Cameras are expected to be the eagle’s eye, always sharp and focused, which brings us to…
e-con Systems, manufacturer of cameras for original equipment manufacturers (OEM), has introduced a 3 megapixel GMSL2 high dynamic range (HDR) IP69K camera, the STURDeCAM3. It is powered by Sony ISX031 sensor and designed for use with NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin.
The press release mentions that its key features include high imaging quality, rugged design, multi-camera support and versatile applications. The camera is engineered to improve safety in autonomous mobility applications, especially in challenging outdoor lighting conditions.
The STURDeCAM31 delivers HDR performance of up to 120 dB and LFM (Low Flicker Mode). This ensures clear imaging of dynamic scenes without motion blur or overexposed images. It meets IP69K standards, making it durable and capable of withstanding harsh conditions including dust, water, high temperature, high pressure and heavy vibrations.
“Through its superior HDR and LFM capabilities, we are transforming mobility and enhancing global safety.” said Gomathi Sankar, business unit head-industrial cameras at e-con Systems.
It includes gigabit multimedia serial link (GMSL) monitoring which ensures the safety and reliability of data transmission over the GMSL, preventing system failures, and enabling timely diagnostics for enhanced security in applications. It is compatible with NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin system-on-modules, allowing synchronized multi-camera setups with support for up to eight cameras through the GMSL2 interface.
The camera represents a significant advancement in imaging technology, providing solutions for demanding applications in the autonomous mobility sector. It finds its usage in various applications such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), delivery robots, and autonomous agriculture vehicles.
