WHAT ARE DRAGONFLY'S ARCHITECTURES?

Dragonfly is a flexible technology that can work on multiple Operating Systems and is available under different architectures.
Let's explore them together.

  • One central server per-location
  • Local WLAN connection
  • Computing on board, no central server
  • No WLAN connection needed

LOCAL SERVER

How does the Local Server Installation work?

Requirements

WLAN / Local wireless Connection

2 Mbps/device

Camera

A camera on board the device

Local Server

Provided by Onit

Make sure that:

  • The camera has a wide angle (130°-180°)
  • It can stream a VGA video (640×480) to Onit’s server.

The Local Server architecture requires:

And a WLAN or local wireless connection (internet access not needed).

In addition, a Server has to be available on site.

Usually Onit provides this server pre-configured. For instance, a server with 2 devices connected at the same time, in a venue of 10,000 sqm, would require a quad-core CPU like an i7-8th gen or better, 8 GB or RAM, 120 GB SSD.

ON BOARD PROCESSING

How does the On Board Processing work?

Requirements

Camera

A camera on board of the device

Computing Unit

A CPU on board of the device

Is there already a camera on board of the device (robot, drone, forklift, AGV...)?​

YES

Make sure that:

  • The camera has a wide angle (130°-180°)
  • It can stream a VGA video (640×480) to the board Computing Unit.
Then, contact us to get a step by step guide to get started.

NO

Purchase one of our recommended cameras.
