Edge devices are the final point of contact for data from the cloud to the end user. An edge node is a physical device with a Linux or equivalent operating system that can serve data to an end user from the edge.
In Darcy Cloud , nodes are edge devices that run Darcy Agents. Ultimately, we want to deploy apps to these nodes to put them to work.
Best AI performance
We recommend the following components for processing real-time video at the edge with Darcy AI:
|Dev Board||Video||Power||AI Acceleration|
|Raspberry Pi4||Any Pi4 camera||5.1V * 3.5A power||Coral Accelerator|
|Learn More||Learn More||Learn More||Learn More|
The Google Coral Dev board should also offer good AI performance but hasn’t been tested with Darcy AI yet.
More compatible edge boards
Darcy Cloud is compatible with many Linux edge boards:
- Raspberry Pi 3 or 4
- Asus Tinker
- Nvidia Jetson Nano
- more to come…
Supported Operating Systems
- Raspbian Buster
- Ubuntu 16.04+
- Debian 10+
If you don’t have any edge hardware yet, you can create a virtual node using Darcy Cloud or create a VM in the Cloud or a Vagrant image running on your laptop and run the node installation script.
