Embedded 3D vision High-resolution 3D data directly from the camera

If large volumes or several object views are to be checked automatically by 3D cameras, e.g. on constantly running production lines in the automotive industry, high-resolution 3D result data must be generated and processed quickly. Stereo camera systems with large 5 MP sensors and variable baselines provide the ideal output data. However, interfaces and CPU power can quickly form the bottleneck in such high-performance 3D applications.
