The IDS NXT Rio family feature a neural network that applies their "knowledge" acquired through deep learning to new data. Since IDS NXT cameras have a special AI core, neural networks are hardware-accelerated and run directly on the devices, allowing for inference times of a few milliseconds.

The IDS NXT Rio models are also ideal for industrial applications, with features such as industrial housing, RS232 interface, Gigabit Ethernet network connection with RJ45 connector, REST web service and OPC UA server.
