Central to the Persee N1 is the Gemini 2 camera, utilizing active stereo infrared technology. This component is enhanced by ORBBEC’s proprietary ASIC, designed for high-quality depth processing. The camera’s field of view (FoV) is broad, with horizontal and vertical ranges of 91° and 66° respectively, and it operates effectively within a 0.15-10m range.

The device achieves depth resolution of up to 1280×800 pixels at 30 frames per second. In terms of color imaging, it supports a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at the same frame rate. The RGB FoV is provided in two aspects: 16:9 (H86° x V55°) and 4:3 (H63° x V50°). These specifications underscore the Persee N1’s capability to capture detailed depth and color information in various operational environments.
