Join the Seeed Vision Challenge and Explore Conservation Tech!

Join the Seeed Vision Challenge, an opportunity for conservation innovators to harness the power of AI vision sensors for environmental monitoring and protection.

Want to deploy the latest AI sensors to wildlife conservation and environmental protection? Don't miss out on your chance! The Seeed Vision Challenge is calling all conservation innovators to harness the power of Seeed's Grove Vision AI Module v2, for environmental monitoring, wildlife protection, and beyond. Here's why this challenge is a game-changer for conservation tech:

  • Empowering Conservation with AI Vision Sensors: Traditional sensors have their limits. For instance, PIR Sensors for motion detection, Ultrasonic Sensors for measuring distances, Thermopiles and IR Sensors for temperature readings, and Contact Sensors for detecting touch or proximity—all have their unique features. However, vision sensors excel in precision detection. While traditional sensors might guess if someone has fallen, a vision sensor can confirm the event accurately.
  • Unparalleled Flexibility: Equipped with the right AI model, a vision sensor can act as a termite detector, a snake sensor, or even spot blockages at fire exits—tasks that previously required complex IP cameras or regular manual checks. AI vision sensors bring a level of adaptability absent in their traditional counterparts.

We invite you to unleash your creativity and join us in exploring the potential of AI vision sensors for conservation. Share your ideas and projects to tackle real-world conservation challenges, from wildlife monitoring to habitat preservation!


Steps to participate in this Vision Challenge
  • Step 1: Submit your ideas
    Tell us what you’d like to create or the real-world problems you aim to tackle using the Grove Vision AI V2 Sensor. We’ll review all submissions and select the most innovative ideas. Chosen participants will receive a complimentary Grove Vision AI Module v2 and a compatible OV5647 camera module to bring their concepts to life.

    Seize this unique opportunity by submitting your ideas now—availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

    After you submit your idea, we will review it, and if your idea is selected, we will contact you via the email address you provided and ship you the products. Should you have any question, please feel free to reach out to [email protected], and we will be there to support you.

  • Step 2: Publish your content and win BIG!
    Showcase your work by May 31st on platforms like Hackster, Instructables, or YouTube or any others, and then share the project link with us!

    We’re open to all content but consider these directions:

  1. Conduct diverse evaluations to test its capabilities. Try running models like Mobilenet V1, V2, Efficientnet-lite, Yolo v5 & v8 in TensorFlow and PyTorch to test its performance
  2. Apply it to your own applications and solve your challenges by training your own models or using our pre-trained model library.
  3. Share your user experience by integrating it with popular development boards like Raspberry Pi or ESP32. Let us know how it performs as a subprocessor for image processing, and whether or not it meets your expectations
  4. Impress us with your creativity.


✨Before the end of June, we will select outstanding content from all submissions, and the exceptional creators will receive the following benefits:✨

  1. 3 Top Picks – Our favourite 3 publications will each receive a $300 USD coupon to purchase any Seeed products.
  2. Alpha test our to-be-released SenseCAP Watcher - For those whose work involves Computer Vision, TinyML, or LLM, we’ll select participants to join our alpha test of this new product—with no limit on the number of selections, just great work.
  3. Official Promotions – Exceptional content may be featured through official Seeed, Himax, and ARM channels, like social media or trade shows.
  4. Co-Creation Opportunity – Your project could be selected of our Seeed-Co-Create program, potentially turning your work into a product with a significant royalty for every unit sold.


Submit your content before 31st May. We can’t wait to see your creativity, join our Vision Challenge NOW.

Should you have any question, please feel free to reach out to [email protected], and we will be there to support you.
