The Smart Safety Platform combines Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies, edge computing, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide a comprehensive safety management system, providing real-time risk and safety information to safety managers and site operators.
FREMONT, CA: Veea, a pioneer in smart edge connectivity and computing, declared that the Company entered into a joint development agreement with SK E&C for a construction safety management system on the basis of the Veea Edge Platform. Construction sites are high-risk places with many activities that involve heavy construction equipment and excavations, earth moving vehicles, scaffoldings, electrical power lines, and even loss of life to construction workers. The Smart Safety Platform combines Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies, edge computing, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to provide a comprehensive safety management system, providing real-time risk and safety information to safety managers and site operators.
The dynamic nature of construction sites makes it almost impossible to utilize wired internet connectivity. VeeaHubTM Smart Edge Nodes, a key element of the Smart Safety Platform, provide IoT and SD-WAN connectivity, wireless and wired mesh networking, including 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Zigbee, Bluetooth, and LoRaWAN, making deployment as well as re-deployment in these environments very simple. All VeeaHub models also include an edge server and computational resources in order to run applications in a secure virtualized environment with integrated IoT gateway functions and cybersecurity protection and, providing for cost-efficient, easily deployed network elements that create a communications and computing mesh with unparalleled flexibility, scalability, and operational simplicity.
The Veea Edge Platform can address the demand for consuming and interacting with data-in-motion, including from live streaming data, in a very secure manner for a vast range of applications such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Augmented Reality (AR), computer vision, Machine Learning (ML), cognitive computing with AI, wearable communications, cybersecurity, micro-transaction processing, and other technologies that are now driving a massive shift away from solely depending on cloud computing to a hybrid model with edge computing.
Headquartered in New York City, Veea has engineering offices in Iselin, New Jersey (US), and Bath (UK) with certain of its engineering, sales, and support executives and staff located in Boston, San Diego, Seoul, Miami, Paris, and Annecy, France.
