At a time when AI is becoming accessible to everyone, the Internet of Things (IoT) is propelling the movement of artificial intelligence to endpoint devices. Consequently, more and more AIoT devices with edge computing capabilities are emerging, and edge applications related to vision, video, voice, and audio are gaining significant attentions. The conventional Internet of Things collects data through cameras, sensors, readers and other input devices, and transmits raw data to the cloud for further analysis. As one can imagine, handling such a huge amount of data transmission requires high energy consumption, and stimulatingly brings higher security risks. Himax’s WiseEyeTM ultralow power AI processor is meticulously designed to address all these challenges within constrained resources in computing power, embedded memory and power supply.
WiseEye is well adapted to a wide range of computer vision applications that enable seamless interaction between the digital and physical worlds. The developed solutions have been proven in notebook, smart meter reading, security monitoring, smart office, smart home, medical assistance, just name a few.
