Multi-camera solutions from e‑con Systems

Many embedded vision applications require an extended field of view which is not met using a single camera system. This might be needed for the purpose of creating a 180-degree or even a 360-degree vision system. e-con Systems has recognized this need in the market early and has developed a wide range of multi-camera solutions.

Being an elite partner to NVIDIA, e-con has unmatched platform expertise when it comes to the Jetson processors. Leveraging this, we have built camera solutions that can be readily evaluated with NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin, AGX Xavier, Xavier NX, TX2 NX, and Nano. We also offer multi-camera products for Texas Instruments’ TDA4VM processor as well as Qualcomm processors. These cameras come with features such as high resolution & frame rate, high dynamic range, excellent low light sensitivity, superior NIR performance, global shutter & rolling shutter, and more.

Key differentiators of e-con’s multi-camera solutions

  • Proprietary 180-degree stitching algorithm for creating a 180-degree image.
  • Ability to connect up to 8 cameras to a single host system.
  • External trigger support for smooth synchronized multi-camera streaming and fusion with external sensors like IMU, GPS, and LiDAR.
  • Flexibility to opt for both hardware and software-level synchronization based on the end application requirements.
  • Value-added services such as form factor customization, carrier board design, mechanical enclosure design, lens fixation, ISP tuning, etc.

Where are multi-camera systems used?

Some of the popular embedded systems that might need a multi-camera setup are AMRs (Autonomous Mobile Robots), airport kiosks, smart trolley & checkout systems, automated sports broadcasting devices, and fleet management systems.

How many cameras are required for the multi-camera system in my device?

The number of cameras to be integrated into a system varies from application to application. It depends on many factors like the desired imaging accuracy, sharpness of details, the position of target objects, Field of View (FoV), and processing power of the host platform. A higher number of cameras can offer a higher resolution, prevent lens distortion, and enable a larger field of view.

What are the key factors to be considered while integrating a multi-camera solution?

Integrating a multi-camera into your embedded system is often a complex task. The factors you need to consider for this include number of cameras, mode of operation, camera interface, and host platform.
