ZED 2 Camera

The ZED 2 camera made by Stereolabs provides the Computer Science subteam with cutting-edge technology including neural depth sensing, 3D mapping and object detection, a built-in IMU, and more. When integrated with the Computer Vision group’s custom object detection model, the ZED’s depth sensing abilities will provide information on where buoys and other competition obstacles are located relative to the boat. The ZED’s positional tracking will also give information about where the boat is located and oriented in a global frame. As the eyes and part of the brain of the boat, the ZED is crucial for our team’s autonomous navigation and localization.
