FLIR Systems develops Firefly machine vision camera family
October 23, 2018 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
October 23, 2018 – FLIR Systems has announced the FLIR Firefly camera family with inference-enabled machine vision cameras.
The FLIR Firefly, which integrates the Intel Movidius Myriad 2 Vision Processing Unit (VPU), is designed for image analysis professionals using deep learning for more accurate decisions, and faster, easier system development.
The FLIR Firefly is a compact and low-power camera, ideal for embedded and handheld systems. Machine makers can load their trained neural networks directly onto the Firefly’s integrated VPU. Additionally, Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick users can deploy their existing networks directly onto the Firefly. This unique design reduces system size and improves speed, reliability, power efficiency and security.
The camera can be used in a variety of applications including robotic guidance, quality inspection, biometric recognition, precision agriculture and medical imaging.
