30 FPS Image Processing & Object Detection on MCUs


30 FPS Image Processing & Object Detection using 256KB RAM & with just a Cortex-M7 MCU! Ya, you heard that Right! It can even run on Cortex-M4F at 80MHz! Faster Objects, More Objects (FOMO) is a ground-breaking algorithm brought by Edge Impulse that brings real-time object detection, tracking and counting to constrained microcontrollers. FOMO is 30x faster than MobileNet SSD and runs in <200K of RAM.


The smallest version of FOMO runs with less than 100KB RAM & at 10 FPS on a Cortex-M4F at 80MHz.

Of course there are some limitations, but I am confident that the team will optimize & improve in the coming months. Can't wait to get hands-on!


Limitations as of now are:

1. Works better on smaller objects

2. Objects should not be that close to each other
