COSMONiO® NOUS™ is a revolutionary single-board supercomputer based on NVIDIA® Kepler™ technology with 192 GPU cores. COSMONiO blends supercomputer-class hardware with the most advanced computer-vision and machine-learning software for unparalleled performance.
NOUS™ is a hardware platform for computer-vision and machine-learning applications. Such applications usually require a parallel architecture that enables concurrent execution of multiple tasks. NOUS™ is tiny and portable with the processing power of a supercomputer.
For the past few years COSMONiO focussed entirely on software development. However, each customer used a different type of computer for which the software needed to be optimised. This optimisation process was time-consuming and costly. So we asked ourselves: Is it worth investing time in platform-specific optimisation? What if we had a low-cost board that is capable of running our demanding software? This simple idea gave birth to NOUS™.
NOUS is ideal for embedded vision applications. For this reason, we have created a more durable case with mounting points for easy installation. Additional sensors or devices can be integrated directly into the NOUS enclosure. For example, the central image below shows NOUS being integrated with the LEAP Motion controller.
