I am designing my robot and I have quite design issues with the available stereo cameras on a market. For the prototype I am using ZED M but it is too expensive and quite large.
The question is, do I really need ZED M if I am using my own algorithms to compute the depth? So is having a global shutter, usb 3.0 connection, fixed baseline and wide fisheye lenses will do the job for me?
I am thinking to get the components which are very small and lense+sensor should be no larger that 14mm x 9mm x 5mm and looks like that the sensors are very small with small lenses also on a market.
I am using stereo camera for SLAM and obstalc detection.
