Capture the World with Incredible Detail

With a resolution of up to 12 million pixels, HemiStereo NX enables a new era of ultra-high-resolution depth sensing. Discover how the precise 3D measurement captures the world with incredible detail.

New Opportunities for Your Application

Automated Guided Vehicles

Next-generation Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are going to be autonomous. Compared to their fixed-route counterparts, these mobile robots can navigate through production environments without human intervention.

Manned-Vehicle Collision Awareness

Statistics show a large number of accidents in industrial environments involving floor conveyors and industrial trucks. In many cases people are hurt or equipment is damaged. Due to its unrivaled field-of-view HemiStereo enables a 180° rear-view collision awareness with a single camera unit.

Storage Space Monitoring

Real-time monitoring of inventory can be crucial to implement Lean production methods. Plus, knowledge about storage space fill-level improves efficiency of autonomous mobile robot (AMR) fleets by avoiding unnecessary transport actions.

Human-Robot-Collaboration

In modern Smart Industry environments robots and humans must collaborate closer than ever. With accurate person posture detection and gesture recognition robots can react to human behavior more accurately and deliberately.

Key Features

Edge AI

Edge AI

With powerful integrated AI computing your application runs autonomously at the edge – no external computing, no cloud required. HemiStereo® NX supports both NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™ and Jetson Xavier NX™ Developer Kits. You can choose the one that fits your needs.

ultra-high resolution

Ultra-High Resolution

Two Sony IMX477 12.48 mega-pixel CMOS sensors create a highly detailed image of the scene. HemiStereo® Deep Neural Network based stereo matching allows calculation of depth maps with up to 12 mega-pixel resolution in real-time.

design

Robust and Fanless Design

HemiStereo® NX features a robust metal body machined from a solid piece of aluminum together with basic ingress protection. Heat is dissipated by an optimized fin design eliminating any active fans and moving parts.

world's widest field-of-view

World’s Widest Field-of-View

Conventional stereo cameras are limited to a field-of-view of up to 120°, due to limitations of perspective projection. Our unique HemiStereo® technology enables stereo vision using non-rectilinear fish-eye lenses. This allows depth-sensing for opening angles of 180° and beyond.

made for developers

Made for Developers

HemiStereo® NX makes the development of AI-powered 3D vision applications in industrial environments easier than ever. With full root access to the Linux4Tegra OS, flexible IO and an easy-to-use Software Development Kit there are no limits to your application.

Demo Showcase

Monitoring in Cabin
Robust SLAM
Mobile Robots and AGVs rely on robust navigation. With HemiStereo simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) techniques can use ultra-wide-angle images and precise depth measurements.
Image is not available
Ultra-Wide Depth Sensing
HemiStereo NX allows to capture image and depth (RGB-D) data with up to 180° field-of-view and 12 megapixel in resolution - pushing the limits of stereo vision. This demo gives a quick view of RGB and depth images.
Image is not available
Advanced Obstacle Detection
Compared to LiDAR scanners, HemiStereo NX provides a large field-of-view in both horizontal and vertical directions. This improves the detection of hard-to-detect objects such as forklifts.
HemiStereo NX Sample Point Cloud Preview
Real-Time Point Cloud (Interactive Demo)
With the integrated NVIDIA Jetson, HemiStereo NX can process up to 12 million depth points per second, allowing to create precise point clouds in real-time. Explore sample data with this interactive 3D viewer.
