AI + IoT = AIoT: Artificial Intelligence of Things, Unity Board Pro AIoT Platform is where Superpowers of Innovation – Artificial Intelligence meet the Internet of Things (IoT).
By 2025, there’s projected to be 42 billion IoT-connected devices globally. It is only natural that as these device numbers grow, the swaths of data will too. That’s where AI steps in—lending its learning capabilities to the connectivity of the IoT. Without AI, IoT would have limited value. AI can multiply the value of IoT; conversely, IoT can promote the learning and intelligence of AI.
An important facet of the Unity Board Pro AIoT Platform is AI being done on the board in-situ, i.e. at the edge or Edge Computing.
By linking IoT with AI and machine learning, we can draw the right conclusions from huge quantities of data and react to these data in seconds.
Unity Board Pro AIoT Platform is an Arduino compatible, affordable development board that combines an ESP32-CAM Module. It still retains all the previous features of Unity Board while adding some powerful new features & specifications:
Onboard ESP32-Cam Module, 32-bit CPU @160MHz clock speed, computing power up to 600 DMIPS
Image Classification using Machine Learning
Can be widely used for intelligent IoT applications such as wireless video monitoring
Can run OpenCV as a standalone device
Capable of doing on-device machine learning tasks like image classification, person detection, etc
