Lanner Electronics announced its first Hailo-8™AI-powered PCIe accelerator card, the Falcon H8. Lanner collaborated with leading AI (Artificial Intelligence) chipmaker Hailo to design the Falcon H8, enabling scalable and powerful intelligent video analytics applications for multiple industries operating at the edge, including intelligent transport systems (ITS), smart cities, smart retail, and Industry 4.0. The Falcon H8 is one of the most cost-efficient PCIe AI accelerator cards on the market, with a low power consumption and record high of up to 156 tera operations per second (TOPS) to allow high-end deep learning applications on edge servers.
Hailo announced its partnership with CVEDIA to launch next-generation thermal edge AI solutions. The joint solutions combine CVEDIA’s computer vision expertise alongside its synthetic data technology with the Hailo-8™ AI processor to offer customers high-performance, scalable thermal edge AI solutions for a wide range of market segments including industry 4.0, smart cities, security, transportation, and more. Thermal imaging sensors are critical for security, surveillance, and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) applications due to their ability to operate in bad weather, low light conditions, and at nighttime, while providing fewer false positives in such challenging environments.
