Solution promises for industrial machine vision AI at the edge.

ADLINK joins Intel and Arrow Electronics to launch the Vizi-AI kit, which includes an Intel Atom-based SMARC computer module with Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit and ADLINK Edge software. The dekvit is now available exclusively through Arrow Electronics in the North America and EMEA regions.  ADLINK previewed Vizi-AI at Embedded World in February where it was awarded Best in Show for AI and machine learning by Embedded Computing Design.

Developers can connect Vizi-AI to different image-capture devices and then deploy and improve machine-learning models to harness insight from vision data to optimize operational decision-making, according to its maker. Vizi-AI includes a range of pre-built OpenVINO compatible machine-learning models that can be used straight out of the box.

The Vizi-AI devkit includes:

  • Intel Atom-based SMARC computer module with Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU and 40 pin connector

  • Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit, which optimizes deep learning workloads across Intel architecture−including accelerators−and streamlines deployments from the edge to the cloud

  • ADLINK Edge software that provides enhanced functionality of OpenVINO through the ADLINK Data River, enabling data to flow freely and securely

  • ADLINK Edge profile builder which provides an intuitive user experience to manage devices and applications

  • ADLINK Edge model manager that enables users to add their own models to a pre-loaded selection for easy deployment
