SHANGHAI, July 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Robotics and open source hardware provider, DFRobot today announced the release of HuskyLens, an easy-to-use, artificial intelligence vision sensor designed to enhance innovation for makers and individuals who strive to be both the creators and consumers of tech.

Targeting the makers, this innovative AI camera is compatible with a range of applications including Arduino, Raspberry Pi, LattePanda, and micro:bit, ensuring that makers can take their inventions to the next level, irrespective of their preferred programming platform.

Ricky Ye, CEO of DFRobot said:

“HuskyLens has been designed with creators and makers in mind, and has infused the latest AI technology with compact design and exceptionally fast processors to ensure that users are only limited by their imagination.
