As experts in smart sensing and connectivity technology, EBV can help you to recognise the most common terms and abbreviations in the areas of Cloud services, Fog or Edge computing and Sensor fusion:

Cloud services

Cloud services are made available to users via the Internet. They are provided by cloud computer servers rather than a company’s own servers which when it comes to the IoT or even Industry 4.0 opens up many application possibilities.

Fog or Edge Computing Mixed Media

Fog or Edge computing

This terminology is used when intermediate gateways between IoT devices and the Cloud are processing locally. 

  • To reduce the amount of information sent to the Cloud
  • For security reasons
  • To decrease network and Internet latency. The gateway can be more immediate than the Cloud because the Cloud can only take complex decisions from a pre-processed set of information.
  • To reliability. It provides a continuous working service even if the Cloud isn’t accessible.

Sensor fusion

Sensor fusion is an embedded software library which combines information from sensors, which are typically motion or image, and produces a complete, stable, accurate set of data.
