“Working with Mouser Electronics will allow global access for integrators, engineers, and roboticists to acquire and integrate our high-performance smart cameras into their new projects,” said Kendra Serbinski, Business Development Manager at Labforge. “Mouser’s leading distribution expertise and best-in-class service enables innovation across industries and geographies, and we are pleased to be a part of their efforts.”
Bottlenose cameras offer built-in capability that does not require any additional software licenses or subscription fees. All processing happens on the camera itself, and customers don’t have to pay any third-party data charges or cloud fees either. Stereo versions boast dual image sensors, while both monocular and stereo versions have hardware-synchronized, triple-axis gyroscopes, accelerometers, and magnetometers.
Each camera is equipped with a powerful 20.5TOPS 16nm chip with ten processors, four DSPs, and eight types of accelerators. This makes it possible for users to perform on-camera object detection and classification, compute depth, segmentation, and feature tracking. Engineers and integrators can use a simple microcontroller to read results via the serial port, as there are no minimum requirements on the client side. Advanced applications are also accommodated via popular frameworks like MVTec HALCON and ROS via the GigE Vision 2.1 API.
Bottlenose cameras offer an ideal solution for a variety of applications including service and delivery robots, manufacturing automation, AgTech robots, VRU protection, and food and beverage processing.
