As other Jetson Nano platforms, this ADLINK’s dev kit supports NVIDIA Jetpack SDK, OpenCV, and ADLINK’s EVA software. Moreover, the company mentioned they will provide ready-to-use AI-vision applications related to Pose Detection and Object Classification with open source training. See ADLINK’s EVA portal to get documentation info.  

The company also mentioned, “The AI Camera Dev Kit eliminates tedious integration effort with its built-in no-code GUI software (EVA) and two AI applications with sample code. This kit enables users to start their AI vision proof of concepts in just five minutes.”
