Raspberry Pi at Embedded World 2024: AI camera, M.2 HAT+ M Key board, and 15.6-inch monitor

While Raspberry Pi has not officially announced anything new for Embedded World 2024 so far, the company is currently showcasing some new products there including an AI camera with a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W and a Sony IMX500 AI sensor, the long-awaited M.2 HAT+ M Key board, and a 15.6-inch monitor.

Raspberry Pi AI Camera Sony IMX500 at Embedded World 2024

Raspberry Pi AI Camera kit content and basic specs:

  • SBC – Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W with Broadcom BCM2710A1 quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 @ 1GHz (overclockable to 1.2 GHz), 512MB LPDDR2
  • AI Camera
  • 20cm cables

The kit comes preloaded with MobileNet machine vision model but users can also import custom TensorFlow models. This new kit is not really a surprise as we mentioned Sony and Raspberry Pi worked on exactly this when we covered the Sony IMX500 sensor.

I got the information from Tam HANNA who is currently at Embedded World 2024 and noticed the camera. He filmed a video of the kit showing object recognition and body segmentation in action.

We don’t have price and availability information, but considering the retail package is ready as well I would not be surprised if the Raspberry Pi AI Camera launches in the next few weeks or months.

M.2 HAT+ M Key

The second Raspberry Pi hardware is even less of a surprise since Raspberry Pi has already told everyone they were working on it, and the official Raspberry Pi M.2 PCIe HAT+ is being showcased at Embedded World, and should launch very soon as we noted during our recent MAKERDISK SSDs review with the Raspberry Pi 5.

I took the photos above from a German distributor, but it also shows up in Tam’s video above. I’m not sure how it will differ from the many affordable third-party M.2 PCIe HAT+ boards for the Raspberry Pi 5 that already exist and work pretty well. Since there’s an M Key model, I’d also eventually expect an E-Key HAT+ for wireless and AI modules.

Raspberry Pi 15.6-inch monitor

The last Raspberry Pi item I noticed at Embedded World is a 15.6-inch monitor courtesy of Bret.dk.

Again, we don’t have price and availability information for the Raspberry Pi monitor and associated accessories. If you are at Embedded World 2024, and I missed anything interesting from the Raspberry Pi stand, let me know in the comments section.

Bret.dk has updated to clarify the panel is 60Hz not 30Hz after James from Raspberry Pi confirmed it was a mistake on the spec sheet.

NOTE: This post initially mentioned that the panel was running at 30Hz, however this was incorrect due to a typo on the booth’s spec sheet. The panel is indeed running at 60Hz!

Quote: “I’d also eventually expect a B Key model for wireless modules.”

Aren’t most wireless modules E Key devices? I thought B Key is mostly used for M.2 SATA SSDs…
