USB stereo camera plugin and installation

Thu May 17, 2018 5:34 pm

Hello ,
I am new to the Raspberrypi world and I have few questions:
Is it possible to use a USB stereo camera in a Raspberrypi I/O development kit with,of course, its compute module fitted in ?
Is there any particular code in order to access the stereo camera and see its output on a computer display?
Does Rasbperrypi Org. sell any usb stereo cameras?
That is all for now ,perhaps I may have more questions later.

Is there a reason why you're trying to use a USB stereo camera over the raspberry pi cameras with the CSI connector? The raspberry pi IO board allows you to connect two Raspberry Pi Camera Modules two create a stereo camera. There is already established code to access these stereo cameras and since the CSI bus is directly connected to the GPU, there is only little impact on the CPU, leaving it available for other processing.
