Figure 1: Edge AI Box X7
The Edge AI Box X7 has the following four advantages:
1. Powerful processing capability, ultra-low power consumption
With support for multiple high-speed interfaces such as USB3.0, Tri-mode Gigabit Ethernet and SATA 3.1, developers can use it to jumpstart their embedded vision designs.
2. Rich interface and peripheral options
With its efficient, scalable and programmable IP cores, it can be customized for many different applications, achieving the perfect combination of low power consumption and high performance.
3. Provide pre-trained models (provided by Xilinx)
A fully optimized set of models is provided that developers can use to find the closest model and start resetting for their target application.
4. Provide preset partner AI programs, which can be quickly put into production
Partner with AI application providers such as Aupera to provide commercial-grade AI applications such as ANPR and Crowd Statistics for real-time analytics. As a technology partner of Xilinx, PlanetSpark also provides a complete development environment and tool support.
The development environment for Vitis™ AI is Xilinx’s development platform for AI inference on Xilinx hardware platforms, including edge devices and Alveo™ cards. It consists of optimized IP, tools, libraries, models, and example designs designed for efficiency and ease of use, unleashing the full potential of AI accelerators on Xilinx FPGAs and ACAPs.
Open the popular frameworks Pytorch, Tensorflow, Tensorflow2, Caffe, and ready-made deep learning models to all users. AI Model Zoo provides optimized and resettable AI models, enabling users to achieve faster application development, faster processing power and more efficient productization on all Xilinx platforms.

Leverage various forms of technology, including sensors and edge computing, to create real-time heat maps of parking spaces in parking lots within a specific area. This information can be used in a number of ways, including but not limited to: using an app to help drivers easily find nearby parking lots, redirecting traffic to prevent area congestion in the event of a lack of parking spaces, and in the case of illegal parking Communicate this information to depot management. Realize intelligent management and control, vehicle positioning and scheduling, vehicle remote detection and service, traffic status perception, etc.
Use sensors and cameras to capture data on people traffic in a specific area. Collect relevant data such as movement of people, number of people, and other forms of data. It can promote the coordinated and efficient operation of urban people flow, and improve the standardization, precision and intelligence of urban construction and management. Make full use of information technology, deepen the intelligent construction and data mining and utilization of social security monitoring dynamic video systems, integrate people flow data and social monitoring resources, and improve and deepen the “smart and safe city”.
Figure 7: Edge AI Box X7 size is 151x111x53mm
In addition, it is worth mentioning that the Edge AI Box X7 has a small volume of 151x111x53mm and is very lightweight, which can greatly save installation space and facilitate mobile erection.
