Nerian Unveils SceneScan Real-time 3D Depth Sensor

SceneScan is Nerian (Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Germany) latest innovation for real-time 3D depth sensing through stereoscopic vision. Unlike conventional depth cameras, stereo vision is a passive technology, which also works robustly in bright daylight. With the help of a powerful FPGA, SceneScan analyzes the image data from two cameras, and computes a depth map or a 3D point cloud at very high speeds. The system can process images at up to 100 fps and image resolutions up to 3 megapixels. Video demo here under.

Like No Other 3D Sensor

SceneScan is Nerian's latest innovation for real-time 3D depth sensing through stereo vision. Unlike conventional depth cameras, stereo vision is a passive technology, which also works robustly in bright daylight. With the help of a powerful FPGA, SceneScan analyzes the image data from two cameras, and computes a depth map or a 3D point cloud at very high speeds. The system can process images at up to 100 fps and image resolutions up to 3 megapixels.

How It works

SceneScan connects to the Karmin stereo camera, or to two conventional USB3Vision industrial cameras. The camera images are processed in real-time using a powerful FPGA and our state-of-the-art stereo matching algorithm. The processing result is a sub-pixel accurate disparity map (an inverse depth map), which is streamed through gigabit ethernet to a connected computer or embedded system. Using our open-source and cross-platform API, this disparity map can be converted into a dense 3D point cloud. Through a built-in auto-recalibration, long-term operability of the system is ensured, even if the cameras encounter mechanical stresses.
