We have been partnering with various IoT technology platforms to customize development kits and boards for developers looking to prototype and build applications. Earlier this year, we teamed up with the Samsung ARTIK™ IoT Platform to launch the Eagleye 530s. It’shigh-performance and production-ready development kit that incorporates the Samsung ARTIK™ 530s 1GB module and a 40-pin GPIO interface.
Eagleye 530s supports full HDMI, MIPI camera interface, video, audio media, and the Zigbee wireless protocol, making it suitable for IoT gateway applications. The board enables Samsung ARTIK developers to easily tap into the powerful Raspberry Pi ecosystem, and design with sensors, voice recognition, relays, GPS, cellular connectivity, and more.
More recently, the team showed off an upgraded version of the demo at IoT World in Santa Clara. They used an Eagleye 530s, an OV5640 5M Auto Focus USB Camera, and a touchscreen to create a security system for families.
When a person comes to the touchscreen, he/she could follow the instructions on the screen to take a selfie, and the photo will be uploaded to the facial recognition cloud service — Kairos. The system will then detect if the person matches with the already enrolled faces.
The system could be connected to a door latches, allowing doors to be automatically unlocked when a family member is detected. This would be a solution suitable for consumers of smart home / building technologies.
