App Note: Add RGB Color to Helios 3D Point Cloud

Introduction This document will discuss how to display a color point cloud by overlaying the Helios ToF camera point cloud data onto RGB data from a Triton color camera. The foundation of the app note is based on OpenCV's "Camera Calibration and 3D Reconstruction" documentation. The following is a brief summary of our steps: Place [...]

Introduction Many high precision applications using machine vision cameras require the camera to capture a frame at a precision instant (ie. When the target object moves into camera’s field of view) or multiple cameras to capture frames synchronously. This application note outlines the method available to trigger the camera to capture a single frame, a [...]

Introduction This document will discuss using Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C) communication with LUCID cameras. Equipment Used PHX032S, Phoenix 3.2MP Sony IMX265, firmware 1.29.0.0 GPIO-8P20, 8-pin 20cm JST cable SEN-13762, SparkFun IMU Breakout - MPU-9250 Board (DigiKey: 1568-1420-ND) Arena SDK for Windows v1.0.9.1 or newer Function Summary In LUCID’s I2C implementation, the non-opto isolated pins (Line 2 [...]

Introduction In machine vision applications, cameras often need to be synchronized with other cameras or devices such as lighting and controllers to capture images precisely. What is the Precision Time Protocol (PTP)? Precision Time Protocol (PTP or IEEE1588) is an IEEE standard that has since been integrated into GigE Vision 2.0. It is a method [...]
