Machine learning specialist Edge Impulse has announced a partnership with Seeed Studio to bring support for the Grove Vision AI Module to Edge Impulse Studio and the Edge Impulse software development kit (SDK) — with immediate availability.
"Edge Impulse and Seeed have partnered together to support Seeed's Grove Vision AI Module with Edge Impulse," explains Edge Impulse's Joshua Buck, "enabling users to now acquire, develop, and deploy vision-based ML applications with Edge Impulse Studio and Edge Impulse SDK."
Launched back in August last year, the Grove Vision AI Module is built around an Omnivision OV2640 camera sensor with a 1600×1200 UXGA resolution and a low-power Himax HX6537-A processor running at 400MHz. Roughly the size of your thumb, the gadget is designed for tinyML on-device computer vision processing — and comes pre-loaded with three image classification algorithms.
Those three algorithms can now be extended using the Edge Impulse SDK or beginner-friendly Edge Impulse Studio, the companies have confirmed. Once connected over USB, the Grove Vision AI Module shows up as a compatible device in Edge Impulse Studio and allows for image capture for training then deployment of a trained model directly to-device.
Instructions on getting started with Edge Impulse on the Seeed Grove Vision AI Module are available on the Edge Impulse website.
