Hello everyone, I am relatively new to (3D) computer vision and intend to create a 3d stereo vision system similar to the one mentioned in the following article:
"FPGA-Based System Combines Two Video Streams To Provide 3d Video". URL:http://www.analog.com/library/analogdialogue/archives/47-12/stereo_video.html
My aim is to create a 3d map of a terrain traversed by a robot. I also wish to perform operations on the 3d map to help with robot navigation (path optimization).
I do believe that the ADSP BF-609 EZ-Board will be a good option for such processing.
My queries are:
1. With what interface will I connect the camera module to the extension EI3 board. (What communication protocol will the camera module follow?)
2. Can I connect more than one camera? Will the BF-609 evaluation board support multiple EI3 camera extension boards (for stereovision)?
3. Which additional software should I use for 3d rendering and visualization?
4. Are there any other better options for low cost 3d imaging that you would suggest?
