Edge Intelligence Takes Over Smart Camera Systems to Facilitate Seamless Data Transfer

The smart camera system market is largely fragmented since leading players account to only 35-45% of the total market share. This indicates that leading players are facing a tough competition from emerging and prominent players in the global market. On the other hand, companies in the market for smart camera systems are tapping opportunities to make smart homes truly intelligent.

Moreover, proliferation of IoT in smart homes is one of the key drivers contributing to market growth. The application of IoT is expanding at a rapid pace, giving rise to the concept of connected devices such as smart appliances, smart camera systems, and home entertainment systems. However, latency issues and delays caused during the transfer of heavy data from connected devices to remote servers poses as a barrier for companies in the smart camera system market. Hence, companies are increasing R&D in edge analytics and fog computing to make smart systems more intelligent. Edge intelligence is helping users to bring data processing from cloud to the field of smart homes where sensors and devices are being deployed.

Full-feature Software Solutions to Offer Precision in Image Capturing and Data Processing

Apart from innovation in the hardware, advancements in software are transforming the smart camera system market. There is a growing need for real-time adaptation in smart camera systems that overcome limitations of traditional camera systems. Companies are innovating in full-feature solutions that offer precision in data and image capture. For instance, in March 2019, leading telecommunications equipment company Huawei won the Frost & Sullivan 2019 Global Video Surveillance Camera New Product Innovation Award for its innovation in software-defined camera system.

The software component segment is expected to grow aggressively in the smart camera system market. Thus, technology in smart camera systems is evolving from single-feature to full-feature solutions that reduce inaccuracies and offer precision in image capturing and data processing. Companies are increasing efforts to carry out joint data analysis between multiple cameras and the cloud to support practical applications. They are developing systems that are more self-aware, and can easily adapt to changing environmental conditions and gestures.
