Infineon Technologies and software and 3D Time of Flight system specialist pmdtechnologies developed what they presented as the smallest and most powerful 3D image sensor at CES in Las Vegas. The REAL3 single-chip solution measures 4.4 x 5.1 mm, and offers high-resolution data with low power consumption.
The depth sensor time-of-flight technology enables an accurate 3D image of faces, hand details, or objects. The chip also provides additional options for photos, with enhanced autofocus, bokeh effect for photo and video, and improved resolution in poor lighting conditions. Real-time full-3D mapping also allows the presentation of authentic augmented reality experiences.
