This Arducam quadrascopic camera bundle incorporates four 1MP OV9281 global shutter cameras, and the cutting-edge MIPI stereo camera breakthrough from Arducam – The Arducam Camarray HAT. As the upgraded version of Arducam Synched Stereo Camera HAT, the Camarray further pushes the multi-camera limits and doubles the interfacing capabilities to allow 4 synchronized MIPI camera modules to be interfaced to a single MIPI CSI-2 slot on prevailing single-board computers like Raspberry Pi, Jetson Nano, and Jetson Xavier NX. Also, as the Camarray HAT releases, Arducam starts to support a variable baseline for stereo camera applications with some modified Arducam camera modules, such as those OV9281 ones included in this bundle. Since no shared camera board or clock-sharing soldering is required for the image sensors, you can kick off your prototyping for stereo camera applications and then decide the optimal baseline. This camera can only get four images. Arducam also accepts subsequent customizations for your stereo camera applications.
Supports Multiple Platforms: This bundle runs four synchronous OV9281 cameras through a single connection with MIPI CSI-2 port, compatible with Raspberry Pi and Jetson Nano/Xavier NX, also can be extended to other platforms that have MIPI CSI-2 interface and standard Video4Linux2(V4L2) driver.
Complete Synchronization: The frames of four cameras of this bundle are synchronized at the hardware level, extra synchronization scheme by time stamping or so does not need to be considered.
Mono Global Shutter: Shoot high-speed moving objects in crisp sharp images. Avoid the rolling artifacts to get a much more accurate complete picture than the rolling shutter Pi cameras. Frame Rate: 45fps@1280*4 × 800 on Jetson; 30fps@1280*4 × 800 on Rpi.
Variable Baseline Extension: Compared to the fixed stereo camera module, this stereo camera bundle has higher flexibility. The separated cameras can be used with a variable baseline device and controlled through the computer control system to achieve rapid and dynamic interactive adjustment of the moving parts for multi-degree-of-freedom stereo binocular vision.
Support Changing Frame Rate: You can change the frame rate from 5fps to 46fps. If the set frame rate exceeds the maximum value, it will work according to the maximum value. The same goes for the minimum value.
