Integrated Depth Processing and AI Inference allows to build privacy-sensitive applications.

Build the Future of Intelligent Spaces

Use Case Retail Intelligence

From Counting to Cashier-less Stores

Major traditional retail brands look for new ways to compete with the growing e-commerce competitors. Brick-and-mortar stores don’t have precise insight into their customers buying behavior. Intelligent features like detailed customer analytics or even convenience technologies like cashier-less checkout are being implemented by next-gen stores.

Real-world retail environments are large and complex spaces. Due to its large coverage HemiStereo® allows precise analytics even in wide rooms with many occluding objects.

Use Case Home Safety

Building Situation Aware Homes

Due to recent demographic changes many societies are facing major challenges in their elderly care systems. With more people living alone, the risk of household accidents and health-related emergencies are rising. However, AI-enabled future smart homes could mitigate risks by calling for help in case of emergency.

With HemiStereo® homes could become intelligent enough to detect and understand even complex emergency situations.

Use Case Public Security

Privacy-Aware Automated Security

Millions of CCTV cameras observe public spaces around the globe. However, these cameras are only used for deterrence and forensic purposes but cannot react to threats. AI-powered security systems on the other hand could automatedly react to dangerous situations, very likely even prevent damages.

At the same time the privacy of people in the observed area must be protected. Critical data such as images, which allow personal identification, should not be sent to any remote location in the internet. Therefore, HemiStereo® integrates powerful AI computing onto the device and allows all sensitive data to be processed locally with no need for cloud-based computing.

Made for Developers

Flexible I/O

Expand your DK1 by a wide option of ports, including Display, Gigabit Ethernet, USB and Raspberry Pi-style expansion header.

Powerful SDK

Configure a wide range of camera functions and controls. Get full root access to the underlying L4T OS.

Customizable

Customize your DK1 by changing the 3d-printed cover or expand your application by adding a microphone array or RGB LED modules.

Clean and Easy to Use SDK

HemiStereo Viewer

Initial sensor set-up is easy with the HemiStereo® Viewer. Remote control depth sensing configuration and image paramters with a view clicks.

HemiStereo Code Window

HemiStereo® SDK provides a comprehensible C++ API which is available both on-board the embedded system as well on a remote computer.
