Google launches AIY Vision Kit for Raspberry Pi

Google has launched its AIY Vision Kit, which features on-device neural network acceleration.

The kit requires users to add a Raspberry Pi Zero W, a Raspberry Pi Camera, an SD card, and a power supply.

“The kit includes a cardboard outer shell, the VisionBonnet circuit board, an RGB arcade-style button, a piezo speaker, a macro/wide lens kit, a tripod mounting nut, and other connecting components,” said Google.

The unit and its software can be used to recognise common objects, faces and their expressions, and cats and dogs.

“We’ve also included a tool to compile models for Vision Kit, so you can train and retrain models with TensorFlow on your workstation or any cloud service.”

The Vision Kit will be available in early December, with pre-orders now open.
