OpenCV AI Kit (OAK) is a modular, open-source ecosystem composed of MIT-licensed hardware, software, and AI training. OAK-D-Lite is a tiny artificial intelligence (AI) and computer vision (CV) powerhouse, providing spatial AI leveraging stereo depth.
The OAK-D-Lite board includes three onboard cameras and the power of the Myriad X VPU with 4 TOPS. The DepthAI hardware, firmware, and software suite combine depth perception, object detection (neural inference), and object tracking. It gives you this power in a simple, easy-to-use Python API.
OAK-D-Lite is smaller, lighter and uses less power; compared to OAK-D. The main difference between the D and the D-Lite are lower resolution mono-cameras, no IMU on board, and no power adapter.
OAK-D-Lite allows quick setup and interfaces over USB3C to the host. DepthAI can be used with your (embedded) host platform of choice, including the Raspberry Pi 4, Jetson Nano Dev Kit, Google Edge TPU Coral, and other popular embedded hosts. DepthAI is compatible with any operating system that supports OpenVINO, including: Linux (Ubuntu, Yocto Project, CentOS, Raspbian), Mac OS X and Windows.
