With the O3R hardware platform, ifm presents an edge device to which up to six 3D cameras and numerous other sensors can be connected. The platform is ideal for neural networks and other AI applications. The camera connection is made via FDP-Link or GigE. A Linux system equipped with an Nvidia Video Processing Unit forms the hardware basis on which even demanding AI applications can be realized. With ROS2 drivers, the system can also be integrated into robotics applications. Since image processing moves to the edge device in the new O3R concept, hardly any data processing is required in the camera, and it is correspondingly inexpensive. The camera heads contain 3D sensors or a combination of 3D and 2D sensors.
