SmartCow Releases AI SuperCam and Box PC Powered by NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin for Next-Generation Edge Applications

Most powerful, compact and energy-efficient AI ‘at the edge’ for smart city with 5G functionality

ST. JULIANS, MALTA, September 21, 2022 – Today, SmartCow, an AI engineering company specializing in video analytics and AIoT devices, announced two robust ‘end to end’ solutions for smart cities: Mars, an AI edge embedded box PC; and SuperCam, the powerful all-in-one AI camera, both built on the latest NVIDIA® Jetson AGX OrinTM. The two solutions use the new, powerful Jetson AGX Orin to support 24/7 out-of-band (OOB) management and high-resolution streaming.

SuperCam is a state-of-the-art IP65 rugged smart camera designed for harsh outdoor temperatures. SuperCam has capabilities to collect and process video analytics at the edge to reduce latency, increasing the adaption of edge servers – vital where location, privacy needs or limited internet connectivity restrict the ability to pass data to a central server or cloud service. Equipped with a 4K rolling shutter, fixed-lens camera sensor and a global shutter sensor with a motorized lens, it collects vision data in high resolution and with acute accuracy. More computing performance and connectivity features include support for 10 gigabit ethernet and LTE/5G networks, providing hybrid seamless communication at the edge.

“We are thrilled to announce SuperCam, which is built on the newest NVIDIA Jetson Orin platform as a powerful workstation for more intensive video analytics,” said Ravi Kiran, Founder and CEO of SmartCow. “Jetson Orin is a game changer for edge AI and robotics, allowing us to continue developing smart city applications with exceptional performance, reliability and robustness, even in areas with limited or no connectivity.”

SuperCam is a IP65 ruggedized AI camera with advanced performance of AGX Orin, built for hash environment in transportation management.

SuperCam supports the SmartCow Intelligent Video Analytics (IVA) stack, which can work as a centralized edge computing server, connecting up to 15 cameras to create a density of data collecting networks for efficient video processing. Fully integrated with intelligent transportation system (ITS) solutions, SuperCam is capable of handling comprehensive traffic issues and reducing costs of deployment and integration for smart city initiatives.

Mars is an AI embedded Box PC built using the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin 32G/64G module. Designed for robust smart factory environments, Mars OOB power cycling or remote debugging helps to manage workloads so that even devices that don’t have network connection can operate to avoid system crash.

Mars is a rugged IP65 AI edge embedded system designed with NVIDIA®️ Jetson AGX Orin for AI gateway in the city.

The NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin delivers up to 275 trillion operations per second (TOPS), over 8x the compute performance of its predecessor, Jetson AGX Xavier. The powerful Jetson Orin platform brings the world of embedded AI a large step forward, allowing solutions run on the model to have more features, as well as better accuracy and reliability.

Key Features of SuperCam include:

●  Equipped 10 Gigabit Ethernet

●  Optionally Support LTE / 5G Network

●  Available with NVMe Up to 3TB

●  GPS Support

●  SATA 3.0 Interface Support

●  4K Rolling Shutter Camera Sensor with Fixed Lens

●  Global Shutter Sensor with Motorized Lens

Key Features of Mars Box PC include:

●  NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin 32G/64G module support

●  Support 1* 10Gbe Ethernet Network Port

●  Richable Expansion Slots

●  Support DIN-rail Mounting

●  Support 24/7 Out-Of-Band(OOB) Management

●  24V DC in, including 100W 24V Adapter

●  Individual GPS support

●  Optional 4G/5G support

Mars and SuperCam will be available in November. For more information, please visit www.smartcow.ai.

10X Faster Analog Simulation with PrimeSim Continuum

Sponsored by Synopsys

IC design has come a very long way in a short amount of time. Today, our SoC designs frequently include integrated analog, 100+ Gigabit data rates and 3D stacked DRAM integrated into our SoCs on interposers. In order to keep our heads above water in all of this IC complexity, we need a unified circuit simulation workflow and a fast signoff SPICE and FastSPICE architecture. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Hany Elhak from Synopsys about how the unified workflow of the PrimeSim Continuum from Synopsys can help you address systematic and scale complexity for your next IC design.
