AI Camera Dev Kit Designed for Accelerating AI Vision Prototyping Features NVIDIA Jetson Nano Module
Edge computing expert, ADLINK Technology, recently announced a new AI camera development kit designed for easy and accelerated AI vision prototyping. It is aimed at helping AI vision developers quickly develop proof-of-concept applications.
The pocket-sized vision developer kit is powered by an NVIDIA Jetson Nano module and equipped with a variety of peripherals alongside an 8MP color camera sensor with lens and industrial digital I/O to aid development start-up. There’s a Gigabit Ethernet port, a microSD memory card with Linux OS, and a USB Type C port for easy powering, data transmission, keyboard or mouse connection, and video. There’s also a microUSB port, as well as validated software drivers to get you started quickly with your computer vision applications.
Today’s market trend is to start project development from a developer kit that can quickly help developers test and demonstrate their concept,” said Kevin Hsu, a senior product manager at ADLINK. “Targeted for the booming AI vision market, ADLINK provides an image sensor integrated AI camera developer kit based on our popular NEON series AI smart camera. The AI Camera Dev Kit eliminates tedious integration effort with its built-in no-code GUI software (EVA) and two AI applications with sample code. This kit enables users to start their AI vision PoC in just five minutes.
The ADLINK EVA (edge vision analytics) software is the company’s exclusive little or no code GUI-based development environment with everything you need to build a PoC without AI expertise. The development kit is also compatible with the popular V4L2 video interface and leverages the company’s NEON series AI smart camera for a wide coverage of AI vision applications.
