Imagimob today announced that the Imagimob tinyML platform supports Arduino Nicla Voice, and that it adds fall detection to the Nicla Voice tinyML application portfolio.
The fall detection application is developed in the Imagimob end-to-end tinyML development platform. The Imagimob platform includes a built-in fall detection starter project, which includes an annotated dataset with video metadata, and a pre-trained ML-model in h5-format that detects person falls from a belt-mounted device using IMU data. Any developer can use the fall detection model and improve it by collecting more data. The fall detection application can easily be deployed on the Arduino Nicla Voice board.
Nicla Voice, announced on January 5th at CES, allows for easy implementation of always-on speech recognition on the edge adding to the existing capabilities for motion sensing, environmental sensing and machine vision offered by its sister modules, Nicla Sense ME and Nicla Vision.
Nicla Voice integrates Syntiant’s powerful NDP120 Neural Decision Processor™ to run multiple AI algorithms simultaneously at under 1mW, such as keyword spotting, multiple wake words, local commands recognition, multi-modal sensor fusion and other voice and sensor applications.
Nicla Voice comes with a comprehensive package of sensors: in addition to its microphone, it features a smart 6-axis motion sensor and a magnetometer, making it the ideal solution for predictive maintenance, gesture/voice recognition and contactless applications.
It offers onboard Bluetooth® Low Energy connectivity to easily interact with existing devices, and is compatible with Arduino Nicla, Portenta and MKR products.
Thanks to its headers and castellated pins, Nicla Voice is ready to go from prototype to industrial-scale production, easily integrating with custom carrier boards.
Finally, its ultra-low power consumption makes 24/7 always-on sensor data processing possible, with the option of battery-powered standalone operation.
“The Nicla range is proving to be a leading force in our efforts to enable innovators in every possible industry,” says Adriano Chinello, PRO Business Unit Leader. “Each new product we roll out – from Nicla Sense ME to Vision, and now Voice – comes with incredible capabilities packed into a tiny solution that can fit in the smallest spaces to upgrade existing equipment, or be designed into helmets and other wearables.”
Imagimob is since November 2022 an Official Arduino System Integrator and its tinyML platform will support the easy deployment of smart edge solutions with tinyML models running on Arduino intelligent sensing boards.
