New Stereo Vision Processor Announced

Jason Peck writes, "I am the CEO over at Focus Robotics, a New Hampshire based company specializing in vision processors and systems for robotics and automation. At this year's RoboBusiness event we'll be demonstrating the new nDepth vision processor. The processor generates real-time depth information using a pair of cameras and is intended to help companies looking to improve or add navigation and object interaction systems. I have written a press release for the processor". The nDepth vision processor can process of to 60 752x480 frames per second using Xilinx FPGAs to do depth processing in hardware.

The Focus Robotics product is pretty cool. For the demos, they had three sets of stereo cameras set up with three displays. The displays were grey scale based on the range of the objects in view.

Sounds interesting, but still pretty expensive at "less than $1500". I'm developing a stereo vision system which would be far less expensive.

Eventually I hope you'll be able to buy vision systems like this in the shops at about the same price as an ordinary webcam.

Drool. Sigh.

I'm interested, posted 11 May 2005 at 14:27 UTC by ROB.T. » (Master)

In the article it looks like I can interface this system to an ATMega128 - is that correct? Because if it is I want one.
