AAEON and Aotu.ai announce the release of the UPX-Edge BrainFrame Dev Kit, putting the BrainFrame software from Aotu.ai on AAEON and UP-Board's Intel based platform solution.

AAEON and AOTU.AI announced the launch of the BrainFrame Edge AI Developers Kit (DevKit) on an Intel AI platform for IoT that will allow developers and system integrators to create and deploy Smart Vision applications.

AAEON's fanless industrial computer is powered by 8th Generation Intel Core i5 Processors and Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU and pre-installed with the Aotu.ai BrainFrame Smart Vision platform.

The BrainFrame Edge AI DevKit provides a new paradigm in creating solutions such as vision-based access control, uniform compliance, manufacturing automation, and video analytics.

BrainFrame is a platform ideal to scale and configurable to allow any connected camera to become a continuously monitoring Smart Vision system. BrainFrame's automatic algorithm fusion and optimization engine is powered by VisionCapsules, Aotu.ai's open source algorithm packaging format. According to the company, these self-contained capsules have a negligible memory footprint and include all necessary code, files, and metadata to describe and implement a machine learning algorithm.

VisionCapsules enable drag and drop Smart Vision AI algorithms and provides support for the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit. The deep integration of the OpenVINO toolkit leverages the optimization and acceleration offered by the toolkit on Intel's processors.

The BrainFrame Edge AI DevKit is available now for purchase at https://www.aaeon.com/en/ai/upx-edge-brainframe

Aotu.ai's BrainFrame software documentation is available now at https://aotu.ai/docs/getting_started/
