An impressive open source project from Intel

Intel brought us a new open source project on github (openbot) that turns your smartphone into an AI device for creating a cockpit for an autonomous vehicle.

It uses the camera of your smartphone for people detection. The base for the android app is one of the tensorflow examples you can find here:

The camera (here a Nokia 5.3 with android 10.0) is connected to an arduino (here a arduino micro pro [instead of the original bom listed Arduino Nano])

You can read the full list of features and documentation about this project by downloading the pdf from Intel’s github site.
