Journey to the Extremes in Facial Recognition
Cities and companies around the world are turning to using AI Edge Computing as a solution to many needs. From Smart City and Smart Community initiatives to Smart Building Management and Smart Security, many AI Edge Computing apps are emerging over time, helping to improve the quality and well-being of people living in these cities, communities and buildings.
AI makes people's lives easier by using facial recognition and behavioral analysis to help improve safety and security in these communities. Facial recognition can help easily identify and monitor those involved, while behavioral analysis takes the level of security to the next level with the use of virtual fences and identification of suspicious behavior. At the same time, these technologies can even be used to track lost items and find lost items. The benefits of these AI Edge technologies provide a higher quality of life for citizens to feel safer on the streets and at home.
A company in China is leading the deployment of AI Edge and Smart City solutions and has begun developing a new edge computing platform to power advanced facial recognition applications. This facial recognition system is designed for using in a number of AI applications, including contact tracking for Smart Cities, intelligent security and access control in Smart Buildings, Smart Community apps, and identifying people who live and don't live there.
With a powerful new AI Edge system with unique requirements, the company needed an embedded hardware solution that could meet not only the demands of being an embedded AI edge platform, but also the specific needs and support required by AI systems. These challenges and requirements had to be met to realize the full potential of AI challenges.
For better coverage and monitoring for edge applications, the facial recognition system can be an installation that requires multiple camera inputs. A single system that supports multiple camera inputs helps lower overall distribution costs, making smart security solutions more attractive to cities and communities on a lower budget.
With powerful facial recognition software that should be used in advanced applications, the AI system must have the power to run the software effectively.
To ensure effective and flexible distribution of the company's AI solution, the system needs to be deployed to the network with a series of embedded configurations for cities, communities, and buildings. This requires a robust system that is not only compact enough to fit in a variety of spaces, but also easy to install as well as cope with a variety of environments and weather conditions.
As a major developer of AI technology, the company needed a system that helped protect its software. To ensure that their proprietary software was safe from attacks, proprietary encryption protection had to be implemented to prevent software from being copied or stolen.
The specialization of the company's AI software required the development of a special operating system and system functions. The company designed a special Linux structure, but needed a partner to help test and improve the operating system to ensure trouble-free operation.
The company gave AAEON, the award-winning manufacturer of built-in AI Edge solutions, the necessary support not only to provide a hardware solution for AI software, but also to provide the testing and preparation needed to launch AI Edge systems. AAEON worked closely with the company to determine the best solution as the BOXER-8120AI Built-in AI system with NVIDIA Jetson TX2.
The BOXER-8120AI features powerful I/O capabilities that include four Gigabit Ethernet port for creating an IP camera network. The company also demands that the BOXER-8120AI is configured with both COM and CAN bus ports and it provides deeper integration into Smart City and Smart Community frameworks by enabling the system to be connected with even more sensors or edge nodes.
BOXER-8120AI, is powered by NVIDIA Jetson TX2. The Jetsn TX2 has a hexacore processor built by combining dual-core Denver 2 and quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 processors. TX2 also has an 8 GB LPDDR4 memory and up to 32 GB built-in eMMC storage. BOXER-8120AI with NVIDIA Jetson TX2, which supports up to 256 CUDA core processing, provides the necessary performance for the AI system.
BOXER-8120AI has a compact and robust structure. Thanks to its special design, which is produced only 30 mm thick, it can fit in almost any narrow area. With fanless design and fully aluminum chassis, it can operate under various conditions in a wide temperature range from -20 °C to 50°C. In addition, the aesthetic design of boxer-8120AI is considered as another prominent element among the products that can be considered as equivalent.
AAEON worked with the project owner customer to provide embedded systems that help keep their software safe and prevent illegal copying and intellectual property theft, and the BOXER-8120AI was designed with several key guards as standard. Working with the company, the BOXER-8120AI was configured with a high-end encryption protection system to address each company's specific needs and concerns.
AAEON has provided one-to-one support to customers through our OEM/ODM Services, from adding an additional CANBus port to providing custom software protection. Working closely with the company, AAEON helped test and develop the custom Linux installation the company chose to use. Also Aaeon, which makes the system efficient and lean by customizing the BIOS, eliminating unnecessary drivers and hardware controllers, improved the end-user experience, helped to speed up testing times and reduce time to market.
With the installation of facial recognition system, as the traffic and accident monitoring capacities of the Smart City increase, Smart Communities can provide better safety for their residents and ensure that people and properties within Smart Secure buildings are safe. As the number of AI Edge apps and their ability to deliver intelligent solutions increases, cities and communities around the world will be able to enjoy a higher quality of life for their residents.
BOXER-8120AI is designed for Edge AI calculation. The BOXER-8100AI is equipped with 256 CUDA cores, part of the family of built-in AI solutions, and nvidia Jetson TX2, which supports a range of AI frameworks including Tensorflow,Caffe2, and Mxnet. Users can also install their own AI software on the BOXER-8120AI.
BOXER-8120AIhas four Intel LAN (i211) ports to support IP cameras and also features a range of robust design features, including dust prevention features, a wide range of operating temperatures, a wide range of power inputs, and an aluminum chassis.
BOXER-8120AI’s compact, cost-effective design and powerful processing capabilities mean you can deploy your AI platform anywhere.
