Camera brings intelligent sensing to IoT platform
AVNET has connected the onsemi RSL10 Smart Shot Color Camera to the cloud via its IoTConnect Platform, to create a framework that helps OEMs more rapidly develop end-to-end Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. Solution demonstrates how real-time images can be captured and seamlessly transmitted to the cloud over Bluetooth Low Energy so that they can be interpreted to manage devices, set alerts and make decisions. The camera provides the imaging (eyes) and the communication/connectivity (Bluetooth Low Energy), while IoTConnect provides the means to link this information to the Cloud so that it can be interpreted, manipulated, and learning (AI) can be performed. Customers can take this recipe and customize it for their own Proof of Concept (POC) where vision is required, such as detecting objects, reading analog meters or checking inventory levels.
