Renesas Smart Fridge Demo with High-Performance RZ/G1 MPUs

Our Smart Fridge demo shows embedded vision implemented in a real home appliance via convolutional neural networks running on the dual-core Arm® Cortex-A15 Renesas RZ/G1 MPU with NEON acceleration. The fridge performs two separate vision algorithms – one for user identification using the front-camera and the other for fridge content identification using the internal camera.

Renesas RZ/G1 Series microprocessors (MPUs) give you the fast path to implement computer vision in your embedded industrial, medical, and consumer applications.

  • Rich 3D graphics and high-performance video codecs for engaging GUIs
  • Improved safety, security, and intelligence through real-time face and object identification
  • Advanced human-machine interaction via systems that understand their environment
