Human Level Perception

Hi everyone,

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.

Long-story short, object detection seems like all you would need - until you start working with the physical world. Then you quickly realize it falls short, unless you can somehow work in a constrained, pre-calibrated environment.

That’s where DepthAI comes in. Boom. Object Localization - showing you what the object is, where it is, in physical coordinates (i.e. that apple is 4 feet in front of me, 3 inches above me, and 5 inches to the left) and all in real time. And oh by the way, the neural model says that it’s ripe and ready to pick. "Robotic arm, grab it at those coordinates."

Or, you can tell where the car is relative to the camera, what the license plate is, and how fast the car is going (and it’s full 3D trajectory, without having to pre-calibrate the scene, etc.)

Product Choices


DepthAI: RPi Compute Module Edition

Complete DepthAI system including Raspberry Pi Compute Module, microSD card pre-loaded with Raspbian and DepthAI Python interface. Boots up running object localization demo. Just connect to power and an HDMI display.


DepthAI: USB3 Onboard Camera Edition

This DepthAI variant interfaces over USB3C to the host, allowing use with your (embedded) host platform of choice, including the Raspberry Pi and other popular embedded hosts.


DepthAI: USB3 FFC Edition

DepthAI for the host of your choice. Runs on anything that runs OpenVINO (a lot of things), including Mac OS X, Linux (Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04, CentOS, Yocto), and Windows 10.


DepthAI: System on Module

Allows you to integrate the power of DepthAI into your own products. Supports 3 cameras total; dual 720p, 120 Hz Global Shutter and one 4K, 60 Hz Color connected through a 100-pin board-to-board connector. All power conditioning/sequencing, clock synthesis for the Myriad and the cameras, and boot sequencing is included in the module. Just provide 5 V power and physical connections to cameras.

Brandon quit his job at Ubiquiti leading the UniFi team in order to focus on embedded machine learning and computer vision. He misses the UniFi team. But he just had to try this, as he thinks it's the future!
