To celebrate OpenCV’s 20th anniversary the development team have created an open source spatial AI system in the form of the aptly named OpenCV AI Kit (OAK). OAK is and MIT-licensed open source software and Myriad X-based hardware solution for computer vision at any scale. OAK consists of the OAK API software and two different types of hardware: OAK-1 and OAK-D. Early bird pledges are available from $99 or roughly £78 and worldwide shipping is expected to take place before the end of the year.
“OAK are tiny artificial intelligence (AI) and computer vision (CV) powerhouses, with OAK-D providing spatial AI leveraging stereo depth in addition to the 4K/30 12MP camera that both models share. They are also both absurdly easy to use. Up and running in under 30 seconds, OAK-1 and OAK-D allow anyone to access this power: hobbyists, researchers, and professionals alike. Once you’re done tinkering, OAK’s modular, FCC/CE-approved, open-source hardware ecosystem affords direct integration into your products.”
“OAK is a modular, open-source ecosystem composed of MIT-licensed hardware, software, and AI training – that allows you to embed the super-power of spatial AI plus accelerated computer vision functions into your product. OAK provides in a single, cohesive solution what would otherwise require cobbling together disparate hardware and software components. Both OAK modules are also available in 3 packs and 10 packs. All backers will be able to add additional modules, and other add-ons, to their pledge in our post-campaign backer management system.”
