The EX8036 Stereo Camera from eYs3D is a high-end imager controller and patterned IR illuminator with a global shutter capable of both color and depth-map video modes. Thanks to its dual cameras, this Stereo Camera is ideally used in applications involving VR/AR, people and thing counting, and obstacle avoidance. The best part about this module is the fact that it has been designed to be as straight forward and easy to use as possible for a stereo camera. Simply plug in the included USB 3.0 cable download the required files and start seeing things through the eyes of your new camera!
Since the data size of continual captured images can be too large to be managed by most CPUs, the EX8036 is equipped with the eSP870U camera controller making it ideal for running intensive depth-map computing algorithms on the controller itself and reserving critical CPU resources for other uses! The IR pattern illuminator features a wavelength of 850nm while the camera itself offers a variable video output that can be referenced on page nine in the datasheet found in the Documents tab above. Additionally, the global shutter on this camera allows you to do feature extraction while in motion, or on moving objects. So while it can also do depth-mapping, the EX8036 provides you with a much more advanced machine vision module.
The download files for this unit (found on a page inside the physical box) include a basic viewer, a number of Dynamic Link Libraries, along with some XML files used for face recognition, and a small executable called eDepthPresence. This final download shows the camera’s input, plus files for making some small adjustments and custom applications which is eYs3D’s goal, to build your own designs.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Competent - The toolchain for programming is a bit more complex and will examples may not be explicitly provided for you. You will be required to have a fundamental knowledge of programming and be required to provide your own code. You may need to modify existing libraries or code to work with your specific hardware. Sensor and hardware interfaces will be SPI or I2C.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
