On 29 December, Himax Technologies, Inc. (HIMX), a leading supplier and fabless manufacturer of display drivers and other semiconductor products, along with Seeed Studio, the IoT hardware partner, announced the joint showcase of the SenseCAP A1101 LoRaWAN Vision AI Sensor, embedded with Himax WiseEye smart image sensing solution, at the upcoming CES 2023 which is taking place from 5-8 January 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada
At CES, Himax and Seeed Studio will showcase the SenseCAP A1101 sensor which has already been applied to real smart agriculture cases. Powered by Himax's ultralow power WiseEye technology, the SenseCAP A1101 vision AI sensor can operate for more than nine months while continuously collecting field images and uploading the final data results from local inferencing every minute. The vision AI sensor hardware is designed to adopt high industrial protection grade that supports an operating temperature range of -40-85°C and IP66 waterproof rating, making it a good fit for IoT applications placed either in outdoor or indoor argo-ecosystems. The sensor solution also supports rapid configuration of the bluetooth app, and fast connection to gateways and cloud servers, with only few clicks setup.
"We're really happy and honoured to work with Himax to embed their WiseEye solution to this Vision AI device. To be the most reliable IoT Hardware Partner for global developers, we at Seeed are always looking to integrate advanced technologies into ready-to-deploy hardware solutions for digital transformation in vertical industries," said Joey Jiang, GM of Industry and Application Group of Seeed Studio.
"The demand for battery-powered smart devices with AI-enabled smart sensing is rapidly growing, providing an opportunity for us to further expand by joining forces with other AI platform partners by offering value-added features for our customers in terms of privacy, security, and superior battery life for diversified endpoint AI devices," added Jordan Wu, CEO of Himax.
