Basler took home the first prize for its Dart Bcon for MIPI development kit presented at embedded world this week in Nuremberg, Germany.

The company’s embedded vision kit won in the embedded vision category. The kit features a camera module that utilizes the image signal processor of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon system on chip (SoC) under Linux and has a 5 megapixel, 60fps Dart camera module with Bcon for MIPI interface and a processing board.

The kit is designed to diminish the overall processor load of the system, releasing more computing power for the application.

Congatec, NXP and Irida Labs helped develop the system in conjunction with Basler. The system employs an NXP i.MX 8QuadMax SoC affixed to a Conga-SMX8 Smarc 2.0 computer-on-module from Congatec, a Smarc 2.0 carried board, and Basler’s Dart Bcon for MIPI 13-megapixel camera module. Irida Labs provided instructions for the neural network to detect the items in the shopping cart.
