If data is the new oil, then we are the pump-jack.
We have strategically aligned with Nvidia. As Jetson Ecosystem Partners, we have built on the massive ecosystem and software tools that Nvidia has invested in for over a decade. Our devices are generalists. Our software meshes with Nvidia Deepstream, CUDA, and can ship with Jetpack.
We help data utilities and cloud providers sample visual data without having to send it all up to the cloud. We also skip the on-prem server because the server is inside of each camera.
Boulder AI makes great hardware for the real world, but we also make all of the software that connects devices to the cloud. From asset management, zero network config, over the air updates, and agnostic IoT to cloud, the software is just as innovative as the hardware.
