For the VIA Edge AI Developer Kit, we have carefully selected and tested all its hardware components to ensure fast and easy assembly as well as the highest levels of quality, reliability, and performance.
If you’re attending the Embedded Vision Summit 2018 in Santa Clara this week, please feel free to stop by and see us at booth number 609. We will have all our latest Computer Vision solutions on display, including the VIA Smart Facial Recognition System, the VIA Mobile360 License Plate Recognition System, and VIA Mobile360 ADAS.
Taking my first ever ride on a self-driving EV bus was by far the biggest highlight of my trip to China. Doubly so because we provided the brains of the vehicle in the form of a VIA Mobile360 system that our engineers customized to meet the specific needs of our partner, Enchi Auto.
A 1200km trip in three days from Ningbo to Nanjing, Huia’an, Huzhou, and finally Shanghai bears no comparison to the Long March despite what my back is telling me, but it gave me a tantalizing glimpse of how China’s third-tier cities are being developed.
If it’s Friday I must be in Nanjing, literally the southern capital of China. A hipsterish boutique hotel called the Metropolo with self-described “sassy” rooms was my home from home here. At only CNY280 per night, it was quite a steal. Despite a distinct lack of sass, the room’s excellent facilities provided plenty of comfort for my aching back.
It’s a pity I won’t have any time to poke around the cultural delights of Ningbo during my flying visit here. This ancient port city 220km from Shanghai has a history that dates back nearly 5,000 years and features the oldest private library in China and a rather magnificent drum tower.
How will the home security camera market develop over the next few years? This is a question I’ve been thinking about a lot during the preparations for the launch of our new VPai Home turnkey platforms at the Hong Kong Consumer Electronics and Mobile Electronics shows. Here are some thoughts on this topic.
As the wonderful Stacey Higginbottom pointed out in a recent article on her excellent blog, it can be all too easy for startups to underestimate the challenges involved in bringing a home security camera or IoT device to market.
Here’s a photo of the latest VPai Home models that we displayed at the Hong Kong Consumer Electronics Fair last week. In addition to the VPai Home Smart Security IP Camera that we announced at CES in January, they included our new smart doorbell and panoramic IP camera. Ten of our partners demonstrated the devices at their booths, attracting an enthusiastic response from visitors to the show.
We have an extended five-day break here in Taiwan to mark the Tomb-Sweeping Festival. A wonderful time indeed, particularly given the glorious spring-time weather.
