Vecow Co., which develops embedded technologies, has announced a partnership with artificial intelligence chipmaker Hailo, to launch a next-generation AI solution, the ABP-3000 AI computing system. The system features a compact Hailo-8 AI accelerator module, enabling better performance and AI inference capabilities at the edge. The collaboration allows for best-in-class power productivity and edge ecosystem development possibilities, the companies said in a statement.
Powered by the 8th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processor, the Vecow ABP-3000 AI can integrate with multiple Hailo-8 AI accelerators with best-in-class power efficiency for fanless industrial-grade AI edge devices. The system delivers AI computing performance across multiple standard NN benchmarks, including over 3,000 frames per second (FPS) on Resnet-50, over 2,500 FPS on Mobilenet-V1 SSD, over 450 FPS on Yolo-v5m, and up to 230 FPS on Yolo-v3 with typical power consumption of only 25W for the entire solution.
In addition, the Hailo-8 acceleration module brings performance to edge devices. The module includes an architecture that enables edge devices to run sophisticated deep learning applications that could previously only run on the cloud, Hailo said. The advanced structure translates into higher performance, lower power, and minimal latency, enabling enhanced privacy and better reliability for smart devices operating at the edge. The system supports a broad range of applications in machine vision, in-vehicle computing, robotic control, public safety, or other edge AI applications.
“It’s really a win-win solution for Vecow and our customers,” said Joseph Huang, global sales director at Vecow. “With the increasing growth of intelligent edge computing, customers are looking for an AI computing system that combines high-performance, power efficiency and low latency. We are working with Hailo not only on the ABP-3000 AI, but on more models, and are looking forward to engaging more advanced AI technologies like the Hailo-8 AI accelerator, leading to more benefits for our global partners and customers.”
“Enterprises across industries are looking for solutions that ensure their edge devices are more powerful, versatile, responsive and secure,” said Orr Danon, CEO and co-founder of Hailo. “Vecow’s vision aligned perfectly with ours, allowing us to develop a joint solution that provides unmatched AI processing, ideal for fields ranging from smart retail to smart cities to Industry 4.0 and beyond. We look forward to continue working with Vecow to usher in a new wave of AI at the edge.”
