platform with an additional focus on ease-of-use and connectivity for the edge.
15th Jul 2020 10:49
IOTech announced today the general availability of Edge XRT, a new software platform for time-critical and resource-constrained applications at the IoT Edge. Edge XRT greatly simplifies the development of time-critical IoT systems at the Edge and enables application portability, improved supportability and faster time-to-market for new IoT edge applications. Edge XRT runs on commodity hardware, independent of silicon provider and operating system and has complete deployment flexibility, it can be deployed as a native application, containerized and/or into a virtualized environment.

IOTech made its first-ever appearance at the National Retail Federation show this year (NRF2020 in New York City, Jan 11-14) and did so in style. IOTech's Edge Xpert platform was selected by two retail heavy-hitters, Intel Corporation and HP Inc. to power their demos of edge computing for retail use cases. The primary use case on show was Intelligent Loss Prevention - that is, how to maximize the customer convenience of self-service checkouts, while minimizing the potential losses suffered by the retailer. Self-service checkouts are now commonplace in supermarkets and growing fast in other stores, but the limited integration of data from the discreet devices and applications involved (e.g. bar code scanners, connected weighing scales, POS systems and video cameras) means they are prone to misuse and fraud (examples of that are the subject of a totally different type of blog). However, through innovations at the edge, live integration of this data and the addition of integrated user interfaces allows for misuse to be identified in real-time and store staff immediately alerted to 'help' the customer and investigate.

IOTech are excited to announce the release of Edge Xpert 1.6. This is a significant new product release for a number of reasons but I wanted to highlight in this blog about how version 1.6 includes the initial availability of Edge XRT. Edge XRT is a new IOTech product we are launching and is the first real-time edge computing platform for the Industrial IoT. Aimed at real-time industrial process automation and embedded microcontroller applications, XRT enables ultra-low latency, high frequency data processing in a powerful edge computing platform. Edge control systems can utilize XRT to make key data-driven decisions within the deterministic timeframes demanded by time-critical IoT applications. We designed XRT to be a fully integrated and complementary extension to EdgeX Foundry, the leading open source edge computing platform. XRT now makes EdgeX the only IoT edge platform capable of supporting the full spectrum of secure hard and soft real-time IoT edge computing needs, and I think our users will really like this new capability.
