The MultiSense S21 is a long range, high resolution, high accuracy, 3D sensor that delivers real-time vertical and horizontal field-of-view coverage along with color information for every range point. The S21 addresses one of the key challenges in automation and robotics: Reliable 3D sensing both indoors and outdoors at an affordable cost. The S21, like the S7, is capable of matching 11 million features per second, resulting in higher frame rates and more dense 3D range data. The S21’s GigE connectivity provides highly reliable, best-in-class performance. The long-range, high-resolution, and color 3D sensors enable low-cost robotics for a wide variety of applications, including mining, construction, agriculture, and off-highway systems.
The MultiSense S21’s Semi-Global Stereo Matching algorithm transforms left and right camera images into 3D depth maps and point clouds and deliver them at frame rates as high as 30 fps. The S21 comes with multiple focal length lens options which allow the customer to dial in performance for optimized fields of view. Carnegie Robotics’ state-of-the-art calibration process is the key that unlocks this transformation of pixel data into accurate range measurements while compensating for lens distortion, lens misalignment, and overall manufacturing tolerances.
The S21’s rugged design protects it from even the harshest of environments. Like the rest of the MultiSense line, Gorilla Glass by Corning windows provide protection from scratches and the effects of minor optical distortions. All MultiSense products are subjected to a series of rigorous tests including extreme vibration, hot/cold thermal cycling, and highly sensitive leak checks.
Hi-Res, Low Latency Stereo
The MultiSense S21 Semi-Global Stereo Matching algorithm is able to identify over 11 million feature matches every second via ultra high resolution imagery and with no more than one frame of latency.
Easy Data Options
The S21 delivers dense, full-frame range data at configurable frame rates via a 3D point cloud. These point clouds are processed and colorized on-board the S21, eliminating the need for additional equipment and adding to its ease of use. The ROS API streams point clouds, depth images, and RGB images in several common formats.
Carnegie Robotics’ ROS-based API enables the viewing of live 3D range data, the adjustments of camera and stereo parameters, calibration checking, log playback, and the changing of sensor IP addresses. Our open source C++ library and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces help to facilitate an easy integration of MultiSense S21 data into your existing systems.
