JUN 30, 2016 –  e-con Systems launches a new USB 3.0 Stereo vision Camera

"Tara - USB 3.0 Stereo vision camera based on MT9V024 Global Shutter CMOS sensor from ON Semiconductor; Supports Stereo WVGA(1504x480) at 60 fps over USB 3.0 in uncompressed format."


e-con Systems announced the launch of Tara, a USB3.0 Stereo vision camera. Tara is based on the 1/3-inch MT9V024, a WVGA Global shutter monochrome CMOS image sensor from ON SemiconductorZ®. The Tara supports Stereo WVGA (1504x480) at 60fps over USB 3.0 in uncompressed format. This Stereo vision camera provides synchronized sensor frames to the host machine over USB 3.0 interface.

Tara is bundled with a Software Development Kit (SDK) with full source code for application development on top of OpenCV, enabling customers to develop their own Stereo Vision Camera based applications. e-con Systems also provides sample applications with source code, demonstrating synchronous stereo image capture, depth measurement , disparity map and point cloud. In addition to this, customers can also develop their Stereo Vision Camera algorithms on top of Tara SDK or integrate Tara directly in their product design.
