This is the lowest price I have seen (regularly $74.99). Possibly clearing out stock before Google I/O. Competes with similar products such as Nvidia Jetson Nano or Intel Neural Compute Stick. Used for machine learning.
A USB accessory that brings machine learning inferencing to existing systems. Works with Raspberry Pi and other Linux systems
Performs high-speed ML inferencing: The on-board edge TPU Coprocessor is capable of performing 4 trillion operations (tera-operations) per second (tops), using 0.5 watts for each tops (2 tops per watt). for example, it can execute state-of-the-art mobile vision models such as mobilenet V2 AT 400 FPS, in a power efficient manner
Works with Debian Linux: Connects to any debian-based Linux system with an included USB 3.0 Type-C cable
Supports tensorflow Lite: No need to build models from the ground up. Tensorflow Lite models can be compiled to run on the edge TPE
Supports automl vision edge: Easily build and deploy fast, high-accuracy custom image classification models to your device with automl vision edge
