Item Description:

This Arducam quadrascopic camera bundle incorporates four 1MP OV9281 global shutter cameras, and the cutting-edge MIPI 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 camera port on prevailing single-board computers like Raspberry Pi. Also, as the Camarray HAT releases, Arducam starts to support a variable baseline for multi-camera applications with some modified Arducam camera modules, such as those OV9281 ones included in this bundle. You can kick off your prototyping for multi-camera applications and then decide the optimal baseline. Contact us for customized requests if needed.

 

Features:

  • 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.
  • 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 quadrascopic vision.
 

Applications:

  • Head, and eye-tracking
  • Gesture detection
  • Motion detection
  • 3D reconstruction
  • Depth-related vision applications

Special notes:

  • Raspberry Pi board is not included in the package.
  • This bundle kit is not recommended for Raspberry Pi Zero.
  • The OV9281 cameras in this kit are the unique version and cannot be connected to Raspberry Pi directly.
  • The I2C signal and clock of each camera are fully synchronized. It is unavailable to capture the same frame of images at different exposure times for each camera.
  • This kit is released for official Raspberry Pi/Jetson Nano/Xavier NX boards by default, and it does not support other third-party boards.

⚠️KERNEL CAMERA DRIVER USED:

This camera relies on kernel drivers to work – one kernel version, one camera driver. Up or downgrading your OS leads to a kernel bump, and you may need to re-install a matching driver.

Important Note on the Arducam Camarray HAT:

The Camarray HAT is not sold alone for the following reasons:

  1. Most of the cameras on the market are not designed for synched stereo uses. We’ve modified our camera modules specifically for the Camarry HAT. Your own V1, V2 or HQ camera modules won’t directly work with it.
  2. The Camarray HAT requires different firmware for different Image sensors that are not natively working with your embedded systems. Your own OV9281 and OV7251 camera modules won’t directly work with it, and they are not easily interchangeable.
