AI is no longer limited to powerful computing environments such as GPUs or high-end CPUs and is often integrated into systems with limited resources like patient monitoring, diagnostic systems in vehicles, and manufacturing equipment. Fitting AI onto hardware with limited memory and power supply requires deliberate trade-offs between size of model, accuracy, inference speed, and power consumption — and that process is still challenging in many frameworks for AI development.

With MATLAB and Simulink you can leverage the well-established model-based design workflow to bring your AI models to any edge device, taking advantage of automated code generation, datatype optimization and more.


We will show a typical workflow for deploying AI models to edge devices:

  • Model Selection: Identify less complex models and neural networks that still achieve the required accuracy
  • Size Reduction: Tune the hyperparameters and select appropriate datatypes to generate a more compact model
  • Hardware-in-the-loop Tests: Validate the correctness, memory requirements and runtime performance of your models directly on the hardware
