Qualcomm, one of the world’s leading technology manufacturers, has announced the launch of its new Vision Intelligence Platform, purpose built for the internet of things (IoT).
The launch of Qualcomm’s Vision Intelligence Platform has also been coupled with the unveiling of the company’s initial system-on-chips, the QCS605 and QCS603, that have been manufactured with the capabilities to deliver advanced computing processing across a range of IoT devices and applications.
“Our goal is to make IoT devices significantly smarter as we help customers bring powerful on-device intelligence, camera processing and security,” said Joseph Bousaba, Vice President, Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies.
“The Qualcomm Vision Intelligence Platform is the culmination of years of advanced research and development that brings together breakthrough advancements in camera, on-device AI and heterogeneous computing.”
Qualcomm has implemented a range of its leading technologies on the chips, including its AI engine and cutting-edge computing and graphics processors (CPU and GPUs).
Further, the Visual Intelligence Platform includes Qualcomm’s camera processing, machine learning and computer vision software development kits, allowing developers to explore new possibilities for both industrial and commercial devices.
“The platform is a premier launchpad for manufacturers and developers to create a new world of intelligent IoT devices,” Bousaba continued.
Examples of such devices that Qualcomm expects to be created on the platform include smart security cameras, VR cameras, robotics and smart displays, amongst other advanced devices.
