What better way to announce the availability of the Portenta Vision Shield LoRa than at The Things Conference 2021 – a global showcase for all the top-notch LoRaWAN products and services.
The LoRa® module option of the Portenta Vision Shield is specifically designed for edge ML applications, enabling low-power, long distance communication over LoRa® wireless protocol and LoRaWAN networks. It’s the perfect addition to the powerful Arduino Portenta H7 which makes possible machine learning on-device, thereby greatly reducing the communication bandwidth requirement in an IoT application.
Always on machine vision – The Portenta Vision Shield comes with an ultra-low-power Himax camera. The camera module autonomously detects motion while the Portenta H7 is in stand-by — only waking up the microcontroller when needed.
Voice and audio event recognition – The Portenta Vision Shield features two ultra-compact and omnidirectional MP34DT06JTR microphones, bringing voice recognition and audio event detection. Both the video and audio data can be stored on an SD card, and transmitted through the LoRa® module to the Arduino IoT Cloud or your own infrastructure.
If you would like to learn how to create LoRa® powered solutions running machine vision algorithms then watch Sebastian Romeo’s workshop at The Things Conference, Thursday 28th January 1.00pm – 1.30pm CET, followed by Q&A at 1.30pm CET.
