Brandon Gilles, CEO of Luxonis, presents the “DepthAI: Embedded, Performant Spatial AI and Computer Vision” tutorial at the May 2021 Embedded Vision Summit.
Performant spatial AI and CV enables human-like perception and real-time interaction with the world. But embedding performant spatial AI and CV into actual products is difficult, costly and time-consuming. DepthAI makes building products with these capabilities fast, easy, and flexible. DepthAI is a platform—a complete ecosystem of custom hardware, firmware, software and AI training—that enables neural inference, depth vision, and hardware-accelerated computer vision functions into an easy-to-use solution.
DepthAI, as described by Gilles in this presentation, includes integrations with ROS, Python and C++. It is provided under the permissive MIT open source license, so you can use all of these functionalities royalty-free and in closed-source products and projects. DepthAI supports USB (2 and 3), SPI and in 2 months, Ethernet/POE (Gigabit), UART and I2C interfaces. It works with any operating system (Linux, macOS, Windows, FreeRTOS, Zephyr) and with any bare-metal system that can run C++. DepthAI can also run completely standalone, with no other processor involved, using our Gen2 Pipeline Builder and onboard Python interpreter.
