congatec will be exhibiting at Japan IoT/M2M Expo (booth 10-42 West Hall 2, 1F), showcasing its latest demo platforms for next-generation Artificial Intelligence (AI) based embedded vision systems. Designed in cooperation with partners including NXP Semiconductors, Intel, Basler, and Real-Time Systems, the platforms address various AI-based embedded vision applications.

The devices integrate AI and deep learning as well as camera technologies such as MIPI and real-time hypervisor technologies in order to consolidate real-time control and smart camera analytics on one single platform. The demo system designed in cooperation with Intel and Real-Time Systems targets the next generation of vision-based collaborative systems using situational awareness with deep learning-based AI algorithms. 

Based on a COM Express Type 6 module with Intel Xeon E2 processor, the system integrates three preconfigured virtual machines. One operates a Basler vision camera, with vision-based object recognition running on Linux via the Intel OpenVino software, with AI algorithms executed on an Intel Arria 10 FPGA card from Refexces. Another partition hosts a gateway for secure IoT connectivity. 

congatec will also show a face-recognition demo system for applications needing real-time connectivity to a central database of images to identify people. The demo is based on Basler's dart camera series with USB 3.0 and a conga-PA5 Pico-ITX board with 5th generation Intel Atom, Celeron or Pentium processors.
