VIA Pixetto is a Full HD vision sensor that leverages object, shape, color, face, and handwriting recognition, as well as machine learning, to provide an intuitive and engaging platform for learning Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), and exploring the many potential applications of these leading-edge technologies. This makes VIA Pixetto an ideal gateway to learning coding and robotics.
VIA Pixetto delivers a combination of industry-leading technology balanced with unparalleled compatibility, enabling you to code in several programming languages to accelerate AI and ML learning through DIY projects. This fusion ensures that there are continually new ways of utilizing the technology for you to discover, enabling creators from across varying backgrounds and ages to pioneer new applications for the product. As a Full HD vision sensor, the VIA Pixetto applies impeccable recognition software: whether it be face or object recognition personally programmed by the user, or pre-installed shape, color, and handwriting recognition. Those functions can be leveraged to program facemask recognition, a color-following driverless car, and even a Christmas present-delivery service – even we are still discovering the boundaries of possibilities!
For students and independent learners, VIA Pixetto offers a chance to discover exactly how AI and ML technology works, with practical learning at the forefront. With a purpose-built simplified programming language provided in the form of ‘Blocks’, this is the perfect first step in developing a technological mindset, so vital for the next generation. VIA Pixetto is engaging for those with a newly burgeoning interest in AI, while also offering immense depth for advanced learners craving a new challenge.
For educators, VIA Pixetto serves as an engaging tool for demonstrating the strength and possibilities that AI and ML can unlock, and a platform for explaining how those technologies can be deployed across real-world applications. For the not so tech-savvy teachers out there we provide a plethora of step-by-step guides that help plan and present an effective session and learn valuable new coding skills.
This exceptional programmable vision sensor armed with a full-HD camera for dynamic videos can add another dimension to AI and ML projects that require computer vision. Push the limits of your creativity and discover endless opportunities with VIA Pixetto!
