Many of us spend most of our days hunched over a desk, leaning forward looking at a computer screen, or slumped down in our chair. If you’re like me, you’re only reminded of your bad posture when your neck or shoulders hurt hours later, or you have a splitting migraine. Wouldn’t it be great if someone could remind you to sit up straight? The good news is, you can remind yourself! In this tutorial, we’ll build a posture app using a pose estimation model available from alwaysAI.
Many models, including those for pose estimation, may have much better performance when run on a GPU rather than a CPU. In this tutorial, we’ll cover how to run pose estimation on the Jetson Nano B01 and cover some nuances of running starter apps on this edge device.
The ability to recognize human activity with computer vision allows us to create applications that can interact with and respond to an user in real time. For instance, we can make an application that gives feedback to a user in the moment so that they can learn how to recreate the perfect golf swing, or that sends an immediate alert for help when someone has fallen, or that generates an immersive augmented reality experience based on the user's position.
At the AWS re:Invent conference, we deepened our collaboration with Qualcomm® Technologies by demonstrating real-time object detection and pose estimation on the Qualcomm® Robotics RB3 platform. Based on the Qualcomm® SDA845 system-on-a-chip (SoC), the RB3 platform enables the creation of high-performing computer vision applications on robots and other IoT devices. We built an application on a demo robot that showcased the powerful combination of the Qualcomm® Robotics RB3 platform, our deep...
