Overview

The Focus Robotics nDepth Stereo Vision Processor is a collection of individual IP Cores that work together to provide real-time depth perception. A Camera IP core interfaces to an external stereo camera and writes raw images to memory. A Calibration IP Core reads the raw images and generates rectified and undistorted images using translation coordinates from memory. A Correlation IP Core reads the calibrated images, performs the dense stereo matching, and writes the resulting disparity image to memory. A PCI or CUSTOM core is used to DMA the raw, calibrated, or disparity images to a host PC, DSP or embedded system as needed. All cores utilize a simple packet based interface for memory and control access.

Consulting Services

Focus Robotics can customize any these cores to suite your needs. We can also design a custom stereo, video, or interface core to your specification. Leverage our considerable experiance and design expertise for your next vision project.

FPGA Development System

An FPGA development system including nDepth™ vision processor, stereo camera, PCI interface and software is avialble to assist developers who are looking to evaluate the technology and incorporate it in their products. The nDepth™ vision processor itself is available for integration as a Xilinx Spartan3 FPGA or a Verilog IP core.
