Tokyo / Singapore (Nov. 9, 2022) — Asteria Corporation (Japan listed, Security Code: 3853) and Singapore-based IT solutions provider Embrio Enterprises Pte Ltd today announced a reseller agreement to allow Embrio Enterprises to provide Asteria’s Gravio edge computing-based IoT platform in the Southeast Asia market. This is the first such partnership in the region for Gravio. Under the partnership, Embrio Enterprises has bundled Gravio as part of its Smart Visitor Management system, Entrée, and began offering the solution package on Nov. 9 mainly targeting physical event organizers.
Embrio develops and provides IT solutions aimed at promoting digital transformation in business, including in the smart building domain*, to Singapore-based clients. As demand for contactless visitor management has increased during the pandemic, inquiries for Entrée, Embrio’s visitor management system using smartphones and QR codes, have doubled compared with the pre-pandemic period. Hence Embrio sought to further improve the efficiency of the visitor management system and to step up infection control measures for face-to-face events and began considering the development of solutions equipped with cutting-edge technologies.
Embrio then turned its focus on Gravio, which enables cameras to have computer vision capabilities and manages IoT devices altogether without coding, and smoothly obtains data from sensors. This led Embrio to sign a reseller agreement to provide Entrée and Gravio solution package, which leverages visitor check-in data derived from Entrée and congestion-related data from computer vision-enabled cameras and IoT devices installed at event entrances.
The solution package enables event organizers to visualize the visitor flow by combining visitor check-in data from Entrée and the number of people awaiting entry counted near entrances acquired through computer vision-enabled cameras, and the CO2 levels collected by sensors. Based on these data, event staff can direct visitors to less crowded entrances, allowing for a smoother check-in with Entrée. This helps to prevent crowding at entrances and run events that have an infection control measure in place at a time when economic activity around the world is rebounding from the pandemic.
On Nov. 9, Embrio began offering the solution package in Southeast Asia, mainly Singapore. Besides physical events, Embrio and Asteria intend to expand the scope of their application to areas that require Gravio’s unique features such as smart building projects and connectivity between various devices or software.
Asteria plans to increase the number of partners abroad, aiming to expand the global operations of Gravio.
* : Buildings that use information and communications technology-based systems and services to optimize the facility’s performance
** : Other than physical events, Embrio can propose Entrée and Gravio solution packages according to the specific needs of customers, such as smart building projects
*** : Deployment and integration fees are not included
