Spotlight#1 NVIDIA Metropolis: simplify vision AI development with enterprise-class solutions
Great events include exciting collaborations, let’s start our tour at ISC West with the reComputer of Jetson exhibition and demo work with Lumeo, at the NVIDIA Metropolis booth.
At the NVIDIA booth, we collaborated with Lumeo to offer a no-code custom video analytics solution that runs on Seeed’s latest reComputer J4012. The device is powered by NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX 16GB module, which provides up to 100 TOPS AI performance. With this solution, AI can be easily integrated into your current system to gain intelligent insights and build custom solutions quickly.
Lumeo’s platform builds on NVIDIA pre-trained models, NVIDIA TAO Toolkit, and the NVIDIA DeepStream SDK, which pave the fastest path to market for vision AI solutions. You can quickly deploy and scale your custom AI solution on-premises, working with Seeed’s reComputer, or in the cloud, and then manage it from the cloud. Using drag-and-drop tools, pre-built analytic building blocks, ready-to-use AI models, first-class APIs, and support for custom code, Lumeo lets providers instantly add AI-powered analytics to their own solution or extend existing VMS and camera installations to increase revenue and bottom-line.
“It’s a great honor to join NVIDIA Metropolis,” said Eric Pan, Founder, and CEO at Seeed. “We look forward very much to seeing more AIoT solutions scaling up to bring digital transformation to different business sectors.”
NVIDIA Metropolis makes it easier and more cost-effective for enterprises, governments, and integration partners to use world-class AI-enabled solutions to improve critical operational efficiency and safety problems. The NVIDIA Metropolis ecosystem contains a large and growing breadth of members who are investing in the most advanced AI techniques and most efficient deployment platforms, and using an enterprise-class approach to their solutions. Members can gain early access to NVIDIA platform updates to further enhance and accelerate their AI application development efforts. Further, the program offers the opportunity for members to collaborate with industry-leading experts and other AI-driven organizations.
Spotlight#2 Lumeo: no-code custom video analytics in minutes
At Lumeo’s booth, we showcased reComputer J4012 coupled with Lumeo’s video analytics platform, the Universal AI Bridge enables any camera to run any AI model and basic to advanced analytics. The possibilities are endless, with use cases such as video verification for alarm reduction, license plate recognition, facial recognition, fall detection, and more, now enabled with any IP camera or NVR.
Take the example of retail solutions, using the Person Detection, Occupancy Monitor, and Line Crossing models and reComputer J4012, the mall’s integrator can quickly create and deploy a solution that used existing camera and VMS infrastructure to make the retail experience smoother.
Lumeo’s video analytics platform works for numerous applications, including enhanced security industry and improved efficiency in retail and hospitality settings, and more.
Lumeo’s self-serve signups are now open, along with new freemium plans that let anyone build & deploy vision ai solutions for free and scale up as they go. For all the developers, tinkerers, R&D & technical physical security teams building solutions with video and vision AI. Integrators can easily integrate AI into their existing systems using Lumeo, consolidating analytics needs and integrating them into a VMS system. This allows for seamless integration of AI-driven analytics with existing systems, providing real-time insights.

Spotlight#3: CVEDIA: out-of-box AI video analytics, powered by synthetic data.
At CVEDIA booth, Seeed collaborates with CVEDIA on intelligent security solutions running on reComputer J4012 – Orin NX to enable businesses to quickly generate insights from their video streams such as how long people loiter in an area, the estimated size of a crowd, and if the crowd size increases or decreases in real-time, monitoring the flow of people, detecting intruders, detecting and predicting the direction of vehicles, detecting if a package has been removed from a specific area, and many more.
What are the use cases of crowd size estimation?
- Event Management: Monitor attendance, detect changes in crowd size and behavior, and improve safety and security measures.
- Retail Analytics: Analyze foot traffic, measure customer engagement, and optimize store layout and marketing strategies.
- Public Safety and Security: Monitor public spaces and gatherings, detect suspicious behavior, and respond to emergencies in a timely manner.
- Traffic Monitoring: Count vehicles and pedestrians, track congestion, and optimize transportation planning and infrastructure.
- Tourism and Hospitality: Monitor tourist attractions, manage crowds in high-traffic areas, and improve the visitor experience and satisfaction.
CVEDIA supports synthetic data generated from simulations and provides an inexpensive alternative to the real-world data used to train AI algorithms. Use SecuRT’s Video Analytics with advanced deep learning algorithms to detect and classify objects in real-time video streams. CVEDIA provides many Video Analytics and Computer Vision off-the-shelf AI models that can be tailored to fit your specific use case. With this out-of-the-box solution, you will find different ready-to-use AI models for FREE. Create cutting-edge security products for your customers, deployed on-premise with real-time insights.

Spotlight#4: Cochl: audio & machine listening at the edge
Cochl showcased their sound event detection using our reComputer J2021, powered by Jetson Xavier NX and reSpeaker Mic Array. What sound can Cochl detect at the edge? There are 30+ target sounds available at Cochl.Sesne including Gunshot, Scream, Knock, Glass break, Baby cry, Fire/smoke alarm, Cough, Dog bark, and Doorbell. In public spaces, Sound AI can identify gunshots and call for help. Cochl’s technology can also detect and categorize sounds from other emergencies, like screams or breaking glass, and provide quick solutions to prevent dangerous situations or crimes.
Cochl’s sound AI technology is also integrated with the DUGU‘s patrol robot. The robot constantly patrols, monitoring for sounds such as screams, yelling, and breaking glass, and is prepared to respond to emergency situations 24/7. DOGU’s security robots also leverage Seeed Jetson hardware and provide a stable operation of security services by deploying self-driving robots equipped with patrol-specific AI and synchronous monitoring solutions (1:N control).
