Avnet Demonstration of Lighting-fast Stereo Facial Recognition with NXP’s i.MX 8M Plus

Monica Houston, Technical Marketing Manager at Avnet, demonstrates the company’s latest edge AI and vision technologies and products at the 2022 Embedded Vision Summit. Specifically, Houston demonstrates a stereo facial recognition application running on Avnet’s Edge AI Development Kit.

The kit is based on a production-ready SMARC module from Avnet Embedded and uses NXP’s i.MX 8M Plus MCU with on-chip neural processing unit (NPU). The dual-camera sensor included in the kit feeds a ResNet model running on the NPU to perform face detection and then calculates the distance from the camera using an OpenCV algorithm.

Here you’ll find a wealth of practical technical insights and expert advice to help you bring AI and visual intelligence into your products without flying blind.
