Edge nodes

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:

Note: The Google Coral Dev board should also offer good AI performance but hasn’t been tested with Darcy AI yet.

FIXME: ^^ is this correct?
