The AAEON Atlas also features built-in cameras and sensors for data collection and analysis.

The key feature of AAEON Atlas is the embedded Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X vision processing unit (VPU). The Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X provides a low-power, high-performance solution for on-device AI inference. AAEON Atlas is compatible with the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit, which includes built-in features such as model optimization, hardware acceleration and more designed to maximize the capabilities of the Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPU

AAEON Atlas can be deployed in a wide range of edge computing applications. As an edge gateway, AAEON Atlas can connect with up to 200 smart street lights, providing intelligent control. With license plate recognition AI inference, AAEON Atlas can power applications such as Smart Street Parking or detecting traffic violations or accidents. With traffic and congestion monitoring, AAEON Atlas can optimize traffic signals in real time to help improve traffic flow. AAEON Atlas can also anonymously detect pedestrians in crowd control and flow monitoring applications.

AAEON Atlas also comes with the full end-to-end support offered by AAEON. From concept to customization to setup and deployment, AAEON provides customers with full support to ensure their Smart City solution is ready to go from day one.

“With AAEON quality and expertise, AAEON Atlas is the solution built to carry the weight of Smart City applications,” said Kevin Ting, Senior Product Manager with AAEON’s New Business Development division. “Whether as an IoT/AIoT gateway or providing real time AI analytics, AAEON Atlas uses the latest in Intel® Vision Products to provide invaluable edge computing processing for Smart Cities.”
