When high-speed processing is of the essence, rc_visard users can now take the sensor’s semi-global-matching (SGM®) processing off-board: The SGM®Producer is a software library for running stereo matching processes on the graphics card of an external computer.

While the stereo matching component is part of the basic on-board software package on each rc_visard, the SGM®Producer utilizes the computing power of an external host computer’s graphics card (GPU). It enables a significant speed-up of the depth image computation: Frame rates of 25Hz can be achieved.

Installation of this GenICam-compatible producer is easy: There is no change of interface as compared to on-board stereo matching and even SGM® processing for multiple sensors on one GPU is possible.
