Today during the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) opening keynote, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich introduced the Intel® Joule™ compute module, a sophisticated maker board with an Intel® RealSense™ depth-sensing camera targeted at Internet of Things (IoT) developers, entrepreneurs and established enterprises.
The Intel Joule module will be featured in the upcoming season of America’s Greatest Makers.
Several Intel partners such as Microsoft and GE are demonstrating potential applications of this technology this week at IDF, including French company PivotHead which built augmented reality safety glasses for Airbus employees.
The Intel Joule module enables people to take a concept into a prototype and then into production at a fraction of the time and development cost. The Intel Joule platform is a high performance system-on-module (SOM) in a tiny, low-power package thus making it ideal for computer vision, robotics, drones, industrial IoT, VR, AR, micro-servers and other applications that require high-end edge computing.
The Intel Joule module is available in two models – 570x and 550x. The Intel Joule 570x developer kit is available for sale at the 2016 Intel Developer Conference in San Francisco, and will begin shipping in September through Intel reseller partners.
