TYZX Introduces Long-Range 3D Vision Cameras

TYZX Stereo Vision Cameras Track People and Objects in Real-Time and Provide Unmanned Systems With Situational Awareness and Obstacle Avoidance

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwire - August 23, 2010) -  TYZX, the 3D vision technology company, today introduced TYZX DeepSea XD series of long-range stereo vision cameras for use with the TYZX G3 Embedded Vision System (EVS). The new XD cameras excel at providing accurate range data in real time at distances up to 128 meters and can be used for applications such as detecting and tracking people and objects.

The XD cameras extend the operating distance of TYZX's DeepSea G3 EVS -- small, fast, rugged, and smart 3D vision system that provides reliable, real-time range data for robots, security systems, and other applications.

The XD cameras feature longer stereo baselines of 33cm and 50 cm, Aptina CMOS WVGA imagers (752x480) with full-frame shutters, and 40º, 62º, or 80º horizontal field-of-view lenses. Each XD camera attaches to a specially configured G3 EVS system through a custom LVDS cable with ruggedized connectors. The XD cameras feature all-aluminum construction and are shipped pre-calibrated by TYZX. Color vision is available as an option. The cameras support full 60 fps operation and enable long-range applications to take full advantage of the real-time 3D vision capabilities of the TYZX G3 EVS.

"Computer vision applications such as person-tracking from the tops of buildings and ODOA on fast-moving unmanned systems require longer operating distances than those previously available from commercial stereo vision systems," said Ron Buck, President and CEO of TYZX. "Until now, developers of long-range applications were forced to build custom systems, which increased development times and costs. With the introduction of the XD Series, TYZX brings the benefits of real-time, low-latency, high-precision 3D vision to applications with operating ranges as close as 21cm or as far as 128 m. It's easier than ever now for advanced security and navigation applications to take advantage of real-time, low-latency 3D vision."
