Telchemy introduces embedded device analytics for IoT

Telchemy, a Georgia, USA, based provider of embedded analytics technology for VoIP and video, has introduced Embiot, a compact embedded analytics application for IoT devices, sensors and gateways.
 
Embiot provides a set of analytics functionality and is programmed using a high-level language. This agent technology is able to process multiple streams of independent or correlated data, distilling complex time varying data into a set of useful analytics.
 
Telchemy has field experience in edge analytics with an installed base in excess of 300 million agents that provide analytics for real-time services.
 
Embiot is said to be easy to use, requiring no software development expertise and taking minutes to configure the agent to analyse and report data. Its integrated run-time compiler allows configuration to be modified in the field or updated from a remote configuration server. This self-contained real-time application can be deployed on a wide range of gateways, devices and smart sensors, providing local analytics, making devices and sensors smarter, and sending actionable data to the cloud.
 
The application is said to require a tiny fraction of the compute power of a device or small gateway, is approximately 100kbyte in size and uses a small amount of memory. It is simple to programme, understands algebra and provides a library of more than 60 statistical, mathematical, logic and advanced functions, ranging from simple logs and square roots to filters, thresholding, interpolation, fuzzy logic and neural network functions.
 
Internally, Embiot uses an embedded stream processing model that can handle multiple streams of data arriving at different rates, and asynchronous and correlated data.
 
Suitable for many IoT applications, it can process high volumes of sensor data if needed, reducing the volume and bandwidth of data sent to the cloud. It can correlate time varying data locally, reducing the need to send frequent samples.
 
Sensor manufacturers can use Embiot to take single measurement outputs from sensors and create useful analytics. As Embiot is simple to configure, IoT vendors can provide analytics tailored to specific users.
