  • Mono Global Shutter: Excellent detail and sensitivity allow it to get real-time, higher accuracy and frame rates

Description

Overview

This Arducam quadrascopic camera bundle incorporates four 1MP OV9281 global shutter cameras, and the cutting-edge MIPI stereo camera breakthrough from Arducam – The Arducam Camarray HAT. As the upgraded version of Arducam Synched Stereo Camarray HAT, the Camarray further pushes the multi-camera limits and doubles the interfacing capabilities to allow 4 synchronized MIPI camera modules to be interfaced to a single MIPI CSI-2 slot on prevailing single-board computers like Raspberry Pi, Jetson Nano, and Jetson Xavier NX. Also, as the Camarray HAT releases, Arducam starts to support a variable baseline for stereo camera applications with some modified Arducam camera modules, such as those OV9281 ones included in this bundle. Since no shared camera board or clock-sharing soldering is required for the image sensors, you can kick off your prototyping for stereo camera applications and then decide the optimal baseline. This camera can only get four images. Arducam also accepts subsequent customizations for your stereo camera applications.

Applications

  • Head, and eye tracking
  • Gesture detection
  • Motion detection
  • 3D reconstruction
  • Depth-related vision applications, etc.

      Package Including

      • 4 x 1MP OV9281 global shutter camera module with low distortion M12 lens
      • 1 x Arducam Camarray quadrascopic stereo camarray HAT
      • 4 x 150mm/6inch 22pin to 22pin camera cables
      • 1 x 300mm/12inch 15pin to 22pin camera cable
      • 1 x 73mm/2.87inch 15pin to 22pin camera cable
      • 4 x M2.5*10mm Nylon Hex Standoffs
      • 4 x M2.5 Nylon Nuts
      • 4 x M2.5*6mm Nylon Screws

      Note

      • Raspberry Pi board and Jetson Nano/Xavier NX are not included in the package.
      • This bundle kit is not recommended for Raspberry Pi Zero.(Due to the limitation of the memory)
      • The OV9281 cameras in this kit is a special version and cannot be used on Raspberry Pi or Jetson individually.
      • The driver of the kit is mainly developed based on the Raspberry Pi/Nvidia Jetson official board, and there is no guarantee that the third-party board can be used (due to the different allocation of hardware resources, it is not compatible with the driver)
      • This camera relies on kernel drivers to work – one kernel version, one camera driver. Up or downgrading your OS leads to a kernel bump, and you may need to re-install a matching driver.
      • The I2C signal and clock of each camera are fully synchronized . It is unavailable to capture the same frame of images at different exposure times for each camera.
      • The Camarray HAT is not sold alone for the following reasons:
        1. Most of the cameras on the market are not designed for synched stereo uses. We’ve modified our camera modules specifically for the Camarry HAT. Your own V1, V2 or HQ camera modules won’t directly work with it.
        2. The Camarray HAT requires different firmware for different Image sensors that are not natively working with your embedded systems. Your own OV9281 and OV7251 camera modules won’t directly work with it, and they are not easily interchangeable.

      Customization is required if you have extra requirements as the following:

      1. You need the camera module to run on other Video Modes and Frame Rates.
      2. You need to trigger the camera with an External Hardware trigger.
      3. You only want three images or one image.
