3DV-E system

This product has been discontinued.

VisLab 3DV-E is a low-cost and low-power dense stereo reconstruction system, running at 25 fps at VGA resolution.The processing is based on an improved version of the state-of-the art SGM algorithm to produce a dense disparity image.

The FPGA technology and the dual-core ARM CPU run 3D point cloud generation algorithms that generally require a PC-based platform.

Thanks to its extremely small size (187x37x50 mm), weight (565 g), and power consumption (5.5 W), VisLab’s 3DV-E system has been installed on a number of platforms, which were even unthinkable before its availability: drones, small size moving vehicles, and industrial machineries, besides automotive, mining, agricultural, and construction equipments.
In the field of mobile robotics 3DV-E is used as a navigation sensor, since it provides dense tridimensional perception of volumes in the surrounding space.

3DV-E is applied on board of AGVs (Automatic Guided Vehicles) largely used in industrial contexts of a substantial size. The 3D reconstruction provided by the device allows not only to implement security features but also self-localization and centering maneuvers that require high precision such as picking and docking.
