Kinsei DemoKit v2: People monitoring made simple

The new Kinsei DemoKit v2 allows to test the Xetal technology with minimal installation effort. Simply place the provided device near a wall in the room, for example below a TV. Turn it on and connect with the supplier software to see all provided demos in action. The DemoKit also implements the standard API that any Kinsei Device uses. Therefore, it can be use for developing products and applications to be deployed with any final product based on Kinsei. Read more on the newly released kinsei brochure.

What is the demokit v2

The DemoKit looks or is actually made out of a commercially available TV SoundBar (the LG SH3B), where up to 6 kinsei sensors are integrated together with a sensor controller. When available the device will retain its original sound functions, while also gaining the capability to detect and track people in the front area. The DemoKit v2 is provided with demonstration software , which allow to explore demo applications such as people tracking, counting and sofa detection. We also provide support for the development of application accessing directly the kit data in form of interface specs and Kinsei API libraries.

DemoKit Available versions

Model v2.0: It is composed of a (currently) LG TV Sound Bar with integrated kinsei sensors and Intel Edison processing core. Available from January 2017

Model  v2.0lc: The essential for developers in the tracking space. It looks like a Sound Bar but it only contains the Kinsei electronics form the v2.0, making the demo kit lower cost with no performance penalties. Available from Spring 2017

Model v2.1: Similar to the v2.0lc, this kit is will use a MT7688AN as processing unit with a custom built OpenWRT OS. An essential kit for developments aiming at embedding the technology in low cost, custom and lower performance systems. Available 2H2017
