Low light, multi camera system supports autonomous machines

E-con Systems has launched the e-CAM82_CUOAGX 4K ultra-low-light camera powered by the Nvidia Jetson AGX Orin system-on-a-module and based on the Sony Starvis IMX485 sensor.

This large sensor camera (1/1.2in) 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.

E-con Systems senior product manager, Gomathi Sankar, said: “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.”

The camera houses Sony’s Starvis IMX485 sensor with a pixel size of 2.9 by 2.9µm, which is double the size of most 4K sensors available today. This helps ensure high sensitivity even in absolute darkness.

This multi-camera solution can connect up to six cameras to have an extended field of view for building 360-degree surround-view systems.
