You must have noticed all the software updates you get on your smartphone, your computer, and other electronic devices over the year.
With more than 50 versions of their iOS since 2010, you could say that Apple takes software improvement seriously!
Another example: At Tesla, an update added 40 miles of capacity to the electric cars' full system battery charge. The fact that this is possible without any physical reengineering is proof of the importance of software updates.
In a world of technology where products continuously improve over their lifetime, it is the software that breathes life into these products and delivers the user experience that we all know and love.
At Zivid, the search for high-quality is our obsession passion, and we never stop working to improve our products - and software.
So instead of going on vacation this summer, we decided to release the latest Software Development Kit for you. Enjoy the SDK 2.4!
What’s new with SDK 2.4?
Our Zivid Two camera now supports the Stripe Vision Engine, enabling you to get even better point clouds on shiny objects. Here is an example:
Remember, we introduced Zivid Stripe Vision Engine in this video not so long ago:
The point cloud accuracy and stability have been improved when using a Zivid 3D camera outside of its temperature specification. This improvement automatically applies to any existing Zivid camera. For example, a Zivid One+ camera will exhibit more stable point cloud accuracy when used below its minimum specification of 10°C, e.g., close to 0°C.
Look at how we test our cameras in extreme temperatures here:
The ZividNetworkCameraConfigurator is a new CLI tool that we have added which allows you to change the IP or hostname of a Zivid Two camera.
You can read more about how to use it in our Knowledge Base article.
SDK 2.4 does not support the original Zivid One camera. This does not affect Zivid One Plus Small, Medium, and Large. You can read more about this change here: Zivid One EOL document.
