Perception Box
Platform as a Service Offering
The SWARM Perception Box is a managed black box, meaning you do not need to manage hardware/OS/driver/security patches, but you also cannot access the system.
For getting started, you require the following 3 Steps:

1. Installation

Below you can find instructions on how to install the specific products we are offering. Additional requirements for specific use cases, can be found in the Use Case Section of our Documentation.
