Endpoint AI Applications

As AI mainstream popularity grows, so does the range of applications and opportunities businesses seek to develop, which span the breadth of IoT segments. Endpoint AI use cases align to three distinct areas:


Vision, such as object classification; Voice, including keyword detection; and Vibration, for example sensor fusion.

Intelligent Thermal Vision

Conservation challenges in remote areas require an energy-efficient, cost-sensitive solution. Arribada’s vision-based ML technology uses Arm microcontrollers and Mbed OS to identify and monitor wildlife.

Advanced Voice Control

Sensory’s TrulyHandsfree keyword recognition software works with Cortex-M55 to unlock high-accuracy, low-power, customizable voice control for devices and applications.

Predictive Maintenance

Cartesiam’s industry-agnostic AI solution enables anomaly detection and signal classification on microcontrollers based on Cortex-M, to monitor vibrations and other signal types and predict system failure.

Enabling Intelligence on the Smallest Devices

Advances in AI deployments mean that even the smallest, cost-sensitive devices can be made smarter and more capable. Arm IP, software, tools, and our partner ecosystem make development quicker and easier for product manufacturers implementing DSP and ML capabilities on-device.
