  1. Bluetechnix will be present at the following events. Get in touch, experience our products and discuss your applications: 7-11 April 2014 Sensor & Test / Nuremberg / Germany This post will be updated constantly
  2. Yes, you can use multiple Argos3D - P100 on one host. Just call pmdOpen() as often as cameras are connected. Using the source command GetSerialNumber, you can get the serial number for each camera handle.
  3. Hi, If you use your Argos3D - P100 with higher frame rate, please consider the recommended frame-rate integration time combinations as shown in the user manual on page 18 section 7.4.2 "Integration Time vs. Frame-rate". If you used your Argos3D - P100 beyond the limits your device may be damaged! Roman
  4. Welcome to this forum which mainly deals with Argos3D – P100 topics. The Argos3D - P100 is a new ToF Depth Sensor, developed by Bluetechnix, operating on the Time-of-Flight (ToF) principle. The Argos3D - P100 is equipped with a PMD PhotonICs® 19k-S3 Time-of-Flight chip. Using active IR illumination, the sensor is able to capture depth and intensity information at a resolution of 160 x 120 pixels with up to 160* frames per second independently of ambient light. With a range of 3m, a field of view of 90° and a size of only 75 x 57 x 26 mm, this USB camera can be used for next generation sensor systems in various application fields like robotics, gesture recognition, HMI or people counting.

  5. No, there is no MDK for Linux available at the moment.
  6. Use the source command DisableIntegrationTimeCheck to unlock higher integration times. WARNING! Camera can be damaged by setting too high integration times!
  7. Use the source command WriteConfigToFlash but be careful, your cameras default settings will be overwritten!
  8. Yes, but keep in mind that there has to be an optical barrier between the camera window and the illumination window. Otherwise the reflections in the glass will make it impossible to get valid distances.
  9. Check your integration time settings and the distance to your scene. If the returned light is too weak the sensor can’t calculate distance and amplitude data. Invalid pixels are blacked out by the camera using a threshold stored in the cameras registers.
  10. Ubuntu Linux is the reference distribution, other distributions may be used but without support by Bluetechnix GmbH.
  11. Officially supported operating systems are Windows XP, Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux. Others may work too but are not supported yet!
  12. Go to for support and further information about your Argos3D - P100
  13. Use the source command SetIntegrationTime to change your camera’s integration time.
  14. A table with typical integration times for different distances can be found in the Argos3D - P100 user manual in section 7.2.3 in table 7-4.
  15. The number of frames per second is influenced by integration time, frame time and sequence length. Default settings are 1500us integration time, 6250us frame time and a sequence length of 1. This results in approximately 40fps and is calculated as follows. sequence length / (4 x frame time in seconds) or sequence length / (4 x integration time in seconds) the lower value counts your fps. To achieve the maximum number of frames per second change the register value of frame time to 0 by using the source command “SetRegister 131 0” WARNING! Camera can be damaged by setting too high integration times!
