About JeVois

Open-source machine vision finally ready for prime-time in all your projects!

JeVois = video sensor + quad-core CPU + USB video + serial port, all in a tiny, self-contained package (28 cc or 1.7 cubic inches). Insert a microSD card loaded with the provided open-source machine vision algorithms (including OpenCV 3.2 and many others), connect to your desktop, laptop, and/or Arduino, and give your projects the sense of sight immediately.

Latest news

June 16, 2017: JeVois 1.1 released. Download the latest microSD image to try out these new features:

  • Access the microSD card inside JeVois live over USB as a virtual USB flash drive. Directly edit config files, add training data, retrieve data recorded by JeVois, or install/update machine vision modules without having to physically take out the card.
  • Program machine vision modules in Python 3.5 with full Python-OpenCV 3.2.0 support. Combined with the live access to microSD over USB, edit a machine vision module written in Python directly on the JeVois camera without having to remove the card.
  • New suite of Ubuntu 17.04 deb packages for developers, should (hopefully!) eliminate headaches with trying to install the jevois-sdk.
  • Access a Linux login shell on JeVois, either over the hardware 4-pin serial port, or using serial-over-USB, while machine vision software is running.
  • New camera settings for low-light and night vision, using automatic reduction of framerate to increase exposure time.
  • And more, see more details.

Intro doc

General introduction and core documentation

At the core of JeVois is a new C++17 machine vision framework combined with custom Linux kernel extensions, to simplify the tasks of grabbing images from a camera sensor and sreaming vision results to s PC over USB and/or to an Arduino over serial link.
