Object Detection vs. Localization

Production Updates

Yesterday we kicked off our first large production run of the DepthAI SoM.

Later this week we will be kicking off manufacturing of the remaining hardware:

  • RPi Compute Module Edition
  • RPi HAT Edition
  • USB3 Edition
  • 12MP Color Camera Module
  • 1MP Global Shutter Stereo Camera Modules

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.

To show this clearer, we made a brief animation below:

Anyway, thanks for following our campaign! If you haven't reserved your DepthAI, there's still some time left in the campaign to place your order! And if you have already backed our project, you can help us even more by sharing this campaign with someone who might be interested.

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: RPi HAT Edition

DepthAI HAT for Raspberry Pi (3, 3B+, and 4). Add your choice of 12 MP, 4K video color camera module and/or dual-global-shutter 720p mono camera modules for stereo depth and object localization.


DepthAI: USB3 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.

Support Us

If you don't have an immediate need for DepthAI, but may someday, or want to help us make progress on this depth, AI and tracking platform, please feel free to support us by donating. Thank you! You'll be rewarded with our gratitude and progress updates as the campaign goes on.



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!
