congatec introduces its first embedded x86-based MIPI-CSI 2 Kit that eases the integration of embedded vision technology into smart transportation checkpoints, access control and ticketing systems. The instantly deployable, industrial-grade platform is application-ready for the evaluation and deployment in harsh outdoor and in-vehicle environments. Engineers benefit from simplified development and accelerated time to market. Typical use cases range from video-based remote assistance, vision-based ticketing and gesture-based control to user and vehicle authentication, biometrics-based driver and passenger analytics, and user-centric content delivery as well as smart video surveillance and vandalism protection.
The congatec MIPI-CSI 2 Smart Camera Kit is pre-configured and validated with all required drivers, includes all the building blocks of a smart camera solution, and can be easily customized to support new applications and features. It is 100% compliant with the latest MIPI-CSI standard and optimized to run the MIPI-CSI 2 camera from Leopard Imaging based on ON Semiconductor’s AR0237 HD sensor together with the rugged conga-PA5 Pico-ITX single board computer based on Intel Atom E3900 processors for the extended temperature ranges. It comes with all required configurations and patches, and is ready to run code on the basis of the Linux Yocto kernel.
