Qualcomm unveils new platform for IoT devices

DUBAI, 9 days ago

Qualcomm Technologies, a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, has launched the Vision Intelligence Platform, featuring its first family of system-on-chips (SoCs) purpose-built for the Internet of Things using advanced 10-nanometer FinFET process technology.

The QCS605 and QCS603 SoCs are engineered to deliver powerful computing for on-device camera processing and machine learning, with exceptional power and thermal efficiency, across a wide range of IoT applications, said a company statement.

The SoCs integrate the company’s most advanced image signal processor (ISP) to date and the Qualcomm Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine, along with a heterogeneous compute architecture including a cutting-edge ARM-based multicore CPU, vector processor and GPU, it said.

The platform also includes Qualcomm Technologies’ advanced camera processing software, machine learning and computer vision software development kits (SDKs), as well as its proven connectivity and security technologies.

The platform is optimised to support exciting new possibilities for industrial and consumer smart security cameras, sports cameras, wearable cameras, virtual reality (VR) 360 and 180 cameras, robotics, smart displays, and more.

Kedacom and Ricoh Theta are planning to develop products based on the Qualcomm Vision Intelligence Platform, it added.
 
Joseph Bousaba, VP, product management, said: “Our goal is to make IoT devices significantly smarter as we help customers bring powerful on-device intelligence, camera processing and security.”

“AI is already enabling cameras with object detection, tracking, classification and facial recognition, robots that avoid obstacles autonomously, and action cameras that learn and generate a video summary of your latest adventure, but this is really just the beginning,” he stated.

“The platform is the culmination of years of advanced research and development that brings together breakthrough advancements in camera, on-device AI and heterogeneous computing,” explained Bousaba.

“The platform is a premier launchpad for manufacturers and developers to create a new world of intelligent IoT devices,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
