In this blog we will take a look at the potential future uses of a Intel Realsense 3D cameras, some of which are currently being tested there required environment. Check out our previous post on what Intel Realsense is and how it works.

Where could Intel Realsense 3D Cameras be used?

Intel Realsense 3D camera technology brings an entirely new toolbox to many industries. Firstly let’s briefly cover some of the applications of Realsense 3D in devices.

  • Computer front facing cameras/ webcams and VR headsets
  • Mobile computers/ tablets and smartphones
  • Areal drones

In this blog we will focus on the uses in tablet devices as the front facing/ webcam camera applications use a short range technology. They are uses for things like facial recognition and motion detection, popular within the gaming industry and education. And then machines such as drones use it for object detection and automation.

Moving onto Realsense in mobile devices. When Intel launched the R200 unit which allows rear facing long range cameras to feature in mobile devices it opened up a whole new level of use for the technology. It could now be used for measuring distances, depth and scanning environments into 3D. We’ve had the chance to get hands on and explore the MobileDemand xTablet8650 that features this technology and demo some of the software currently available. Some of the biggest potential uses are in

  • Logistics and warehousing – For the measuring of boxes, pallets and stock, measurements can be calculated in less than a second.

  • Medical –Monitor the depth and size of wounds, as well to track progress.  Allowing greater efficiency and clinical decision making.
  • Highway maintenance – Calculate the total size of potholes, cracks and damages. This would give a more accurate measurement for reinstatement calculations and a better understanding of the damage to the surface.

Potential Uses of Intel Realsense 3D Camera in Tablets

  • Surveyors and service engineers – For taking 3D scans of areas and environments. A more detailed result can be produces than typical measurements.
  • Airlines – Allows passengers to accurately measure luggage before arriving at airport. Allows airlines to get a more accurate understanding of how much space is being used and provides an audit trail of checked baggage.

With the demands and uses for mobile computers growing, manufacturers are constantly looking for ways to improve their products and beat their competitors. In this blog we will take a quick look at how the latest Intel RealSense 3D camera technology is making it’s way into tablets. Keep a lookout for our second post that will cover the uses of tablets with 3D cameras.

Firstly, let’s take a look at what an Intel RealSense™ 3D camera is. RealSense camera technology uses a standard 2D camera for regular photo and video, along with an infrared camera and an infrared laser projector. The infrared components allow RealSense technology to determine the distance between objects, separating objects from the background layers behind them and overall allowing for largely improved object, facial and gesture recognition over standard cameras.

At the point of writing this blog there are 3 different versions of Realsense 3D cameras, the F200, SR300 and the R200.

SR300 – The replacement for the F200, second generation Realsense technology allowed the camera to implement an infrared laser projector system, Fast VGA infrared camera, and a 2MP colour camera. Used in close range front facing applications, great for face tracking, motion detection and close depth detection. Listing the technical improvements over the first gen camera would take a while so in summary:

  • Support for Hand and person tracking modes.
  • Increased Range and Lateral Speed
  • Improved Colour Quality under Low-light Capture and Improved RGB Texture for 3D Scan
  • Improved Colour and Depth Stream Synchronization
  • Decreased Power Consumption

R200 – Intel RealSense™ Camera R200 is a long range peripheral 3D camera. While front facing technology can be applied into mobile devices, we are more likely to see it featured in a rear facing specification. This is the unit that most tablets will feature due to it offering more real world uses. This camera opens up the potential of 3D technology to a whole new industry, using the same fundamental Realsense technology as above it brings new tools to developers and users that can save time, automate processes and create detailed visuals like never before.

In our second blog we will take a look at the application for this camera, such as manufacturing plants road maintenance and in the medical field.

We feel this technology can play a big part in the real world, automating processes, giving more accurate readings and increasing overall workflow.
