Product Details


DNNCam™ AI camera

Brand / Manufacturer

Boulder AI

Product Description

The Deep Neural Network Camera, or DNNCam, is a system capable of replacing tedious, dangerous and subjective visual tasks such as counting, sorting, and observational reporting. In short, it is artificial intelligence in a can.

It is an ultra power efficient supercomputing camera with special functions
designed for real world off-grid and rugged environments (see video below). It can operate in extreme hot, cold, and wet environments and does not rely on a fat pipe to the cloud to make actionable decisions. It contains all necessary elements to sample
enormous high resolution scenes, reduce the data through deep learning (Caffe, Tensorflow,
CuDNN), and store or transmit highly reduced, contextual information.

DNN Angles

Built on Nvidia

The Jetson TX2 is a 256-core supercomputer the size of a business card. Per watt, it is unrivaled in its performance in image and AI tasks.

Passive Cooling

The DNNCam™ does not have a cooling fan, as this would prevent the camera from being waterproof and dustproof.

Instead, it utilizes passive cooling, modeled with computational fluid dynamics.

As you can see, the engineering behind the DNNCam is extensive.
