Spatial AI Made Easy and Affordable

Computer Vision

Since the invention of Spatial AI with the launch of YOLO (You Only Look Once) in 2007, the industry has endeavored to make this world-changing technology accessible to anyone. 

Whether you are a student just learning to code, a doctor performing telesurgery, or an industrial safety officer looking for an automated pedestrian detection and warning system, our OAK Series cameras allow anyone to use Spatial AI - to enable devices to understand and interact with the world the same way we do.

To take it a step further (and smaller), our OAK-D-Lite brings this incredible capability, arguably one of the most important inventions of humankind, to you in a tiny, low cost, and most importantly, simple-to-use device. Technology from the labs of some of the world’s biggest and most advanced companies, right in the palm of your hand.

But don’t take our word for it, see for yourself. Take a few (or more!) moments to watch some of the inspiring stories from those who have already put our OAK systems to work. And for those of you who have been with us since the beginning, thank you! You, alongside giants like Intel and Microsoft, have been instrumental in getting this technology where it belongs: to those who desire to solve problems to better the human condition.
