Learn in 15 Minutes: ToF Design Tips to Boost 3D Performance & Cut Integration Time and Cost

For demanding real-time object detection, Time-of-Flight (ToF) cameras using Sony’s new IMX556 DepthSense sensor have boosted speed, precision, and accuracy while simplifying integration time and cost. To achieve the full potential of Time-of-Flight technology, a few key factors should be considered, such as the target object properties, the geometry of the application scene, illumination requirements and working distance. In this 15 min presentation, we’re providing practical design tips on how to integrate a ToF camera efficiently and optimize 3D-depth performance. View Presentation

Atlas camera with no lens mount

31.4 MP Atlas with no Lens Mount

The 31.4 MP Atlas model over 5 GBASE-T PoE is now shipping without a lens mount front. This enables customers to mount their own custom optics or filter providing closer access to the sensor package and offering more flexibility in their system design. The image sensor is actively aligned just like all the other Atlas models. Learn more.

Phoenix Camera with Extended Head

To allow more flexibility in applications with tight space constraints or unique orientations, we’ve developed an extended head connection for the Phoenix 24 x 24 mm camera line. These Phoenix models featuring the remote head connection range from 0.4 MP to 12.2 MP resolution. Further customization is possible of the shape and length of the Flex cable. Learn more.

Did You Know?

Did you know what the term “Scheimpflug” stands for?

Scheimpflug principle

The Scheimpflug principle, named after Theodor Scheimpflug (1865–1911, Austria), is the geometric rule that describes the orientation of a plane of focus, the lens plane, and the image plane of an optical system when the lens plane is not parallel to the image plane. This principle allows users maximum focus control over objects that are not parallel to the camera. LUCID's Phoenix flexible camera module with “no lens mount” or Atlas 31.4 MP “no lens mount” camera gives users direct access to the sensor plane, allowing them to apply the Scheimpflug principle with more ease.
