Revolutionary Ultra Wide-Angle camera, meeting the highest standards within the Blue UAS Framework, now out of the lab and available off-the-shelf.
Designed for the autonomous and semi-autonomous navigation of UAVs in all lighting and environmental conditions, with high performance in low-light conditions, both outdoor and indoor.
“The Immervision camera was ‘easily two times better than the nearest competitor’.”
– Ryan Kier, Senior Electrical Engineer at Teal
KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Ultra wide-angle Panomorph lens with smart pixel management, providing a 190 degrees field of view (FoV) with enhanced image quality.
The 190 degrees field of view captures more information than most cameras available for such applications and allows manufacturers to reduce the number of sensors required to monitor the 360 degrees surroundings of the drone.
With a 5 mega pixel image resolution, the pixel density is ideal for embedded computer vision applications, such as object detection, SLAM (Simultaneous Location and Mapping) and visual-inertial odometry.
Its sensitivity to low light improves the performance of navigation algorithms, allows for secure navigation from dawn-to-dusk and can eliminate the need to have to have additional illuminator source.
NO CUSTOM DEVELOPMENT IS REQUIRED,
THE MODULE IS READY FOR INTEGRATION.
Supported out-of- the-box by industry leading robotics platforms such as:
Drivers are available to facilitate the evaluation and minimize the integration effort by the drone providers.
THE BLUE UAS FRAMEWORK EXPLAINED
The Blue UAS framework is a well-known and highly respected program within the drone and UAV ecosystem.
For those unfamiliar with the term, Blue UAS is an American governmental framework from the DIU (Defense Innovation Unit), a Department of Defense (DoD) organization that accelerates commercial technology with the goal to provide a lift of competitive, healthy, sustainable and trusted sUAS components for various commercial and governmental applications.
During the development process, we collaborated with various providers to ensure the solution meets all requirements of the drone ecosystem, such as providing a compact, low-weight camera module with low-battery consumption able to operate under low-light conditions.
