New Features

We’ve been hard at work adding support for various network architectures through our Python API.

Object Detector Models

First up, now working, are most/all object detectors. We now have 6x fully tested object detector models (and more are likely to ‘just work’):

  • PASCAL VOC 20-class
  • Pedestrian and Vehicle Detector - ADAS*
  • Pedestrian Detection - ADAS
  • Person Detection - Retail
  • Vehicle Detection - ADAS
  • Vehicle License Plate Detection

*ADAS = Advanced Driver Assistance System

These are all now working through our DepthAI Python API, available on our Github.

Converting your own object detection models to run on DepthAI is also now possible, via the simple one-line conversion.

Neural Models

We have also been able to successfully run the following neural model types, and are now working to integrate parsing of these models’ output formats in Python via the DepthAI API.

  • Object and Action Recognition
  • Human Pose Estimation
  • Image Processing (e.g. style transfer)
  • Re-identification (e.g. recognizing person A from two separate/disparate camera feeds)
  • Text Recognition

In all of these cases, we have tested to find these to run properly through initial/prototype parsing/display of the results from DepthAI. We’re now cleaning up these and writing the example Python code to parse the output these types of models. These cleaned up examples will be added to our Github when complete.

Below is an example trying out facial landmark detection:

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.

720p, 120 Hz Global Shutter Modular Stereo Camera Pair



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!
