StereoPi-powered drones and... the StereoPi v2!

by Eugene Pomazov

StereoPi-based AI-accelerated drones

The MorphEyes project was done at the University of Maryland College Park. It has a few interesting features:

  • The baseline (stereo base) is dynamically adjusted on the go, according to the distance to closest obstacles and other parameters.

  • The team is planning to use Intel Movidus for advanced AI techniques.

In the related Arxiv.org (PDF) the team showcases three different applications of this system for quadrotor navigation:

  • flying through a forest
  • flying through an unknown shaped/location static/dynamic gap
  • accurate 3D pose detection of an independently moving object

They show that their variable baseline system is accurate and robust in all three scenarios.

StereoPi V2 is about to launch!

Keep an eye on the StereoPi V2 page here on CrowdSupply in the next few weeks, as we are quite close to launching! You can, of course, sign up to receive updates to get the latest news.

StereoPi AnyCase Kit

With AnyCase Kit you can get your setup in a 10 minutes, before you go to your 3D printer or laser cut machine! You can assemble any case with 25, 65, 120 or 200 mm stereobase, or for 360 degree video with just a screwdriver! And you have 12 more camera ribbons now, do not afraid to bend you cables in your bold experiments!


$79

StereoPi Slim Edition

Perfect for DIY ninjas and those wanting to embed StereoPi in a tight space. This board is the same as the standard edition, but without all the bulky connectors - the Ethernet RJ45 jack, GPIO header, and dual USB Type-A connector have not been populated. To use this board, you will need your own Raspberry Pi Compute Module, cameras, and camera ribbon cables. Two short power cables already included.


$99

StereoPi Standard Edition

The world of stereoscopic video awaits! This board is the ultimate interface between two cameras and a Raspberry Pi Compute Module. It comes with all the bells and whistles, including Ethernet, dual USB ports, GPIO header, microSD slot, HDMI output, and more. To use this board, you will need your own Raspberry Pi Compute Module, cameras, and camera ribbon cables. Two short power cables already included.


$139

StereoPi Starter Kit

This kit has everything you need to get started right away. The kit includes one StereoPi Standard Edition board, two V1 cameras (w/ ~20 cm ribbon cables), one Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 + Lite, and everything in the StereoPi Accessories Kit (two short ribbon cables, one USB power cable, two power cables, one V1/V2 dual-camera mounting plate, and one wide-angle dual-camera mounting plate). We've also included a microSD card pre-imaged with Raspbian and all the stereoscopic video and image demos you see on this project page.


$214

StereoPi Deluxe Kit

This kit includes everything in the StereoPi Starter Kit and adds two wide-angle (160°) cameras (w/ ~20 cm ribbon cables). With this kit, you'll be able to run all of the demos shown on this project page and start experimenting on your own. You will reign supreme over your stereoscopic domain.

We are a small team of geeks who have been making remote-controlled things with livestreaming video since 2010. We've done everything from boats and planes, to robots, copters, and VR helmets. If we can't find the right tools for our projects, we build them ourselves.
