Coral is Google’s platform for enhancing hardware with inferencing and on-device AI. Google is partnering with Asus IoT to expand its accessibility, especially for Internet of Things use cases.
With this agreement, Google hopes to scale manufacture, distribution, and support for Coral under the Asus IoT sub-brand.
ASUS IoT will give Coral the tools it needs to achieve its growth expectations as we continue to create new edge computing products because of its decades of experience in global electronics production.
Customers will receive dedicated teams for sales and technical assistance as Asus IoT takes over as Coral’s main sales, distribution, and support channel. This involves a wider distribution network that will enable the availability of goods in additional nations.
As the first partner to produce a product using the Coral SoM when Coral announced the Tinker Edge T development board , ASUS IoT and Coral have a long history of working together. ASUS IoT released the first multi-Edge TPU device with the award winning AI Accelerator PCIe Card and also merged Coral accelerators into their enterprise-class intelligent edge computers . We know they share our strong dedication to new innovation in edge computing because of our history of working together.
AI can operate offline and on-device thanks to the Coral line hardware, which has the advantage of being quicker and more secure than sending data to the cloud. Object detection, pose estimation, image segmentation, and key phrase detection can all be done with this. For on-the-fly noise reduction, Google employs it for the Series One range (with Lenovo) of video conferencing room kits.
With the help of this Asus IoT-Coral alliance, Google will continue to be the sole owner of the company name and product line while concentrating on developing the following wave of privacy-preserving tools and features for cognitive computing at the edge.
