Numurus helps companies reduce the cost, time, and risks of bringing Edge AI and robotic solutions to market through NEPI, an open-source Linux software distribution for smart devices.
Our NEPI software subscription offering launched in the summer of 2022 with the first subscription customer in place.
Robotic, smart sensing, and AI solution providers
Problem or Opportunity
Companies waste a lot of time and money developing the low-level middleware for their robotic or smart sensing solution from scratch. This work is time-consuming and distracts from working on the end product.
Many companies also lack the full skill sets in house-in house and need to hire additional developers to support these non-core technologies.
Solution (product or service)
NEPI, an open-source Linux software distribution for Edge AI and robotic applications, allows engineering teams to focus on the end solution by offloading low-level middleware development. NEPI provides the underlying middleware solution with sensor drivers, abstracted data interfaces, Edge AI management tools, remote user interfaces, communication drivers, ROS-based connectivity and more. NEPI simplifies the integration of disparate complex software into a single commercial offering that enables solution developers and integrators to bring smart products to the market faster.
Currently, no commercial robotics focused operating systems exist. Companies are repurposing stock operating systems and building all the robotic middleware in-house.
-Can cost over $1 million and take years to develop
-Requires substantial resources focused on non-core technologies
-Distracts development teams from focusing on their end-product solution
Advantages or differentiators
With NEPI, a licensed Linux distribution that combines robotic software into a single commercial offering, developers can save millions of dollars in development and get products to market faster.
NEPI open-source Linux distribution licensed to robotic, sensor, and AI solution companies for up to $20,000 per year per product line. Integration and customization support provided by Numurus' professional services team on a per hour rate.
Sell NEPI software subscription licenses to OEM developers along with professional support and customization services. Connect with customers through direct interactions or through channel partners such as GPU platform and AI model solution providers.
