We’ve all seen the blurry digital surveillance videos of someone committing a crime. However, because of the poor video quality or lack of intelligence in the security system, the perpetrator is often never identified. Small and medium-sized businesses and homeowners now want to see—clearly—what’s going on around them 24x7. They need your expertise to build an intelligent solution to help traditional security and surveillance systems watch over multiple locations simultaneously using remote cameras and centrally located monitors.
Carvana has rebuilt the car delivery process by building a fleet of car vending machine towers at its dealerships that use robotic platforms to retrieve a purchased car for a buyer.

In the last year, 3D printers have migrated out of the hobbyist and maker space and into industrial applications, being put to use in manufacturing with made-to-order parts production. High-end 3D printers have been used to fabricate everything from orchestra instruments to 3D printed cars. Now, the feverish market is in healthcare, where 3D prosthetics and medical devices are poised to cut costs and improve patient care.
Intel NUC for digital security and surveillance (DSS) solution combines the power of Intel Solid State Drives (Intel SSD) with computer vision software from Sighthound for an affordable video analytics system that can mimic the human eye.  
Never has there been a more urgent need for comprehensive security and surveillance solutions. No one can be everywhere and see everything going on around them.
Organizations of all types are flooded with data. Savvy businesses, government agencies and public entities have figured out how to not only manage the flow of structured and unstructured data, but also use analytics to pull actionable insight from data better decisions.
