Hi, I'm making an autonomous drone and need a hardware solution that supports at least 3 cameras streaming simultaneously for SLAM (obstacle avoidance and positioning).

It needs to have pretty good processing power, I'd say Jetson TX1 level at minimum - but none of the Jetson dev kits support more than 2 MIPI cameras (can I use other interfaces?) and the modules + carriers are quite pricy. I'm looking for the cheapest way to get all this, including the cameras.

I'm not super into the embedded computing market generally so hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

As for me, finding a good company these days which can develop good SLAM software for you is an incredibly difficult task. The problem is that this niche started to develop quite recently and there are not so many professional companies which you can trust, but personally I recommend you to pay attention to https://dioramslam.com/

These guys started to develop in this direction one of the first and currently are professionals in the field of SLAM software. They have proven their reliability and ability to create effective solutions for SLAM systems.
