Bluetechnix Argos®2D - A100 Camera Platform based on i.MX53 offers state of the art processor technology combined with outstanding image processing software in a modular, intelligent embedded camera system integrated into a smart housing with high quality optics. This platform grows with the market demands due to its System-on-Module (SOM) based hardware design. The housing stays the same while the processing hardware can be exchanged. The first hardware release is based on Bluetechnix' latest i.MX53 SOM called CM-i.MX53. This powerful ARM® Cortex™-A8 (1GHz) based module, with a large number of peripheral interfaces and a huge memory capacity of 1GB DDR2-SDRAM and 2GB NAND flash, is the perfect basis for high end image processing applications. The Argos2D - A100 comes with a complete software application framework that can be tailored to the user's requirements. In addition, the Advanced Development and Analysis Framework (ADAF) developed by NISYS can be used to build stand-alone object recognition systems, such as traffic sign recognition, license plate detection, etc.
