Early Fire Detection Design Model for Smart Cities: Using AWS IoT and ML Technologies

Introduction The National Fire Protection Association records over one million fires each year. These fires rank as one of the top threats to urban safety in the United States. Currently, fire departments largely rely on traditional fire detection systems composed of in-home smoke detectors, fire call boxes, and public notification (calls) to receive their alerts. […]

Use location data with AWS IoT Device Management to monitor and manage your IoT fleet

AWS IoT Device Management’s location indexing and geoquery feature allows you to search for devices based on their last reported location. You can list devices that are located within a specific geographic area, perform a proximity search relative to a reference location, implement targeted over-the-air (OTA) updates, derive location-specific device performance insights, and identify devices that are no longer in a desired geographic boundary. In this blog, you will learn how to get started with indexing location data and using geoqueries to support your day-to-day IoT fleet management operations.

In this post, we will do a deep dive on how to calculate OEE using AWS IoT SiteWise native capabilities to collect, store, transform, and display calculations as an end-to-end solution. We will look […]

Design considerations for cost-effective video surveillance platforms with AWS IoT for Smart Homes

Introduction Designing and developing a cost-efficient, cloud-connected video platform for surveillance cameras and smart home devices require developers to architect and integrate a streaming service capable of ingesting, storing, and processing unstructured media data at scale. The infrastructure behind such a platform needs to handle large volumes of predicated data load along with the flexibility […]

Industrial Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) guide with AWS IoT SiteWise

Introduction Overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) is the standard for measuring manufacturing productivity. It encompasses three factors: quality, performance, and availability. Therefore, a score of 100% OEE would mean a manufacturing system is producing only good parts, as fast as possible and with no stop time; in other words, a perfectly utilized production line. OEE provides […]

Building machine learning pipelines with Amazon Kinesis Video Streams

Introduction Amazon Kinesis Video Streams (KVS) makes it easy to securely stream video from connected devices to AWS for analytics, machine learning (ML), playback, and other processing. KVS automatically provisions and elastically scales all the infrastructure needed to ingest streaming video data from millions of devices. It durably stores, encrypts, and indexes video data in […]
