Typical Platform Usage
A typical usage scheme would be as follows:
- Customer acquires a GAPPoc B evaluation kit.
- Customer runs evaluation tests out of the box.
- Once satisfied with the performance, customer designs their own product.
Turning the GAPPoc platform into a product usually involves the following:
- On the hardware side: Adapting the provided reference design to fit customer’s mechanical constraints and specific needs; for instance, replacing the BLE module by a preferred alternative or optimizing some test features.
- On the software side: Reflecting hardware changes such as different radio schemes; also, for best performance in the customer’s target use cases, retraining the neural network and tuning accordingly the embedded algorithms (e.g., weight and biases), etc.
Please bear in mind that although we provide very good quality algorithms and applicative software that are fit for reliable evaluation, the platform will nevertheless typically need some adjustments to best handle corner cases and specificities of the target usage context.
In a scenario where the platform runs 24 hours a day, waking up every 5 minutes on average to take a picture and processing it to have a result before going back to sleep, the full platform could run for over 7.5 years on a single 3.6 V, 2400 mAh AA-size battery (similar to, e.g., SAFT LS14500). This includes all on-board components, from GAP8 to memories to the TIR sensor, except the radio module as it is very use case dependent (type of radio, target range, etc.). The model accuracy on the current training data exceeds 93%. With such performance, the proposed system delivers up to 20 times the power efficiency of comparable solutions.
