IoT solutions have been continously growing in the past few years and have opened up new avenues for improvement. IoT devices and sensors now need to evolve and become smarter, which requires faster computing and processing on the edge. This blog discusses how Edge computing can help creating better IoT solutions.
The growth of IoT solutions has created new areas of development for embedded systems. With recent advancements in technology, a more diverse set of devices and sensors will reside on the edge. With ever-increasing amount of data collected by sensors, the edge devices will also need to have computing and processing capabilities to enable faster decision making.
To ensure real time processing and low latency of highly distributed embedded devices, solution providers typically implement edge computing. Edge computing shifts the data processing and computing power away from central servers to the nodes of a network. Edge computing, makes use of distributed data resources that are close to the devices generating data.
With the recent advancements in technology and cost reduction in edge computing, which was previously adopted only by very large corporate and government organizations is now used by even small and medium-sized businesses.
Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors are embedded in and engineered to meet the requirements for IoT solutions. As a leader in mobile computing technologies, Snapdragon processors are making devices more aware, connected, intelligent and interactive.
The Snapdragon processor platform is ideal for “Internet of Everything” use cases in smart homes, industrial automation, digital media players, smart surveillance and home appliances -be it Interactive kiosks, Digital signage, Robotics or High-tech toys. The Snapdragon processor combines a custom CPU, GPU, and DSP for high-power applications, ultra-low power applications, and everything in between.
