Nerian Vision Technologies has released SceneScan – a new ROS-compatible 3D sensor system that is based on stereo vision. Unlike conventional depth cameras, stereo vision is a passive technology, which also works robustly in bright daylight and over long distances.
SceneScan is an embedded system that uses a powerful FPGA and state-of-the-art image processing algorithms to convert the imagery of a stereo cameras or two conventional cameras into a depth map or 3D point cloud. This can be done at frame rates of up to 100 fps and image resolutions up to 3 megapixels.
Together with SceneScan, Nerian also released the new Karmin2 stereo camera. Both devices work optimally together and form a fully featured 3D depth sensor system.
