General description

Mobisense Systems camera modules are designed to answer the needs of robotics vision: monochrome or color, high sensitivity, global shutter, high dynamic range HDR, compact and low power (CMOS). They are also well suited for many embedded and portable computer vision tasks.

Modules with Aptina Imaging and Omnivision sensors are available. Higher resolution sensors (1.3 and 3.1 Mpixels), a stereo head and a camera expander to connect up to 4 cameras simultaneaously on MBS270 V2 Xscale® boards will be added soon.

All camera modules are connected to the processor board via a 30 pins FFC cable as long as 200mm. Thus, the camera modude can be placed independently of the processor board or mounted on a pan/tilt platform.

Our modules include a M12x0.5 (S-Mount) lens holder. They accept a wide range of lenses, from low cost models up to high performance lenses for machine vision. Monochrome sensors can be equipped with a lense holder in which a filter can be inserted: for applications such as structured light and spectral analysis.

Software support

All proposed camera modules are supported on our Xscale ® boards with Video For Linux V4L2 compatible drivers. The drivers are carefully optimized for highest frame rate via DMA to minimize CPU charge. Some drivers include additionnal sensor specific features that greatly enhance their performance.
