This is CogniPoint™
PointGrab’s CogniPoint™ embedded-analytics sensors bring deep-learning analytics to today’s highly-connected IoT building-automation systems.
CogniPoint™ is a groundbreaking embedded-analytics sensing solution for building automation, extracting the most important information about how and where occupants are using the building. It’s comprised of highly intelligent sensors and building energy management systems, and provides embedded-analytics for tracking human activity across the entire space of the building.
The CogniPoint™ sensor is a miniature network-connected sensing device, running state-of–the-art deep-learning algorithms on a low-cost embedded ARM-based processor. It is primarily designed for indoor occupant analytics and energy savings in commercial buildings, providing unprecedented precision in the detection of occupants’ locations, count, and movements, as well as precise reading of ambient energy efficient lighting system and motion sensing.
Consistent with edge computing approach, the CogniPoint™ sensor can work as a standalone device or be incorporated into other devices such as thermostats or lighting fixtures. It is an intelligent building sensor that performs all analytics internally, so images are never stored or transmitted over the network, fully protecting occupants’ privacy.The product is highly secured and utilizes FIPS-140-2 compliant security functions. The CogniPoint supports PoE, ZigBee and WiFi connectivity, and is powered by either PoE, AC or DC power.
Due to its processing capability and architecture, CogniPoint™ can also function as a sensor hub, controlling other sensors measuring temperature, humidity and more. PointGrab’s management software package aggregates the data from the individual smart lighting sensors, monitors and maintains sensor operations, and delivers the information to various building management systems including lighting, HVAC, safety, security and facility management.
