Embedded vision is rapidly growing in emerging high-volume applications such as automotive systems, gaming systems, surveillance and augmented reality. The basic vision functionalities embedded in these applications are object detection, gesture recognition and mapping functions. UP, the smallest-sized x86 embedded board, finds a perfect match with Basler dart camera to provide solutions in all these applications. To shorten your development time, UP presents an Embedded Vision Starter kit together with Basler, which includes all the software and hardware you need.

The package comes inclusive of one UP board with 2GB memory/32GB eMMC, Basler 5M pixel color dart camera, S-mount lens, USB3.0 OTG cable and a power supply. You can follow a quick start guide to download a pre-configured Linux image at UP Community, or get the pylon software at the Basler website if you would like to build your own image in Windows or another Linux version. All of this will cost you only $315 at UP Shop.

UP board is the size of a credit card and Basler dart camera is just about the size of one coin, however, both of them demonstrate the best performance in their range of similar products. Further more, UP and Basler is coming from the embedded market where products are built for industrial use. Once the proof of concept is completed, the same development kit can be deployed into mass production without any extra efforts. Starting an embedded vision project was never so easy!
