Hardware starter Xnor has created a new wireless AI camera that is capable of running solar power enabling it to transmit data almost indefinitely. The prototype AI camera requires no battery or external power source and is capable of capturing imagery at a resolution of 320 x 320 pixels.
On board a FGPA chip handles processing, and is loaded with a state of the art object recognition algorithm and is already compatible with a few different low energy wireless communication protocols. Mohammad Rastegari, Xnor’s CTO explains a little more : “We’re investigating several use-cases for these devices right now. From large-scale civilian projects, to monitoring inside the cabins of autonomous cars, to attaching cameras to drones.” Check out the videos below to learn more.
“Xnor’s award winning technology introduced a novel network architecture designed for the edge. Xnor builds on top of YOLO and other state-of-the-art AI innovations to build custom models of unparalleled efficiency and accuracy, and optimized by being generated using your data and tuned for your hardware.”
