e-con Systems™, a leading embedded OEM camera company and an NVIDIA Elite Partner, today launched the e-CAM82_CUOAGX – a 4K ultra-low-light camera powered by the NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Orin™ system-on-a-module and based on the Sony STARVIS IMX485 sensor. The product will be officially launched at Embedded World 2022, to be held at the Exhibition Centre in Nuremberg, Germany, from June 21st to 23rd.
This large sensor camera (1/1.2”) can be readily integrated with NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin and is designed to address the rising processing needs of AI-based embedded vision applications such as autonomous mobile robots and agricultural vehicles. This large sensor size will also enable e-CAM82_CUOAGX to capture high-resolution images with more detail and clarity.
In addition, this low-light camera houses the Sony STARVIS IMX485 sensor with a large pixel size of 2.9µm (H) x 2.9µm (V), which is double the size of most 4K sensors available in the market today. This, in turn, will ensure high sensitivity even in absolute darkness.
e-CAM82_CUOAGX is a multi-camera solution that can connect up to 6 cameras to have an extended field of view for building 360-degree surround-view systems. Further, e-con Systems will support any customization required on NVIDIA Isaac ROS to reduce the camera integration efforts for robotic vision systems.
“NVIDIA Jetson platforms are powerful AI computers for energy-efficient autonomous machines. Being an elite camera ecosystem partner of NVIDIA, e-con Systems designs and manufactures numerous Jetson-based vision solutions to help machines see the world with high-quality cameras. e-CAM82_CUOAGX is a Sony STARVIS IMX485-based ultra-low light 4K camera solution specially designed for NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin. This large sensor camera and the AGX Orin development kit are the ideal combo for edge AI-enabled systems like autonomous machines and Intelligent Transport Systems.”, said Gomathi Sankar, Senior Product Manager at e-con Systems™
“NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin complements e-con’s multi-camera solutions to deliver high-quality, 4K vision-based applications for autonomous machines,” said Durga Peddireddy, Jetson partner ecosystem and camera solutions lead at NVIDIA. “This multi-camera offering also supports the widely adopted GMSL interface that extends connectivity for areas such as industrial robotics.”
e-CAM82_CUOAGX in combination with NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin (the latest system-on-a- module from NVIDIA that offers 8x the performance of its previous generation) is set to revolutionize edge-based AI analytics applications, offering a maximum performance of 275 TOPS. It is a high-resolution camera that is capable of streaming Full HD @ 90fps and 4K UHD @ 72fps.
