See Edge in action



In Hatville’s factories, red hats are built around-the-clock to keep up with demand. Edge computing keeps the line moving, avoiding failures and managing risk.

1Equipment failure prediction

Red Hat Device Edge is used to predict equipment failure to catch issues before they become issues.

2Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES)

Red Hat OpenShift powers the high-availability systems that keep production on schedule.

3Product inspection

Red Hat Device Edge puts AI/ML right on the assembly line, immediately detecting errors in production.

4Autonomous guided Vehicles (AGV)

Red Hat Device Edge navigates AGVs to keep your inventory supply chain moving continuously and efficiently.



Along Hatville’s roads and railways, intermodal sites connect trains and trucks to make a single, fluid supply chain that safely keeps inventory flowing from the source to customers.

1Wayside devices

Red Hat Device Edge keeps remote transportation connected back to base for logistics monitoring, on-board cargo status updates and more.

2Transportation coordination

Red Hat OpenShift can power multi-modal transportation management to create the most efficient scheduling, planning and optimization.

3Safety and security

Red Hat Device Edge can protect people and capital with on-site video AI/ML for fast, private monitoring.



In Hatville’s fedora shop, customers love to try on hats with our augmented reality (AR) mirror - while the business automates and connects the back office and point of sale.

1Back office and inventory

Red Hat OpenShift powers catalog and pricing systems to run the business behind the business.

2Augmented reality

Red Hat Device Edge powers an AR mirror so you can try on every hat in the store, without wearing every hat in the store.

3Point of sale desks

Red Hat Device Edge is used to close the sale and connect directly to the rest of the business.
