Description

UNIT-V is the new AI Camera powered by Kendryte K210 .An edge computing system-on-chip(SoC) with dual-core 64bit RISC-V CPU and Convolutional Neural Network neural network processor.UNIT-V AI Camera features its integration with machine vision capabilities, featuring the unprocessed acceptability to AI Visioning with high energy efficiency and low cost. We co-oped with Sipeed providing the MicroPython environment makes programming on UNIT-V easier. Support MicroPython development environment, which makes the program code more concise when you use UNIT-V for project development.Equipped with OV2640 (2 megapixel) image sensor, it is an ideal choice for machine vision project.It is equipped with two programmable keys and an RGB LED indicator on the front for convenient status display.At the bottom, there is a PH2.0*4P interface and a type-C interface compatible with grove, which is convenient to connect with the main controllor. Support TF card to expand memory, related material and model file call more convenient.

blob imaging is fast but..

To communicate to M5StickC by UART, fairly slow than Maixpy terminal.
Buffering issue? I'm not sure at this moment.

This is Small M5StickV!

I use M5StickV and UnitV.
M5StickV is usefull for standalone AI camera But which is a bits difficult for assembling with robot . On the other hand, UnitV is smaller and easy to assemble for some hobby robot.
So, this gadget is very cool and useful!
