JeVois based in Los Angeles California have created a new open source quad core smartphone machine vision camera aptly named the JeVois which they have launched via Kickstarter this month to raise the $50,000 they require to take the project into production.
The new machine vision camera has been specifically designed to easily add extra functionality to your project and effortlessly adds powerful machine vision to projects powered by Arduino, desktop PCs and Raspberry Pi mini PCs.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about JeVois what the new Smart machine vision camera can add to your project. Pledges are available for barebone kits starting at $45 with shipping expected to take place during February 2017. The creators of the new machine vision camera explain a little more about its inspiration and design.
Open-source machine vision finally ready for prime-time in all your projects! JeVois = video sensor + quad-core CPU + USB video + serial port, all in a tiny, self-contained package (28 cc or 1.7 cubic inches). Insert a microSD card loaded with the provided open-source machine vision algorithms (including OpenCV 3.1 and many others), connect to your desktop, laptop, and/or Arduino, and give your projects the sense of sight immediately.
JeVois started as an educational project, to encourage the study of machine vision, computational neuroscience, and machine learning as part of introductory programming and robotics courses at all levels (from K-12 to Ph.D.). At present, these courses often lack a machine vision component. This is mainly, we believe, because there is no simple machine vision device one can use together with the Raspberry Pi, Arduino, or similar device used in these courses.
JeVois aims to fill this gap by providing a self-contained, configurable machine vision engine that can deliver both visual outputs of how it is analyzing what it sees (useful to understand the algorithms), and text outputs over a serial link that describe what it has found (useful to send to a micro-controller that can control a robot).
