STARKVILLE, MS – 21 March 2017 – Camgian announced today the issuance of a patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office for a novel sensor networking and processing architecture for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The invention number 9,596,091 titled “Multiple Sensor Data Processor Interface and Relay” relates generally to a system and method of networking and interconnecting a large number of diverse sensors to a remote location in an efficient manner. Specifically, the invention utilizes a flexible, configurable, scalable and power-efficient sensor interface relay architecture to gather, process and analyze sensor data in the field and relay insights to a remote location via the Internet.
“The evolution to smarter physical systems will result in the proliferation of heterogeneous sensors at large scale”, said Dr. Gary D. Butler, CEO of Camgian. “Efficiently connecting sensor devices to the Internet and managing their large volumes of complex, in-situ data require new approaches to IoT system architectures.”
The patent supports Camgian’s technology strategy in the IoT market, which is based on an edge (or distributed) computing model. Its Egburt™ platform includes an embedded server appliance, called an IQ Server™, which performs in-situ functions such as data ingestion, storage and processing of multi-sensor data streams. The IQ Server also provides 4G LTE communications with Egburt’s cloud hosted Insight™ software, which supports data aggregation, analytics and presentation. Currently, Egburt is enabling industrial applications in the condition based monitoring and maintenance market.
