e-con Systems has launched STURDeCAM31 - a 3MP GMSL2 HDR IP69K camera powered by a Sony ISX031 sensor for NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin. Created for automotive grade, this small form factor camera has been engineered to make autonomous mobility safer by providing reliable and superior imaging quality even in demanding outdoor lighting conditions.

Employing Sony ISX031's sub-pixel HDR technology, the camera has been fine-tuned to deliver impressive HDR performance of up to 120dB and LFM, thereby supplying a solution for capturing dynamic scenes without motion blur. With the reliable GMSL2 interface, this rugged camera meets IP69K standards, providing durability and protection against dust, water, high temperature, high pressure, heavy vibration and shock.

The camera is compatible with the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin system on modules, providing synchronised multi-camera solutions that can support up to eight cameras through the GMSL2 interface. This powerful combination of the camera and NVIDIA Jetson Orin platform for edge AI and robotics is a game changer in the autonomous mobility industry, particularly for ADAS, delivery robots, autonomous agriculture vehicles, etc.

"In a rapidly evolving market with surging demand for autonomous mobility in challenging outdoor lighting conditions, whether it be robotics or automotive vehicles, STURDeCAM31 emerges as the perfect fit. Through its superior HDR and LFM capabilities, we are transforming mobility and enhancing global safety. Our IP69K-rated cameras set a new benchmark for reliability, ruggedness, and performance, effortlessly enduring the rigours of high vibrations, shocks, dust, and water environments. In collaboration with NVIDIA, we stand at the forefront of pioneering a safer future through cutting-edge imaging technology," said Gomathi Sankar, Business Unit Head-Industrial Cameras at e-con Systems.
