ZED stereo camera simulates human visual depth perception

Despite advances in visual technology that let machines emulate a vast degree of human brain function, one thing that mechanical instruments have yet to master is depth perception. Even with advanced technology, computers cannot emulate the calculations of the human visual cortex. San Francisco-based Stereolabs aims to rectify that with the new ZED Stereo Camera and software kit, giving drones, robots and other machines skills like indoor/outdoor collision avoidance, autonomous navigation and 3D mapping capabilities. This advanced stereoscopic vision equipment is now available to the mass market. The ZED camera is based on CUDA, a programming model from top-tier Nvidia graphics cards. They allow…
