Renesas has chosen Imagimob as “Partner of the Month” within the Renesas Ready Partner Program.
Renesas and Imagimob have worked together for over nine months integrating the Imagimob AI development platform for machine learning on edge devices with Renesas’ RA family of MCUs.
As part of the collaboration, Imagimob AI now includes a starter project for the Renesas EK-RA2L1 board, enabling customers to quickly develop AI models.
The two companies have launched an on-demand webinar as part of Renesas strategy to highlight partners in their ecosystem that can contribute to increased business value to its customers.
The webinar explains how to develop a tinyML application using Imagimob AI for understanding written characters on a Renesas Capacitive Touchpad. The webinar is hosted on the Renesas webinar platform.
The parties are also working together to integrate and strengthen their joint offering to the tinyML market with two separate software package developments that will be commercially available in April 2022:
- A plug-in now in development for the Renesas e2 studio software will allow users to configure any Renesas device to output data in the correct format to integrate with Imagimob AI, which can then synchronize it with a video that acts as metadata. The video can be used for data analysis, labeling purposes and model evaluation. This solution will allow any sensor or board to supply ready-to-use data for Imagimob AI.
- A software package for deploying models into firmware will enable C code generated for the model to be compiled by a script, linked with the pre-compiled firmware, and then automatically flashed onto the device. With a simple click, the model is deployed onto the device.
Imagimob will demonstrate Imagimob AI with support for Renesas solutions at tinyML Summit 2022 which is held in San Francisco on March 28-30.
