Humans use their eyes and brains to see the world around them. Computer vision is the field of artificial intelligence that enables similar capabilities in a camera. Using machine learning and deep learning algorithms and models, cameras can classify and identify objects and their attributes, and react to what they “see.”
Beyond vision, humans intuitively combine sight, hearing, touch, equilibrioception and other senses to apprehend the world around them. AnyConnect Computer Vision supports Sensor Fusion and Data Fusion through sensors like : microphones, thermal imagers, Satellite Positioning Systems, Gyroscopes, CAN buses and much more, to enhance the understanding of a scene, the quality and accuracy of inferences as well as the capabilities of the system.
AnyConnect Smarter Camera Platform enables to deploy, monitor and manage, securely, cloud and edge inference on millions of devices on standard internet connections. Encryption and Access Control native, AnyConnect Smarter Camera platform enables to deploy Neural Networks at the Edge, over the air, to different device with different Neural Network & AI Accelerators in a seamless manner. Instant Connections and Adaptive Streaming enable real time, low latency to the best possible video over wireless networks.
AnyConnect offers inference in the cloud. In this scenario, the camera sends video, audio and data to AnyConnect Cloud Platform for Analysis. Computer Vision algorithms run on these data and provide the required understanding of the scene, subjects & objects. Cloud Inference is a great solution to enable cameras and devices without Neural Network Processing capabilities (AI coprocessor, GPU etc.) to have computer vision. All inference generated are stored in a database and presented in a Dashboard.
Works on any cameras
Data Saver: Sends pictures only
Real Time Notifications
In Edge inference, by opposition to Cloud Inference, the classification/decision of a Neural Network is happening at the edge (typically on cameras). While inferring on a single development board with a Neural Network Accelerator is relatively straightforward, deploying different neural networks, securely, over the air, to millions of different edge devices in the field has a few more orders of magnitude of difficulty.
AnyConnect Smarter Camera Platform enables you to securely deploy, manage and monitor TensorFlow models of neural networks on millions of cameras.
The platform monitors the quality of the inferences and creates new training data in case of inaccurate inferences.
All inferences are recorded in a database and presented in a Dashboard, ready to provide insight . Inferences could also be used to trigger instant notifications as Edge Inferences on the AnyConnect Platform have a very low latency.
AnyConnect Smarter Camera Platform Supports, seamlessly for the user, multiple types of edge Inference Accelerators (GPUs, Intel Movidius, Google Coral Edge TPU and many more). New Neural Networks accelerator can be integrated in a short time upon request. Fog Computing, partial inference at the edge and partial inference in the cloud is supported as well.
