SAFR Embedded SDK Overview


The Embedded SDK is for use when the facial recognition software needs to run on a device with limited resources — RAM, CPU, and memory — without any internet or cloud connectivity. However, the device must still perform, for example, detection and recognition of images with varying conditions with a minimum response time.

Using this SDK, developers can create applications that can:

The SAFR Embedded SDK ships as a tar.gz file that contains the necessary libraries, recognizer, and detector model files, and a sample command line tool called Panoptes.
