Embedded x86 kit simplifies smart vision integration for transport

The first embedded x86-based MIPI-CSI 2 kit from congatec is designed to ease the integration of embedded vision technology into smart transportation checkpoints, access control and ticketing systems. The industrial-grade platform is application-ready for the evaluation and deployment in harsh outdoor and in-vehicle environments. According to congatec, 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, user-centric content delivery and video surveillance.

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 customised to support new applications and features. It is 100 per cent compliant with the latest MIPI-CSI standard and optimised 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.

The Intel Atom processor based conga-PA5 Pico-ITX single board computer combines embedded x86 technology with MIPIU-CSI 2, the most widely used camera interface for mobile phones, says congatec. Benefits are claimed to include performance, power and efficiency optimisation for smart transportation checkpoints, access controls and ticketing systems. It also simplifies evaluation for applications demanding industrial-grade quality and long-term availability, adds the company.
