Field Laptops with ZED2i

I’m looking to do some field testing with the ZED2i camera in a quite cold environment. I’m looking to use a rugged or semi-rugged laptop to do this. Many of these rugged laptops (like the Panasonic Toughbook) do not have Nvidia GPU’s to use CUDA.

What are some common laptops / jetsons / NUC’s used in the field? What are my best options for a CUDA compatible GPU and reliability / ruggedness?

I’d like to stay in a x86_64 architecture if possible.


Hi @brjthomas
Welcome to the Stereolabs community.

An NVIDIA GPU is required to use our cameras with the ZED SDK, you can find different rugged laptops with discrete NVIDIA GPUs.
Otherwise, you can consider NVIDIA Jetson-based embedded devices from SysLogic, Vecow, AdLink, Neousys, Forecr, ConnectTech, etc.

Our ZED Box is also a solution, but it’s not made to work in harsh environments without external protection.

Hi again!

Embedded Jetson-based devices, as well as the zed box, unfortunately are not a viable choice for my project right now.

In terms of rugged field laptops I have found

The Lenovo option is a working solution.
