To build your system, you will need different types of equipment. We tried a lot of equipment for Argos VR Systems so we are recommending several ones of them. You don’t have to buy the gear especially, it is just gear we tested and know it works.
In this tutorial, we will explain to you how to build compatible PVC tubes to connect the different hubs of your geode.
On the next versions we will work on these features:
- Instant capture
- Totally synch still capture
- Synch video capture
If you wonder how to connect your rig …
The architecture of our system is totally original.
First of all, all the system runs on Raspberry Pis, even the server (the “master”). You don’t need any application running Windows on a PC. Windows is not a real-time OS, Linux, yes.
When you come to work with a system controlling tenth of pi cameras, you have to manage a real network of nano-computers comparable to a network you can find in a two/three story office building.
On this page, you can find the list of the supported cameras by Argos.
Number of supported cameras and media players: 2366
In this article we will comment a screenshot recording presenting the process to register a new satellite.

3D reconstruction of our calibration model Argos to register the rig… At the end of the process, we generate the XMP metedata to be used with scans in production. The directory used here is a copy of the directory generated on the NAS when capturing using ArgosVr Master application. The images were named by the system out of the id of the satellite and uploaded automatically on the NAS.
