Lesson #5: Edge Computing

While there are many benefits to cloud-based image processing, it can also increase latency, network traffic, and pose privacy and security risks. Using edge computing to process data closer to the source avoids these issues. In this lesson we provide a brief overview of edge and fog computing, when to use them, and how FLIR cameras and Spinnaker SDK support these network models.
