Stereo Camera

Two cameras used in parallel, typically a few inches apart to mimic human vision.

Just as in humans, stereo cameras can be used to detect distance, size and speed of objects by sending two slightly different data streams to process.

Algorithms detect differences between the data streams and are able to identify, separate and label objects.

Since cameras are vulnerable to failures in lower visibility weather conditions, the second camera may have enhanced abilities, such as improved infrared, thermal or time-of-flight sensitivity.
