mvBlueNAOS - PCI Express camera module series

By using the platform-independent PCI Express interface, the mvBlueNAOS2 offers the maximum possible transfer rates. Image data can be directly transferred to the memory (DMA - direct memory access) with almost zero latency and without any overhead or diversions via additional interfaces. Complex applications, which approach the limits of what is technically feasible, can be implemented while the overall system costs remain low. Other highlights include:

  • Platform independence
    thanks to direct data transfer via a PCI Express interface

  • Low overall operating costs
    thanks to easy integration and on-board image pre-processing

  • Shortening of your time to market
    thanks to high flexibility and ease of connection

  • High investment security
    thanks to a scalable interface and a standardized GenICam interface

  • Minimum latency and high efficiency
    thanks to real-time control and reduced communication overhead

Robot Operating System (ROS)

The "Robot Operating System" is a cross-platform, service-oriented middleware for connecting and controlling devices for "robotic" purposes. The framework has been available since 2007 and is normally only called "ROS".

If you are planning to use our GenICam cameras in a ROS application, we recommend two packages which are administered by the company roboception GmbH.
