Vision AI Development Kit

A product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Purchase from Arrow Electronics

This Azure IoT Starter kit is a vision AI developer kit for running artificial intelligence models on devices at the intelligent edge. It is a reference design for IoT products like home monitoring cameras, enterprise security cameras and smart home devices with built-in vision AI.

Vision AI Development Kit, built on the Qualcomm Vision Intelligence 300 Platform and Microsoft AzureVision AI Development Kit, built on the Qualcomm Vision Intelligence 300 Platform and Microsoft Azure

The Vision AI Development Kit is built around the Qualcomm Vision Intelligence 300 Platform and includes camera processing software, hardware-accelerated inferencing of AI models, and SDKs for machine learning and computer vision. Developers can use the kit to prototype products in applications like industrial safety, manufacturing, logistics, retail, and home and enterprise security.

Inside the kit, the Microsoft Azure IoT Edge runtime and the Qualcomm Neural Processing SDK for AI make it easy to take models trained in the cloud and run hardware-accelerated inference at the intelligent edge. The kit runs models built using Microsoft Azure Machine Learning (AML). It also runs other Azure services like Azure Stream Analytics, Azure Functions, Azure Cognitive Services and Azure SQL Server for edge analytics and AI processing.

With the Vision AI Development Kit, you can easily combine the Azure Machine Learning service from Microsoft and the edge computing power of the Vision Intelligence Platform from Qualcomm Technologies.
