ASUS IoT Face Recognition Edge AI Dev Kit

ASUS IoT Face Recognition Edge AI Dev Kit is a one-stop solution for identifying faces and other key personal markers. It pairs the renowned ASUS IoT Tinker Board 2 with FaceMe® SDK from CyberLink to create a powerful package that’s capable of recognition with up to 98.35% accuracy, and at fast 154 ms inference speeds.

In addition to high-accuracy, high-speed whole-face recognition, Face Recognition Edge AI Dev Kit is able to assess and infer attributes such as age, gender and head orientation. This enables a powerful platform for diverse business applications, from identification for authentication to driving digital signage tailored to individual customers.

With rich GPIO connectivity, Dev Kit can even connect with electronic gates or door locks and intercom systems to achieve a comprehensive access-control system.
