Jointly developed 3D depth cameras

17-08-2021 | Leopard Imaging | Test & Measurement

Leopard Imaging Inc and eYs3D are jointly developing the first GMSL and GMSL2 3D depth cameras. These cameras are ideal for autonomous mobile operation, allowing them to produce visual data rapidly over large areas, including outdoor environments and extensive manufacturing floors.

These are SerDes cameras that carry high-speed video, bidirectional control data, and power over a single coaxial cable may be utilised for longer distances. These are IP67-certified cameras compatible with embedded platforms such as the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier developer kit.

Furthermore, the company is rolling out three new stereo depth cameras based on 3D vision technology from eYs3D. The high-precision stereo depth cameras provide a series of ready-to-use wide field-of-view features that give the ability to see more objects and offer higher resolution. Its full integration services will assist customers to include this camera into autonomous mobile robots, AIoT, AGV and other computer vision projects.

With eYs3D stereo depth-sensing technology, the cameras include dual RGB sensors for multiple resolutions of RGB and depth map output at USB, making the products ideal for the development and production of 3D sensing and capture products.

"As industrial and consumer markets see exponential growth in robotics, Leopard Imaging expects to be supplying top tier customers around the globe with new 3D vision cameras offering enhanced capabilities for better productivity and accuracy," said Bill Pu, co-founder and president, Leopard Imaging. "Our partnership with eYs3D enables us to stay on top of the latest 3D vision advances to help meet heavy demand in these sectors."

"eYs3D's new 3D depth perception hardware and software offer advanced features and a larger field of vision that still enables easy integration into camera reference designs," said James Wang. "eYs3D has a long-term history of collaboration with Leopard Imaging and we look forward to working with them on the first GMSL 3D cameras and to their success in reaching high-growth markets."
