PNY and SmartCow Join Forces to Offer AI Edge Solutions for Smart Cities

PNY Technologies, a global supplier of components and solutions for the artificial intelligence, HPC, Data centre and professional visualisation markets, and SmartCow, an AI engineering company specialising in video analytics and AIoT devices, announced a strategic partnership to bring AI smart city solutions and support development throughout Europe, the Middle EastAfrica and India.

For more than 35 years, PNY has been a leader in the artificial intelligence market through strong partnerships with innovative technology companies, such as NVIDIA. Through this partnership, PNY will gain access to streamlined, comprehensive smart city infrastructure and AI applications and hardware from SmartCow, enabling PNY to strengthen its position as a global provider of artificial intelligence solutions and accelerate the digital transformation of cities globally. In addition to its technical expertise, PNY also provides partners with an unprecedented level of pre-sales and logistical support to help them better understand the solutions.

“Small and large urban cities are changing, giving way to smart cities. Finding a suitable partner to support the networking for all our smart cities projects is mission-critical for executing this type of work at scale,” said Jérôme Bélan, CEO at PNY Technologies. “In practice, smart city implementation is complicated and demands certain requirements. SmartCow immediately stood out as the best partner given its rich experience in building smart city applications, with expertise in both hardware and software. Working with its technologies leveraging both 5G and edge computing will provide us with an optimal network and real-time interconnectivity between urban elements, individuals, connected objects and public authorities, enabling us to bring our developments to life to benefit cities across the globe.”

Smart City Solutions from SmartCow:

  • SmartCam: This AI-enabled camera has the ability to control object detection, sensor fusion, traffic analysis, and trajectory tracing algorithms that are essential for the next-generation’s workload. Based on the NVIDIA Metropolis software, SmartCam leverages the powerful capabilities of NVIDIA Jetson artificial intelligence platforms, the leading platform for autonomous machines and embedded applications. Compact and robust, SmartCam can be deployed indoors to monitor production lines or even study customer habits (e.g. measuring consumer traffic at certain times). It can also be used outdoors, to detect security breaches, (e.g. identifying firearms in airports, train stations, and ports), and monitor road traffic.
  • Apollo Development Kit: This artificial intelligence development kit allows developers to create and build applications that transform everyday life including digital transformation of conference rooms and self-service counters in airports. Apollo will enable users to create conversational edge computing applications. It features the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX GPU, which includes several SDKs such as Embedded Riva, JetPack and DeepStream, to enable seamless evaluation of AV AI models rather than activating peripherals and to ensure successful system integration.
  • CityStation: This AIoT platform can measure the weather and atmospheric conditions of a defined area. CityStation is also a video analytics processor capable of running powerful artificial intelligence models on real-time video streams from 5MP or 4K in-car cameras. With its unmatched processing performance, CityStation is the ultimate solution for smart city applications. It can monitor air quality, weather conditions, traffic, face and object recognition and security investigations (forensics). This makes it the ultimate solution for smart cities, aerospace and defence applications, as well as industrial environments requiring support for extreme temperatures. This device allows a large amount of data to be collected in the city by combining camera and software (data is displayed in a dashboard).
