The MYNT Depth utilizes the camera and the motion sensor to provide visually accurate SLAM results with higher precision, lower cost, simpler layout, along with the ability to achieve face and object recognition. The concept of combining binocular and IMU is the leading-edge technology in the current SLAM industry.The depth version of the product has a built-in depth calculation chip that can output depth images without the host computer. At the same time, the product is equipped with leading hardware solutions such as IR active light, IMU six-axis, hardware-level frame synchronization, global shutter, etc., up to 720p/60fps (120°FOV version) of synchronous image information, the recognition distance can reach 15m (50 °FOV version), accuracy up to millimeters (50° FOV version).
Using camera techniques such as frame synchronization, automatic exposure, and white balance control, the MYNT EYE Depth can produce synchronized image sources with high-precision, which decreases the difficulty of algorithms development, thus increasing efficiency. The Depth comes with six-axis sensor(IMU) and an infrared active light detector (IR). Among them, the six-axis sensor(IMU) can provide complementarity and correction of data from the visual positioning algorithms, and is suitable for visual inertial odometry(VIO) algorithms research to help improve the positioning accuracy. The infrared active light detector (IR) can help solve the problem of identification of objects such as indoor white walls and non-textured objects, as well as enhance the accuracy of image source recognition.The Binocular+IMU scheme provides accurate six-axis complementary data for VSLAM applications and is more accurate and robust than other single solutions. In addition, MYNT EYE Depth also provides a rich SDK interface and VSLAM open source project support, which can help customers quickly integrate solutions, accelerate product development process, and achieve rapid productization and implementation.
As a hardware product for in-depth research and development of stereo vision computing applications, MYNT EYE Depth can be widely used in the field of visual positioning navigation (vSLAM), including visual real-time positioning navigation system of driverless vehicle and robots, visual positioning system of UAV, obstacle avoidance navigation system for driverless Vehicle, Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), etc. At the same time, it can be used in field of Visual recognition, including Stereoscopic face recognition, three-dimensional object recognition, space motion tracking, three-dimensional gestures and somatosensory recognition. And of course, you can use it for measurement which includes assisted driving system (ADAS), binocular volume calculation, industrial visual screening, etc.
In order to ensure the quality of the output data of the camera products, we have calibrated the binocular and IMU. The product has passed various hardware stability tests, such as high temperature and humidity continuous work and operation, low-temperature dynamic aging, high-temperature operation, low-temperature storage, whole-machine thermal shock, sinusoidal vibration and random vibration tests to ensure the stability and reliability of the product. In addition to the research and development of products and technologies, it can also be directly applied to mass production, accelerating the process from R&D to productization.
