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.
3.0 TOPS for AI with INT8 quantization support
Quad-core ARM A53 @ 1.5GHz, running Yocto Linux, acting as a host computer
Imaging: ISP, max 6 cameras, 500 MP/s HDR, 3A
Run any AI model, even custom architectured/built ones - models need to be converted.
Cloud platform - Robothub - connectivity out-of-the-box
On-device SLAM / VIO support
Encoding: H.264, H.265, MJPEG - 4K/75FPS, Decoding: 4K/60FPS
Object tracking: 2D and 3D tracking with ObjectTracker node
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:
