Amazon recently announced that AWS Panorama Appliance is now generally available. The AWS Panorama Appliance is a computer vision appliance designed to be deployed on the user’s specific network in order to analyze images provided by an on-premises camera.

AWS Panorama works as a machine learning appliance and software development kit (SDK) that enables developers to bring computer vision to on-premises cameras to make predictions locally with high accuracy and low latency. With this appliance, users can automate tasks that have traditionally required human inspection to improve visibility into potential issues.

With the AWS Panorama Appliance, users can evaluate manufacturing quality, identify bottlenecks in industrial processes, and monitor workplace security even in environments with little or no internet connectivity.
