Greenwave unveils edge analytics integration for Wind River VxWorks

IoT software developer Greenwave Systems is partnering embedded software provider Wind River to integrate its edge analytics AXON Predict engine into Wind River's VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS). 

Using AXON Predict, developers will be able to build on a customised analytics solution that provides real-time intelligence throughout Industrial IoT (IIoT) segments. 

AXON Predict will allow VxWorks developers to build a set-and-forget application with intelligence and process critical data at the edge of a network in real-time. 

Greenwave says this will enable machines and smart sensors to collect information at every step of the network, automatically detect anomalies and take immediate action right at the source of input. 

Enhanced security features bolster the analytics engine and will provide enterprises with yet another layer of data and device protection.

"We sought to give VxWorks developers a tool with the prowess to analyse and autonomously respond to high-volume streaming sensor data at the source; our partnership with Greenwave will enable us to do just that," said Michel Genard, general manager of operating system platforms, Wind River. "AXON Predict will provide developers with embedded analytics that learn patterns, provide insights and take actions inside connected device operations and behaviours. We're very pleased to be working with Greenwave to offer a compelling solution to advance IIoT."

"We're excited to deliver Wind River security and predictive maintenance solutions that its VxWorks developer community can embed on their devices," said Simon Arkell, general manager of software platforms and analytics at Greenwave Systems. "Our technology will enable them to build secure, smart things that reduce asset maintenance costs and add new functionality across myriad industries. As the first analytics solution to integrate with VxWorks, AXON Predict will automate operational efficiency in a way that was previously unattainable by those building connected devices and systems within the RTOS."
