The strategic partnership will provide joint offering for modular embedded vision and edge AI systems.

Allied Vision, a global provider of industrial camera solutions and Antmicro, a software-driven embedded technology company developing advanced open-source based edge computing systems, have announced a strategic partnership to drive their common goals in building complex and portable vision systems.

The announcement is made to underline the ongoing collaboration between the companies that started with the joint demonstration of a successful technology integration between Allied Vision’s revolutionary Alvium camera series and Antmicro’s real-time deep learning object detection system based on the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier edge computing platform. The collaboration between Antmicro and Allied Vision in the embedded software domain was since extended to cover the entire NVIDIA Jetson series including the Jetson Nano board, as well as multiple platforms from NXP.
