Configurations in TES 3D Surround View
The TES 3D Surround View has a preset resolution of 1280x720@60 Hz (720p). To change this parameter according to the supported resolution of your display, it is necessary to have proper access to your target module serial console (please refer to Apalis iMX6 Getting Started Guide).
Once you have access, modify the first two lines of the configuration file "/home/root/tsv/cfg/app.cfg" in the target module indicating width and height, respectively, with the following command line.
To control the camera and observe the vehicle surroundings, please connect a USB Keyboard.
The controls used in this mode are:
|←, ↑, →, ↓||Move the camera vertically and horizontally around the center|
|⇧ + ↑, ⇧ + ↓||Zoom in and out|
|⇧ + ←, ⇧ + →||Orbit horizontally around the center axis|
To access one of the fixed views, press number keys from 0 to 9, as the sidebar from the Graphical User Interface shows.
This demo application does not have touch screen interactivity.
Displays and Monitors used in Embedded Systems are available in a myriad of configuration possibilities - resistive, capacitive or without touch, single or multi touch, different resolution, density of pixels, pin-out and clock frequency are some examples.
To make things easy for you, Toradex provides specific instructions on how to use its display offerings as well as comprehensive information about how to interface your custom display or monitor to Toradex modules. Please refer to the table below:
