Quick links to get started with the DepthAI software

Software ecosystem

Software ecosystem that's built on top of the DepthAI API


DepthAI API (Python, C++) allows users to develop and deploy vision pipelines that run on the accelerated hardware blocks on our devices.

DepthAI Components

  • Nodes represent a sensor, accelerated hardware, or some compute function
  • Pipeline consists of linked nodes and gets deployed to the device where it runs on accelerated hardware blocks
  • Messages are used for communication between nodes. They hold data and metadata
  • Device represents Luxonis' device, either an OAK camera or a RAE. It handles connectivity and communication
  • Bootloader handles logic when booting the device and makes device accessible for connection
