Leopard Imaging ToF Cameras
Time-of-Flight Technology Overview
A ToF camera measures how long it takes for light to bounce off an object. Using this principle, the camera calculates the distance to all objects in a scene. This point cloud data is used to compute and create a three-dimensional (3D) map of the object space. Thus, ToF cameras are also referred to as “depth cameras.” Unlike stereo 3D methods, no image contrast is necessary, and ToF systems exhibit excellent mechanical robustness and reduction of computing resources.
An Elite Partner in the NVIDIA Partner Network, Leopard Imaging develops ToF cameras based on a wide variety of imaging solutions compatible with the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier platform. This includes hardware and software development, image tuning, and one-stop shop customization services for developers and customers. Leopard Imaging’s ToF cameras, developed in collaboration with NVIDIA, are also available on Jetson AGX Orin.
Leopard Imaging has a wide range of imaging solutions and a strong track record of developing 3D cameras. With the NVIDIA Jetson platform, Leopard Imaging ToF cameras empower automotive applications, robotics, IoT, drones, and other edge AI related applications. To further enhance the ToF camera image quality, Leopard Imaging uses Active Alignment (AA) technology through its manufacturing and integration/calibration process
Leopard Imaging and Microsoft Collaborate to Develop Time-of-Flight (ToF) Cameras
Leopard Imaging and Microsoft’s Azure Depth Platform program are working together to develop ToF Cameras, aimed at democratizing cloud-connected 3D vision. In this collaboration, Leopard Imaging is developing 3D sensing cameras, which can securely connect with Azure Intelligent Edge and Intelligent Cloud platforms for a broad set of technologies and industry solutions.
Leopard Imaging will leverage Microsoft’s ToF technology with solutions in retail, physical security, healthcare, drones, IoT, robotics and automotive industries -reinventing camera-imaging experiences for customers around the world.
