USB3 and SoM PCB Assembly Complete

An update on which PCBAs are finished and which are still being assembled. This year, Chinese New Year is January 18th through February 2nd. Our strategy on fulfillment is (and has been) to conclude all the China-involved production prior to January 11th, doing the remainder of the full-system assembly and test in the United States while China is offline. It looks like we're still on schedule to hit this, but it going to be close! Read the full update.

Goal Adjustment and Production Progress

We're adjusting the goal to account for a couple post-funding cancellations. More importantly, we are making great progress on production so far. The bare PCBs for everything are completed and under assembly now. Check out some pictures of the incoming hardware and bare PCBs! Read the full update.

Everything Ordered

Hi DepthAI Fans! So we ordered the last of everything for our first production run last Friday (December 13th). Read the full update.

Power and Stability Comparison

So we got great news from one of our Alpha testers. They are using the DepthAI: System on Module (SoM) in their own custom board and have reported infinitely better stability and 1W less power use. Read on for details. Read the full update.

Funding Goal Change

We're confident in the success of the future of DepthAI - so we're adjusting our funding goal. Here is why. Read the full update.

New Features

We've been hard at work adding support for various network architectures through our Python API. Check out our progress on object detector models, neural models, and more! Read the full update.

Human Level Perception

So we wanted to share a bit of the background on object detection, our experience with it, and why we made DepthAI to allow object localization. Read the full update.

Object Detection vs. Localization

Out of the questions we've received in the campaign so far, we've realized that we haven't done a great job of showing what object detection is vs. object localization. So we made an animation to clarify! Also, yesterday we kicked off our first large production run of the DepthAI SoM. Read the full update.

Demo with Integrated Raspberry Pi

Today we share some examples of the power and convenience of having an integrated Raspberry Pi in DepthAI. The great thing about having the integrated Raspberry Pi is that it works with so many peripherals cleanly. An example of this is live-demoing DepthAI in Dublin last week, plugging DepthAI directly into the projector for the first time live during the presentation. And it went without a hitch.

Backstory - Commute Guardian

The 'why' of the DepthAI (that satisfyingly rhymes) is we're actually shooting for a final product which we hope will save the lives of people who ride bikes, and help to make bike commuting possible again for many. What we envisioned is a technology-equivalent of a person riding backwards on your bike holding a fog horn and an ambulance-LED strip, who would tap you on the shoulder when they noticed a distracted driver, and would use the LED strip and the horn judiciously to get the attention of distracted drivers - to get them to swerve out of the way. Video demos included! Read the full update.

We're Live!

This campaign is now live! DepthAI is a platform built around the Myriad X to combine depth perception, object detection (neural inference), and object tracking that gives you this power in a simple, easy-to-use Python API. It's a one-stop shop for folks who want to combine and harness the power of AI, depth, and tracking. Read the full update.
