Start selling stereo camera system for distance measurement

This time, ZMP Inc. (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo: CEO: Taniguchi Hisashi, ZMP hereafter) is the "ZMP RoboVision 2 CarTrack package" stereo camera system for distance measurement Sales began.

  本製品は、ステレオカメラと画像認識ソフトウェアで構成され、前走車を検出し距離を計測するシステムとなっております。路面の傾きの影響を抑え前走車の検出と追跡をする新アルゴリズム(VTS®:Virtual Tilt Stereo ※特許申請済み)を搭載しております。ADAS・自動運転技術制御におけるカメラを用いた車間距離の計測には前走車の検出と追跡するアルゴリズムの開発が必要ですが、本システムでは両者を兼ね備えたソフトウェアが付属されております。

ADAS · In the development of autonomous driving technology and the development of robot technology, the importance of environmental recognition with cameras is increasing more and more, especially the use of stereo cameras that can calculate the distances with only the camera is drawing attention. We sell RoboVision 2 stereo camera using Sony made ultra-sensitive CMOS sensor for research and development from 2015 and we begin selling 'object detection package' which can detect objects in 2016. "CarTrack package" which starts selling this time adopts a new image processing method and is a system specialized for measuring the distance between cars. The price is 1.7 million yen (excluding tax) and we will start receiving orders from today and ship the end of October 2017.

Product introduction URL: RoboVision 2 CarTrack package


■ A new algorithm "VTS® (Virtual Tilt Stereo)" is installed to improve road surface detection accuracy.
■ Accuracy of road surface estimated height is improved by converting acquired image to overhead view image and calculating distance. Improvement of separation performance between road surface and object.
■ Output the object tracking result as CAN data.
■ Compact processing PC included. Available without frequent setup work.
