Shanghai, China, Feb 1, 2019

It comprises an ESP32-based development board (ESP-EYE), the Espressif IoT development framework (ESP-IDF) and the Espressif AI development framework (ESP-WHO). Espressif’s AIoT dev board integrates a digital microphone, as well as a 2-megapixel camera, which makes it ideal for creating applications relating to face detection, face recognition and speech recognition. The board also supports image transmission over Wi-Fi, debugging through a micro-USB port and different power interfaces. Additionally, ESP-EYE offers sufficient storage space with 8MB of PSRAM and 4MB of flash.

ESP-WHO is a face-detection and face-recognition development framework based on Espressif's ESP32 chip. It can be used with the ESP-EYE development board or another ESP32 development board, such as ESP-WROVER-KIT. With ESP-WHO, users can easily build such projects as a coffee machine that brews coffee according to their particular preferences, or home appliances that shut down automatically when unsupervised children are in the vicinity.
