Arduino Portenta Vision Shield – LoRa®

The Portenta Vision Shield LoRa® brings industry-rated features to your Arduino Portenta. This hardware add-on will let you run embedded computer vision applications, connect wirelessly via LoRa® to the Arduino Cloud or your own infrastructure, and activate your system upon the detection of sound events.

The shield comes with:

  • a 320×320 pixels camera sensor: use one of the cores in Portenta to run image recognition algorithms using the OpenMV for Arduino editor

  • long range 868/915MHz LoRa wireless connectivity: get your Portenta H7 connected to the Internet of Things with low power consumption

  • two on-board microphones for directional sound detection: capture and analyse sound in real-time

  • JTAG connector: perform low-level debugging of your Portenta board or special firmware updates using an external programmer

  • SD-Card connector: store your captured data in the card, or read configuration files

The Vision Shield LoRa® has been designed to work with the Arduino Portenta H7. The Portenta boards feature multicore 32-bit ARM® Cortex™ processors running at hundreds of megahertz, with megabytes of program memory and RAM. Portenta boards come with WiFi and Bluetooth.

Arduino has teamed up with OpenMV to offer you a free license to the OpenMV IDE, an easy way into computer vision using MicroPython as a programming paradigm.
