e-con Systems STEEReoCAM Stereo Vision camera

e-con Systems, a developer of embedded camera solutions, has announced the availability of STEEReoCAM, a MIPI Stereo Vision camera designed for use with the NVIDIA Jetson Nano robotics and IoT (Internet of Things) development platform. The new camera is ideal for accurate depth sensing with flexible depth range for autonomous systems, drones and robotic vehicles.

The STEEReoCAM is a 2MP 3D MIPI compliant stereo camera that works with the NVIDIA Jetson Nano, AGX Xavier, and Jetson TX2 development kits.

The camera is based around a pair of OmniVision OV2311 global shutter monochrome CMOS image sensors, with precalibrated lenses mounted on an M1 S-Mount holder and with a baseline separation of 100mm. The integrated six-axis IMU (inertial measurement system) allows the system to detect both linear and angular acceleration. Using OmniVision Pixel 3-GS technology, resolutions of up to 1600 x 1300 at 30 fps are supported.

Other features of the STEEReoCAM Stereo Vision camera include:

  • NVIDIA CUDA-accelerated SDK
  • TaraXL ROS (Robot Operating System) wrapper
  • Depth ranges from 0.95m to 8m
  • 2-lane MIPI Interface.
