StereoPi V2 RED Slim
This kit includes:
- StereoPi V2 RED Slim board
- two short power cables (JST connectors) for advanced users
- three jumpers
StereoPi is an open-source stereoscopic camera based on Raspberry Pi. It can capture, save, livestream, and process real-time stereoscopic video and images. StereoPi opens up countless possibilities in robotics, AR/VR, computer vision, drone instrumentation, panoramic video, and more.
StereoPi V2 RED Slim Edition - Perfect for DIY ninjas and those wanting to embed StereoPi v2 in a tight space. This board is the same as the standard edition, but without all the bulky connectors - the Ethernet RJ45 jack, GPIO header, and dual USB Type-A connector have not been populated. To use this board, you will need your own Raspberry Pi Compute Module, cameras, and camera ribbon cables. Two short power cables already included.

flying through a forest,
flying through an unknown shaped/location static/dynamic gap,
accurate 3D pose detection of an independently moving object
Let your robot see!
This nifty #MacFeeglePrime robot can see this world in stereo! Keegan Neave, the robot author, now enjoying with the remote driving in VR, and also using onboard ROS to help MacFeegle Prime to avoid obstacles. Next plans are adding ROS to Unity (did you know it’s possible?) and run the real mixed reality VR robot with autonomous features using Oculus Quest!
And what is your plan for your robot? :-)
StereoPi v2 key features:
Friendly Powering Method
You can now power the Stereo Pi v2 the same way as the Raspberry Pi 4! Just connect the USB-C power cable, and it works! Unlike the StereoPi V1 micro-USB connector, the USB-C connector on this new edition supports regular powering.
Hello, camera hackers!
For advanced users, we put all I2C camera lines on the board with 0 resistors gaps. This means you can use all the I2C you need for your special sensors. By physically connecting them to the appropriate GPIOs, you have hidden “dev board” features on the StereoPi V2. In addition to I2C, we pulled some other lines too.
Say “hi” to the new Compute Module 4!
With the new SoC module from Broadcom, you have up to twice the speed in your OpenCV Computer Vision and DNN applications! And the fast DDR4 memory will add more speed to your memory-intensive applications (e.g. video capture and processing)
Fast two-band Wi-Fi! No more USB dongle – you have a tested solution with brilliant drivers. Hey, drone makers! Did you know you can use an external antenna now? This is a big deal for your long-range FPV solutions (like WiFibroadcast, OpenHD, etc.)! Ah, and maybe WiFi boosters… You know what we mean, right? ☺
Advanced wireless management
Using the new CM4 wireless management features, you can physically power down your WiFi or Bluetooth through the software! Thanks to multifunctional GPIOs, introduced with the CM4, you can both power on/ off onboard wireless devices, and indicate their status by LED.
Thanks to the dedicated 1Gbit ethernet on the new Compute Module 4, there is no more compromise between the USB speed and Ethernet bandwidth!
BLUETOOTH 5.0, BLE!
All your project ideas for Bluetooth remote control can come true!
Extremely fast eMMC!
If you plan to use the StereoPi in industrial solutions, you can choose the eMMC equipped Compute Module
