The HuskyLens is an AI-powered vision sensor compatible with microcontroller boards such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi, LattePanda, and micro:bit. Unlike similar products, says the company, HuskyLens is very friendly to younger age students as it has several built-in algorithms that allow students to make creative AI projects without previous algorithmic knowledge.
“HuskyLens has been designed with the aim of creating a product that enables the user to create without limitation,” says Ricky Ye, Chief Executive Officer at DFRobot. “Our products are designed to excite young people about science, technology, engineering and maths and we believe our dynamic and innovative products do just that, offering students an early and interactive introduction into coding, programming and AI.”
HuskyLens is equipped with algorithms of facial recognition, object recognition, object tracking, line following, color detection, and tag detection. Users can also switch between algorithms with a single click. with its onboard AI vision software, the camera continuously learns and improves its abilities with each click of the button and has an algorithmic processing speed 1,000 times faster than most similar products on the market, says the company.
The company says that the main framework of the HuskyLens will be open sourced and be licensed under LGPL-2.1. The repository of the project will have multiple licenses. There will be a file in each algorithm folder indicating the original author and its license type.
