There are no special constraints on this machine that hinder edge AI solutions. Feel free to use any library model you are interested in on up to 4 camera's simultaneously.
Here are some tips to make live (or well, the creation and management of edge AI solutions) easier on the ICR-4xxx series:
- The ICR-4xxx is available with Power over Ethernet. This means that up to 4 ip cameras can be connected to the ICR-4 using simple UTP cables which provide suitable cameras with their power. This means your applicaiton will have very low technical complexity: you will only need an ICR-4xxx, a power supply, and 1-4 suitable cameras to create a fully stand-alone edge AI solution. Pretty cool.
