Jetson Orin Nano Dev Kit (Jetpack 5.1.1) - Syncrhonised Stereo Global Shutter Cameras


I am currently working on a project in which I am intending to use a Jetson Orin Nano (Jetpack v5.1.1) with 2 global shutter cameras that are synchronised (capturing both images at the same time at 30fps+). I hope to use these images to do some image processing to understand the movement of the device.

After investigating for a couple days I’ve come to the summary that if I wanted these cameras to be synchronised, I would be required to use an external Camarray HAT (ArduCam for example) or I can use some sort of pin connection between the cameras directly?
Am I correct in thinking this is the case with the Jetson Orin Nano?
If so, do the examples below fit my requirements or are there better suited options?

*16MP IMX519 Autofocus Synchronized Quad-Camera Kit for Raspberry Pi, NVIDIA® Jetson Nano/Xavier NX/AGX Orin/Orin Nano/Orin NX - Arducam

*OV9281 Global Shutter Monochrome Stereoscopic Camera Bundle Kit

*Arducam AR0234 color global shutter snychonized stereo camera bundle kit

*Arducam OV9281 Monochrome Global Shutter Camera Module for Raspberry Pi

Any help is appreciated.

Looks like both of them are fitting. However I would suggest checking with vendor directly would be great.


Which two are you referring to when you stated “both of them are fitting”.

I have been in contact with vendors but I was hoping I could get a recommendation from Nvidia, as to which hardware will help bring about the results I require.

In particular, I like the idea of just getting 2 separate cameras and connecting them directly to the jetson and having them synced at hardware level (for the best results).

Would using a camera like this suffice for time synced stereo cameras?: Arducam OV9281 Monochrome Global Shutter Camera Module for Raspberry Pi

I appreciate any time spent on this.

I have managed to get a pair of cameras working with my Jetson but I am struggling to set any sort of auto-exposure. The cameras I have do not directly support auto-exposure but I was hoping to use Argus to set an auto-exposure feature. Is that possible?

Any of Bayer sensor using Argus are support AE feature.
