Embedded Vision Solutions for the Entire NVIDIA Jetson Portfolio
Image processing in AI applications requires high computing power. Basler's vision know-how and the enormous performance and energy efficiency of NVIDIA® Jetson™ SoMs (System on Module) therefore offer an excellent combination for use in AI applications extended by vision components: Possible applications include automatic optical inspection, AI-based robotics, and intelligent video analysis in the retail, smart building, and smart city sectors.
While the Jetson Nano is suitable for high-volume AI systems due to its attractive price/performance ratio, the Jetson AGX Xavier series offers up to 32 TOPS AI performance - and is thus specialized for applications that require highly complex AI calculations of images or video sequences.
The development kit includes the Jetson Nano Developer Board, a Basler dart BCON for MIPI camera with 13 MP and S-mount lens, an adapter board, and accessories. The adapter board and integrated camera driver components, both developed by Basler, combined with a pre-installed system image make the kit a ready-to-use starter package for developing AI solutions.
The two add-on camera kits provide the right vision extension for developers who already work with the Jetson nano processing boards. The Add-on Camera Kits contain either a 5 MP or a 13 MP Basler dart BCON for MIPI camera with S-mount lens, an adapter board, and accessories. The required driver packages and the Basler pylon SDK are available for download here . Another add-on camera kit for the recently released NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX is already in development; additional kits for Jetson TX1, TX2, and Jetson AGX Xavier will follow. See for yourself!
