Edge computing is an information technology architecture where computation is moved as close to the source as possible. It brings the results from the server close to the end users to reduce latency and bandwidth use.
Outside the factory, ARBOR's machine vision solutions are used by Eurotunnel to facilitate the checking of vehicles wishing to cross the tunnel. With Automatic License Plate Recognition, the machines can automatically display on-screen information that is directly relevant to individual passengers. This can help to decrease the waiting time and prevent those without a booking from entering.
