Ananda Roy, Senior Product Manager leading the low-power AI product line at Synaptics, demonstrates the company’s latest edge AI and vision technologies and products at the 2022 Embedded Vision Summit. Specifically, Roy demonstrates overhead people-detection running on the Katana SoC evaluation kit.
The Katana evaluation kit comes with a HiMax camera module. The output of what the Katana SoC sees is displayed on the screen through a Raspberry Pi Pico Streamer. The AI algorithm running on Katana detects the person who walks through the door frame, localizes the person using the coordinates of a bounding box, and tracks the direction of movement.
