Brandon Gilles, CEO of Luxonis, demonstrates the company’s latest edge AI and vision technologies and products at the 2021 Embedded Vision Summit. Specifically, Gilles demonstrates spatial artificial intelligence (AI) and computer vision (CV) for human/machine safety.
In situations where people need to interact with potentially dangerous equipment, it is often not possible to physically guard or “dumb-guard” (e.g., with sonar or laser, for example) the equipment. In such cases, you need to discern not just the presence of an object in the equipment’s “red zone,” but also what that object is; some things (wooden boards with a saw, for example) should be there, while some things (human limbs, for example) shouldn’t be. Embedded spatial artificial intelligence and computer vision, as demonstrated in this video, enables such machines to intelligently perceive objects so that they can smart-guard to protect people while not adversely impacting normal operation.
