CVEDIA partners with AI chipmaker Hailo to launch next-gen Thermal Edge AI solutions

TEL AVIV, Israel and LONDON, March 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Hailoa leading maker of AI (artificial intelligence) chips, today announced its partnership with CVEDIA. a leader in cutting-edge computer vision software, to launch cutting-edge, next-generation thermal AI solutions. Joint solutions combine CVEDIA’s expertise in computer vision and synthetic data technology with Hailo-8™ AI Processor to offer customers cutting-edge, high-performance and scalable thermal AI solutions for a wide range of market segments, including Industry 4.0, smart cities, security, transportation, and more.

Thermal imaging sensors are essential for security, surveillance and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications due to their ability to operate in bad weather, low light conditions and at night, while providing fewer false positives in such harsh environments. However, developing large-scale thermal AI solutions can be challenging given the paucity of publicly available thermal training data. CVEDIA’s synthetic data pipeline solves common data bottlenecks including data collection, annotation, and validation, while enabling rapid scalability and maintenance of thermal camera-based solutions.

The Hailo-8™ AI processor, with up to 26 tera-operations per second (TOPS) at 2.5W typical power consumption, will improve the performance of object detection and classification algorithms for countless applications leading edge in smart cities, transportation and security. Joint solutions will make AI models significantly smaller, allowing them to run faster without compromising accuracy – solving key issues facing industries, such as speed, reliability, time to market and production costs.

“CVEDIA is the only end-to-end computer vision solutions company that enables enterprises to rapidly develop, scale and maintain their AI products in the commercial and defense sectors,” said Arjan Wijnveen, CEO of CVEDIA. “When combined with Hailo’s high-performance AI processor, we can deliver incredibly energy-efficient, highly scalable and more secure AI solutions for a new era of smart cameras.”

“We are thrilled to partner with CVEDIA to demonstrate the true potential of AI for thermal imaging cameras and beyond,” said Liran bar, Vice President of Business Development at Hailo. “This partnership strengthens our position in the video analytics and security industry, allowing us to further address the growing need for efficient and reliable technologies that process visual images more efficiently at higher speeds, while maintaining privacy. We look forward to continuing to work with CVEDIA to extend our unparalleled edge processing solutions to a wide range of applications using thermal imaging.”

The Hailo-8™ delivers unprecedented performance to peripheral devices. The processor is built with an innovative architecture that enables edge devices to run sophisticated deep learning applications that previously could only run on the cloud. Their advanced structure results in higher performance, reduced power, and minimal latency, enabling increased privacy and improved reliability for smart devices operating at the edge.

CVEDIA’s thermal perimeter security solution runs at 55 frames per second (FPS) on the Hailo-8™ AI processor, delivering 20x faster FPS than leading GPU-based solutions on the market, with 18x latency .5 ms, a power consumption of only 1.8 W and minimal loss of precision. CVEDIA and Hailo will showcase the joint solution at the ISC West event in Vegas, March 23-25, 2022. Use this link to book a meeting at ISC West
