Grove Vision AI Module

Grove Vision AI Module

R 768.47



The module features a compact AI-powered OV 2640 camera sensor embedded with Edge Machine Learning algorithms and can be easily deployed with simple clicks. It is a small and great assistant for various object detection projects and can be customized based on different needs. Just imagine endowing devices with vision through a tiny sensor.

An artificial Intelligence camera (AI camera) is an enhanced camera powered by a built-in Edge Machine Learning algorithm, smartly processing with computational photography to perform enhanced object detection in real time. It has been widely used in smartphones for face recognition, edge devices for wildlife detection, and other Edge Intelligence applications.

This compact camera sensor will be the perfect module for you to get started with the AI-powered camera. It is installed with one pre-trained model that allows you to detect human faces. Furthermore, it has been installed with three ML classification algorithms for model recognition, which allows you to freely develop the models for detecting different objects and directly apply them to your projects.

Launched by Seeed Studio, the IoT hardware enabler, the sensor includes two typical IoT modules: a digital microphone and a 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), for your further usage of edge AI. The official software is still under development and will be published in a short term.
