As an NVIDIA Preferred Partner, Basler has now extended its support for the full line-up of Jetson products. Image processing for today’s AI at the edge applications in robotics, logistics, smart retail, smart factories, and smart cities requires high computing power.
The enormous compute and energy efficiency advantages of the NVIDIA Jetson platform along with Basler’s vision know-how offer customers an excellent combination for use in automatic optical inspection, intelligent video analytics and more.
The Embedded Vision Development Kit, which includes the Jetson Nano™ Developer Kit, comes with a Basler dart BCON for MIPI camera with 13 MP, S-mount lens, an adapter board specifically developed for the Jetson Nano module, and accessories. Basler has also integrated new camera driver and sample reference applications leveraging the powerful capabilities of the NVIDIA Jetson platform, giving developers a ready-to-use development package for edge AI use cases.
The two Add-on Camera Kits provide the appropriate vision extension for developers already working with a Jetson Nano processor board. 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. Here, the required driver packages and the Basler pylon SDK are available for download from the Basler website.
“Partnering with an edge computing leader like NVIDIA complements Basler’s portfolio of cost-optimised camera modules,” said Gerrit Fischer, head of marketing Module Business at Basler. “With our embedded vision solutions for the full NVIDIA Jetson lineup, we provide the developer community with proven and reliable vision technology for every need. This offers great innovation potential for new vision-based applications.”
“With the Basler vision kits for the Jetson Nano, developers get an integrated, easy to use solution for vision-based embedded applications in robotics, manufacturing and industrial IoT,” said Murali Gopalakrishna, head of product management for autonomous machines at NVIDIA. “Basler’s ongoing support for the NVIDIA Jetson platform brings a wealth of experience in industrial cameras into our partner ecosystem.”
