OAK features

All OAK cameras have a number of features that can be run on the device itself:


Spatial Data

OAK-D family of devices has on-board stereo depth camera pair. Stereo depth perception fused with AI capabilities allow devices to perform Spatial AI tasks, like providing 3D spatial coordinates (XYZ) of detected objects and features, or providing class for each depth point.

OAK-FFC family can also perceive depth if ToF sensor or stereo camera pair are attached to the FFC board.

PoE connectivity, IP67 rating

OAK PoE models use Power-over-Ethernet for power delivery and (2-way) communication. All OAK PoE models also have an IP67 rated enclosure (dustproof and waterproof). For more information you can refer to Getting started with OAK PoE devices guide.

Active Stereo perception and Night Vision

Pro version of OAK camera has on-board IR laser dot projector for active stereo and IR illumination LED for night vision.

Standalone mode support

OAK IoT and OAK PoE models have on-board flash memory, so they can run in standalone mode, which means they don’t need to be connected to a host computer to operate.

OAK CM models have on-board Raspberry Pi Compute Module, which is technically the host computer of the OAK SoM, but the device still runs on its own.


OAK IoT models have on-board ESP32 coprocessor, which provides IoT WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity to the device. For more information you can refer to Getting started with OAK IoT devices guide.

OAK CM models have on-board Raspberry Pi Compute Module, either CM3 or CM4.

Camera options

OAK Series 2 devices also come with Wide FOV option, which has 150° HFOV lenses.

OAK-FFC family supports a number of different camera modules, more information here.
