FLIR Firefly Camera Leverages Intel
Movidius Myriad 2 Vision Processing Unit.
October 22, 2018
The FLIR Firefly camera family now
incorporates the Intel Movidius Myriad 2 Vision Processing Unit (VPU)
for artificial intelligence at the edge. The Firefly* combines a new
machine vision platform with the power of deep learning to address
complex and subjective problems, such as classifying the quality of a
solar panel or determining whether fruit is of export quality.
FLIR engineers accelerated the Firefly’s development cycle using the
Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick (NCS) for prototype development. For
large-scale commercial production, they ported that development work to
the Intel Movidius Myriad 2 VPU. By rapidly prototyping on the Intel
Movidius Neural Compute Stick and the Neural Compute SDK, FLIR
streamlined the development of machine learning in the camera. The
production version of the Firefly uses the tiny, stand-alone Intel
Movidius Myriad 2 VPU to perform two roles at the edge: image signal
processing and open platform inference.
The 27- by 27-milimeter Firefly is roughly the size of a U.S. quarter
