Introducing the K210 RISC-V AI Camera (M5StickV)

M5STACK announces the further expansion into the AIOT(AI+IOT) edge computing market with the K210 RISC-V 64 AI Camera— an innovative machine vision and machine learning programmable camera that’s competitively priced to meet the needs of a rapidly growing AI market.

AI cameras help engineers quickly implement machine learning, image recognition, and speech recognition functions, and the K210 RISC-V 64 AICamera supports OpenMV and MicroPython to make programming on easier while delivering the maximum efficiency and flexibility needed for advanced level big data computation.

M5stick-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 M5stickV easier.

Made with the incredibly powerful machine learning AI chip ‘K210’— Kendryte K210 -an edge computing system-on-chip (SoC) with dual-core 64bit RISC-V CPU and state-of-art neural network processor. a high-performance hardware accelerator that offers superior low power vision processing speed and accuracy— K210 RISC-V 64 AI Camera comes with numerous built-in advantages over its competition.

From its KPU high performance convolutional neural network (CNN) hardware accelerator, powerful calculation capabilities, and relatively low cost high-performance AI core to its exclusive hardware package with camera, horn, microphone, screen, gyroscope, battery, wireless communication and complete enclosure, K210 RISC-V 64 AI Camera was built from the inside out to be a powerful, ready-to-use product-level AI application terminal.

The module comes with the OmniVision OV7740 sensor, using the OmniPixel®3-HS technology, providing a best-in-class low light sensitivity, making it ideal for machine vision. In addition to an OV7740 sensor, M5stick-V features more hardware resources such as a speaker with built-in I2S Class-D DAC, MEMS Microphone, IPS screen, 6-axis IMU, 200mAh Li-Po battery, and more.

More than the visioning, M5stick-V also features the embedded APU – Audio Processor. With its hardware beam-forming support and dual 512-point FFT units, the M5stick-V is also capable of a series of machine hearing works like voice wake-up to speech recognition.

K210 RISC-V 64 AI Camera provides built-in image processing model libraries for advanced real-time facial and objects recognition that makes it perfect and ready-to-use for:

  • Face recognition/detection
  • Object detection/classification
  • Obtaining size and coordinates of the target in real time
  • Obtaining a type of detected target in real time
  • Shape recognition
  • Video/Audio Record/Display
  • Game simulator

Additional Info on K210 Chips

Kendryte K210 provides individuals users, business users, and enterprise users with enhanced flexibility, affordability, and freedom by use.
While most major AI chips contain product and design flaws, the K210 rises above Google Edge TPU, Movidius/Intel, Huawei Hess, Beaten, and others by offering a zero-threshold solution with efficient, stable, and reliable high-performance MCU that can be quickly deployed and customized directly by users.

    This Version M5StickV does not have WiFi, the WiFi version M5StickV+ will be released about the end of 2019.

    I’ve seen one write up saying that it’s got no WiFi, this writer say’s it has “wireless communication” I ask dose it have WiFi or not & what exactly is “wireless communication”?
