New Multi-Camera Solution for NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin

The camera is designed to support AI-based embedded vision applications such as autonomous mobile robots By Mike Ball / 04 Jul 2022

Multi-camera solution for NVIDIA Jetsone-con Systems has launched the e-CAM82_CUOAGX, a 4K ultra-low-light camera designed for integration with the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin system-on-a-module and based on the Sony STARVIS IMX485 sensor. Capable of streaming Full HD at 90fps and 4K UHD at 72fps, the camera addresses the rising processing needs of AI-based embedded vision applications such as autonomous mobile robots and agricultural vehicles.

The camera features the Sony STARVIS IMX485 sensor with a large pixel size of 2.9µm (H) x 2.9µm (V), ensuring high sensitivity even in absolute darkness. The large sensor size also enables the e-CAM82_CUOAGX to capture high-resolution images with more detail and clarity.

e-CAM82_CUOAGX is a multi-camera solution that can connect up to 6 cameras, providing an extended field of view for 360-degree surround-view systems. e-con Systems will support any customization required on NVIDIA Isaac ROS to reduce the camera integration efforts for robotic vision systems.

Gomathi Sankar, Senior Product Manager at e-con Systems, commented: “NVIDIA Jetson platforms are powerful AI computers for energy-efficient autonomous machines. Being an elite camera ecosystem partner of NVIDIA, e-con Systems designs and manufactures numerous Jetson-based vision solutions to help machines see the world with high-quality cameras. e-CAM82_CUOAGX is a Sony STARVIS IMX485-based ultra-low light 4K camera solution specially designed for NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin. This large sensor camera and the AGX Orin development kit are the ideal combo for edge AI-enabled systems like autonomous machines and Intelligent Transport Systems.”

Durga Peddireddy, Jetson partner ecosystem and camera solutions lead at NVIDIA, noted: “NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin complements e-con’s multi-camera solutions to deliver high-quality, 4K vision-based applications for autonomous machines. This multi-camera offering also supports the widely adopted GMSL interface that extends connectivity for areas such as industrial robotics.”
