Hitachi Power Solutions and Eurotech Agreement on Joint Development of Predictive Diagnostics System "HiPAMPS-Edge" in Edge Computing Environment

Tokyo, June 29, 2016 - Hitachi Power Solutions Co., Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., and Eurotech S.p.A. of Italy today announced that they have concluded an agreement to jointly develop HiPAMPS-Edge, which incorporates edge computing technology from Eurotech, into Hitachi Power Solutions' HiPAMPS predictive diagnostics system to improve its real-time performance. This will involve porting the HiPAMPS predictive diagnostics engine (including a learning function) to an IoT (Internet of Things) gateway from Eurotech, to develop a service that complements existing server- and cloud-based predictive diagnostics by being able to perform simple predictive diagnostics on gateways located at the site where the machinery is installed. This service is scheduled to be launched in the global marketplace, including Japan, in October 2016.
