Intel Movidius Helps Bring Artificial Intelligence to Video Surveillance Cameras
Intel Movidius, the world leader in embedded machine vision technology, is helping bring artificial intelligence (AI) to video surveillance cameras. Movidius participated in an announcement today from Dahua Technology USA in which Dahua outlined how it is using Movidius’ Myriad 2 Vision Processing Unit (VPU) technology to power select Dahua video surveillance cameras. These cameras will go beyond traditional functions such as monitoring and recording by offering advanced video analysis features, such as crowd density monitoring, stereoscopic vision, facial recognition, people counting, behavior analysis and detection of illegally parked vehicles.Movidius technology is focused on delivering class-leading AI performance in ultra-low-power smart devices. Thanks to the Myriad 2 VPU, Dahua is able to run cutting edge Deep Neural Networks on the device itself, creating natively intelligent cameras that can operate with or without cloud-based compute resources.
