Orbbec, dedicated to 3D vision systems, has announced the launch of the Gemini 2 XL at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Ideal as the primary visual system for a variety of robots and numerous AI-based video analytics and interaction systems, the Gemini 2 XL is a long-range, 3D camera that delivers accurate and reliable data in various lighting conditions from pitch black to outdoors.
The newly released camera unit is easy to set up and operate with the Orbbec SDK and features:
Superior RGB-D Quality: Providing data suitable for a wide range of demanding AI-driven recognition and tracking applications that require detection of small objects and while excelling in high-reflectivity environments. The deep learning algorithms can generate a complete phase map around small objects and fixtures by overcoming challenges faced by traditional algorithms due to shadow, speckle pattern size, illumination condition, etc.
Minimal Environmental Light Impact: Offers exceptional performance in various lighting conditions, including direct sunlight and outdoor environments. Conventional algorithms struggle to calculate depth/phase in environmental conditions with highly reflective surfaces, direct sunlight, low visibility, sharp shape-cased shadows, small texture-caused shadow, etc. to calculate the depth/phase which results in a spotted image with missing depth areas. Orbbec’s AI algorithms create a solid complete phase map output even under these challenging conditions.
No Need for Costly Vision Processors: While similar cameras in the market are either very expensive or require costly external computing power, the high-performance Gemini 2 XL provides engineers with a cost-efficient, high-accuracy option.
“We are excited to demonstrate the superior capabilities of Gemini 2 XL at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show,” said David Chen, Co-Founder and Head of Products at Orbbec. “As Orbbec’s learning library continues to expand, the camera’s capabilities will continue to improve, broadening their applicability in robotics and AI-based vision solutions.”
Smarter automation needs intelligent robots with reliable, yet affordable depth perception. Orbbec is dedicated to 3D vision and customers interested in custom solutions to meet their specific application needs can leverage Orbbec’s expertise in R&D, in-house manufacturing and supply chain.
The Gemini 2 XL, when paired directly with the powerful NVIDIA Jetson Orin system-on-modules allows for additional image processing resulting in further improvement in the depth frame rate, accuracy, and scene versatility. This optimized deeplearning pipeline and camera calibration service will be offered only as part of Orbbec’s ODM package.
