e-con Systems launches DepthVista_MIPI_IRD ToF camera for Nvidia Jetson
e-con Systems, an embedded camera manufacturer and solution provider, has launched DepthVista_MIPI_IRD, a 3D time-of-flight (ToF) camera for deploying with Nvidia Jetson AGX Orin/AGX Xavier processors.
Last year e-con Systems launched a 3D USB camera solution powered by ToF technology, specifically designed for applications that operate in indoor environments. The firm has since received several requests for a 3D depth camera suitable for outdoor environments that can also work with the Nvidia Jetson processor family through a MIPI-CSI2 interface. This was the motivation behind the DepthVista_MIPI_IRD.
The camera uses a wide spectral range (940nm/850nm) to deliver precise, 3D imaging in outdoor as well as indoor embedded vision applications. It indeed uses the MIPI CSI 2 interface to connect to the Nvidia processors, and has a scalable depth range up to 12m (6m by default). Multiple cameras can be used without interference noise to provide reliable depth data. On-camera depth processing is used to avoid complications such as running depth matching algorithms on the host platform.
