Welcome to Edge Impulse! We enable developers to create the next generation of intelligent device solutions with embedded Machine Learning. In the documentation you'll find user guides, tutorials and API documentation. For support, visit the forums.
If you're new to the idea of embedded machine learning, or machine learning in general, you may enjoy our quick guide: What is embedded ML, anyway?
Follow these three steps to build your first embedded Machine Learning model - no worries, you can use almost any device to get started.
- You'll need some data:
- If you have an existing development board or device, you can collect data with a few lines of code using the Data forwarder or the Edge Impulse for Linux SDK.
- If you have one of the fully supported development boards, follow these steps to collect data from the real world:
- ST B-L475E-IOT01A
- Arduino Nano 33 BLE Sense
- Eta Compute ECM3532 AI Sensor
- Eta Compute ECM3532 AI Vision
- OpenMV Cam H7 Plus
- Himax WE-I Plus
- Nordic Semiconductor nRF52840 DK
- Nordic Semiconductor nRF5340 DK
- Silicon Labs Thunderboard Sense 2
- Sony's Spresense
- Arduino Portenta H7 + Vision shield
- Raspberry Pi 4
- NVIDIA Jetson Nano
- If you already have a dataset, you can upload it via the Uploader.
- If you have a mobile phone you can use it as a sensor to collect data, see Mobile phone.
- Try the tutorials on continuous motion recognition, responding to your voice, recognizing sounds from audio, adding sight to your sensors or object detection. These will let you build machine learning models that detect things in your home or office.
- After training your model you can run your model on your device:
- If you want to integrate the model with your own firmware or project you can export your complete model (including all signal processing code and machine learning models) to a C++ or Arduino library with no external dependencies (open source and royalty-free), see Running your impulse locally.
- If you have a fully supported development board (or your mobile phone) you can build new firmware - which includes your model - directly from the UI. It doesn't get easier than that!
We have some great tutorials, but you have full freedom in the models that you design in Edge Impulse. You can plug in new signal processing blocks, and completely new neural networks. See Building custom processing blocks, or click the three dots on a neural network page and select 'Switch to Keras (expert) mode'.
You can access any feature in the Edge Impulse Studio through the Edge Impulse API. For example, you can use this to build your own AutoML pipeline which finds the best parameters for your signal processing code - see Parameter search with Python for a tutorial. We also have the Ingestion service if you want to send data directly, and we have an open Remote management protocol to control devices from the Studio.
For larger teams, and companies with lots of data we offer an enterprise version of Edge Impulse. The enterprise version offers team collaboration on projects, a dataset builder that makes your internal data available to your whole team, integrations with your cloud buckets, transformation blocks that let you extract ML features from thousands of files in one go, and custom processing and deployment blocks for your organization. You can find documentation under Organizations or contact us via [email protected] for more information.
