"Edge computing software for today's data hungry world"

In today's increasingly data-hungry world, the bottleneck preventing the large-scale adoption of edge solutions is the processing of large data volumes on resource-limited devices.

Inspired by the fastest software technologies in the world: high frequency trading, Klepsydra has developed, a lightweight software for embedded systems, which is capable of boosting data processing and reducing power consumption of the board.

As usability and interoperability is embedded by design, Klepsydra's platform is an easy-touse, accessible framework aimed at enabling the next generation of high-performance space applications.
