Focus Camera AR0231

Hello,
How does the focus of this camera work? Is it an auto focus or manual? Is it possible to control it? If so, how?
Thank you

Dear Reway,

AR0231 camera uses auto focus.

Hello SteveNV,

We are facing problems getting the focus right on objects standing about 30cm from the camera. The image we get is totally blurry. Would that usually be a problem because of the short distance between both?

Thank you!

Hello Reway,

Could you let me know your using camera revision, DriveWorks version and command?
And please attach the screen also. Thanks.

Hello SteveNV,

Camera SF3323 Rev06 RCCB 16L030205
DriveWorks version 0.3.422 Release
Command ./sample_drivenet --input-type=camera --camera-type=ar0231-rccb

Thank you!

Dear Reway,

May I know do you have any scenario within 30cm? Thanks.

Hello SteveNV,

Independently from the scenario, our object will get blurry when placed in a distance of about 30cm to 1m from the camera. This is not an exact number, but the point is that the camera cannot focus on objects placed that close. The auto focus will only work properly on objects placed by a few meters far, maybe 2 or more.

One example could be detecting very close objects with a rear camera.

Thank you

Dear Reway,

If you want to focus at 30cm , then you need the screw top version where you can manually focus.
You can get screw top version cameras from Leopard Imaging.Thanks.
