Robotics Vision Core 3

Robotics Vision Core 3 (RVC3 in short) is the third generation of our RVC. OAK Series 3 devices are built on top of the RVC3.

RVC3 encapsulates three main components:

  • DepthAI features that are fine-tuned for the particular SoC

  • A performant SoC and all its support circuitry (HS PCB layout, power delivery network, efficient heat dissipation, etc.)

  • Out-of-the-box connectivity with Robothub, our cloud platform, which allows for an end-to-end integration of the perception stack.

RVC3 Performance

RVC3 HDR support

RVC3 supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode, which allows to capture images with a higher dynamic range than the standard mode. Supported camera sensors:

  • IMX412 driver (that we reuse for IMX577/IMX477 as well), requires 12MP resolution and 4 MIPI lanes

  • IMX327 driver (that we reuse for IMX462), requires 1080P and 4 MIPI lanes

To enable HDR, you can specify:

colorCam1.initialControl.setMisc("camera-mode", "HDR-2DOL")
# or, for 3DOL:
colorCam2.initialControl.setMisc("camera-mode", "HDR-3DOL")
# Note that 3DOL is only suited for static scenes

DOL HDR stands for digital-overlap HDR. Comparison between the modes can be seen below:


Power consumption

The RVC3 itself has a maximum power consumption of about 8W, which is mainly consumed by the SoC, Movidius Keem Bay, that is integrated inside the RVC3.
