Cartesiam new release of NanoEdge AI studio V1.2.1 brings support of STMicroelectronics Discovery kit and associated newly release function pack. It enables users to quickly build, train, and deploy intelligent edge devices for industrial condition monitoring.

Toulon (France), July 28th 2020: Cartesiam, a global leader in Edge AI technology and STMicroelectronics AI Partner, announce the immediate availability of NanoEdge™ AI Studio version 1.2.1. This new version is announced in partnership with STMicroelectronics who has released a free STM32 software function pack dedicated to NanoEdge AI Studio to let users quickly build, train, and deploy intelligent edge devices for industrial condition monitoring using a microcontroller Discovery kit and Cartesiam NanoEdge AI Studio v1.2.1

In this new version, users will be able to select the STMicroelectronics discovery kit (STM32L562QE-DK-Cortex-M33) as an additional development board target. Several other enhancements have been integrated in this release in terms of user experience or additional features.

Simultaneously, STMicroelectronics announces they have developed in conjunction with machine-learning expert and ST Authorized AI Partner Cartesiam, the FP-AI-NANOEDG1 software pack that contains all the necessary drivers, middleware, documentation, and sample code to capture sensor data, integrate, and run Cartesiam’s NanoEdge libraries. Users without AI skills can quickly create and export custom machine-learning libraries for their applications using Cartesiam’s NanoEdge™ AI Studio tool, free of charge for STM32 development boards.

The straightforward methodology established with Cartesiam uses industrial-grade sensors on-board a Discovery kit such as the STM32L562E-DK to capture vibration data from the monitored equipment both in normal operating modes and under induced abnormal conditions. Software to configure and acquire sensor data is included in the function pack. NanoEdge AI Studio analyzes the benchmark data and selects pre-compiled algorithms from over 500 million possible combinations to create optimized libraries for training and inference at the Edge. The function-pack software provides stubs for the libraries that can be easily replaced for simple embedding in the application. Once deployed, the device can learn the normal pattern of the operating mode locally during the initial installation phase as well as during the lifetime of the equipment, as the function pack permits switching between learning and monitoring modes.

Using the Discovery kit to acquire data, generate, train, and monitor the solution, leveraging free tools and software, and the support of the STM32 ecosystem, developers can quickly create a proof-of-concept model at low cost and easily port the application to other STM32 microcontrollers

“Unlike alternatives that rely on AI in the cloud, the solution allows equipment owners greater control over potentially sensitive information by processing all processes an data without any connection to a cloud”

The FP-AI-NANOEDG1 function pack is available now at www.st.com, free of charge. The STM32L562E-DK Discovery kit contains an STM32L562QEI6QU ultra-low-power microcontroller, an iNEMO™ 3D accelerometer and 3D gyroscope, as well as two MEMS microphones, a 240×240 color TFT-LCD module, and on-board STLINK-V3E debugger/programmer. The price for the Discovery kit is $76.00, and it is available from http://www.st.com or distributors.
