NVIDIA Jetson Partner Stories: Stereolabs

In the drone industry, the weight and size of the main board is critical. With the ZED stereo camera by Stereolabs, developers can capture the world in 3D and map 3D models of indoor and outdoor scenes up to 20 meters. The small form factor of the Jetson TX1 enables Stereolabs to bring advanced computer vision capabilities to smaller and smaller systems. See what is possible when these two technologies come together in drones to power the latest virtual reality applications.
