Description

What are the cores?

The Grove - Vision AI V2 is a technologically advanced MCU-based smart vision module powered by the Himax WiseEye2 HX6538 processor. It boasts a dual-core Arm Cortex-M55 and integrated Arm Ethos-U55 neural network component, utilizing Arm Helium technology for highly efficient vector data processing. This results in a substantial improvement in DSP and ML capabilities without sacrificing power consumption, making it ideal for battery-powered applications.

How's the performance of Grove Vision AI V2?

To have a quick evaluation of this board's performance, we compared it to Seeed's other MCU-based vision AI boards - Grove Vision AI Module, XIAO ESP32S3 Sense in four areas:

1. Power consumption: This metric indicates whether the board can be used in battery-powered products.

2. Inference time: This metric indicates the processing speed of the MCU and how much latency is involved.

3. Frame rate: This metric evaluates whether the product can capture instant changes, patterns, and movements.

4. Ease of use: We assessed whether this product is user-friendly for vision AI novices and can quickly run mainstream models on the market.

According to the evaluation, the Grove Vision AI V2 showcases a remarkable inference time of 33 milliseconds, a speedy frame rate of 30.30 FPS, and a low power consumption of only 0.35 watts. These findings prove that the Grove Vision AI V2 is a top choice for effective and efficient visual processing.
 

What's on the board?

Grove Vision AI V2 is now compatible with the OV5647 camera module through a standard CSI interface. We're also developing support for more camera versions, so stay tuned!

Grove Vision AI V2 is not only designed for vision applications but also features an onboard PDM microphone for sound applications. It comes with a SD card slot allows for convenient storage of images, videos, and identification results using an SD card.

With various interfaces like IIC, UART, SPI, and Type-C, this board has expansive capabilities and can be easily connected to popular products such as Seeed Studio XIAO, Grove, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBoard and ESP-based products for further development. For instance, integrating Grove Vision AI V2 with XIAO can effortlessly access the interface and data of Grove Vision AI V2 through Arduino, Micropython, CircuitPython, and PlatformIO, and conveniently connect to the cloud or dedicated servers like Home Assistance.

How to use it?

SenseCraft AI is a platform that enables easy AI model training and deployment with no-code/low-code. It supports Seeed products natively, ensuring complete adaptability of the trained models to Seeed products. Moreover, deploying models through this platform offers immediate visualization of identification results on the website, enabling prompt assessment of model performance.

Ideal for tinyML applications, adding vision AI to your smart sensor with Grove Vision AI V2 is made easy with the SenseCraft AI. Effortlessly deploy off-the-shelf or custom AI models by connecting the device, selecting a model, and viewing identification results.
