I want to have multiple (2-4) cameras synced for 3D position estimation detecting Fiducial markers.
The camera system will be estimating the tool pose of a 6DOF robot, likely mounted to the end of arm.
This is desired while the arm is moving and preferably have time-stamping option to sync with an IMU.
I was looking at using the USB3.0 Shield Plus to capture images from 2 OV2311 or OV9281 sensors.
The definition of the USB3.0+ says that the “two cameras cannot be used at the same time” but also that they can be used to achieve “dual-lane synthesis”/“Double column resolution”, which is a bit confusing to me.
Am I right to understand that 2 MIPI cameras can be used (synced) simultaneously but not DVP?
I am on a tight budget, so multiple USB3.0+ shields can’t be purchased easily. But if I wanted 4 cameras or more, what’s my options?
Can I for example use the one 3.0+ shield for timestamping, and sync an external trigger with multiple UVC cameras?
I read that a stereo camera/multicam hat could be connected to the USB3+ shield? Is there an option for multiple different direction cameras, like the multicam hat, without a Raspberry Pi?
