ZED SDK 3.0 is the first release that supports the brand new ZED 2 camera, improved in every way with wider angle optics, more accurate factory calibration, built-in new generation environmental and motion sensors and industrial grade mounting system and enclosure.
The SDK 3.0 also introduces new neural depth sensing, improved positional tracking, new AI-based object detection API that detects and tracks objects in 3D, image quality enhancement, performance improvements and a lot more features.
To update to 3.0 from previous 2.X versions, read the migration guide.
--cimu on Windows.
DEPTH_MODE::PERFORMANCE. It now benefits from neural depth estimation with improved accuracy, edges and cleaner data.
DEPTH_MODE::PERFORMANCE speed with a performance boost of up to 15%.
resetTracking function. The yaw angle defined by the Transform parameter was not taken into account.
VIEW::DEPTH image when the scene has very low depth content.
libturbojpeg-0-dev dependency from Ubuntu 16 installer since the package is only available in Ubuntu 18.
ObjectData class that contains detected object data, such as 2D and 3D bounding box, tracking information, dimensions and 2D mask.
ULTRA mode to improve stereo depth accuracy. Other modes will be updated in following SDK updates.
textureness_confidence_threshold to remove noisy values in the depth map such as sky or untextured areas.
runtime Docker images for deployment of Docker applications using the ZED SDK.
Since there are a lot of changes compared to ZED SDK v2, a migration guide is available to help you switch easily from 2.8 to 3.0.
TYPE::VALUE, instead of the current
TYPE::TYPE_VALUE or even
sl_zed for clarity and ease of deployment.
Camera::grab is now blocking (guaranteed to return a new frame).
Camera::reboot() to perform a hardware reset of the camera.
CAMERA_SETTINGS enum is renamed to
InitParameters::image_enhancement for better black level correction, AWB adjustment and improved gamma curve
VIDEO_SETTINGS::SHARPNESS, a digital two-pass sharpening control that improves image quality.
record() function (now removed).
LOSSY compression modes. They have been removed from SDK recording options.
HEVC have been renamed into
SensorsData class to store the data of all the other sensors present in the new ZED 2 which includes
IMUData. It also includes a state;
CAMERA_MOTION_STATE which indicates if the camera is static, moving or falling.
Camera::getIMUData() has been replaced by
Camera::getSensorsData() to reflect the class update. It provides access to all the sensor values.
ULTRA mode with better accuracy and contours.
Camera::enableTracking is now
StreamingParameters::chunk_size to select the maximum size of each transmitted packet and improve packet transmission.
SpatialMap functions that include support for both
FusedPointCloud should now be used.
extractWholeSpatialMap is now smarter if a previously retrieved map is passed as an argument. It will retrieve only the difference between the initial and updated mesh.
