Our patented DepthSense 3D Imaging Time-of-Flight CMOS sensors are smart enough to understand the most subtle of everyday human gestures and the shape, size and behavior of objects. They measure how long it takes for infrared light to make the trip from the camera and back – the Time-of-Flight – and give the 3D DepthSense camera power to turn raw data into real time, 3D images, as well as greyscale confidence and depth map images.
DepthSense 3D Imaging Time-of-Flight CMOS sensors are available from Texas Instruments and Melexis.
The OPT8140 is the first consumer electronic certified Time-of-Flight sensor manufactured by Texas Instruments. It powers our DepthSense 325 camera as well as the Creative Senz3D camera.
The MLX75023 sensor, featuring SoftKinetic technology and manufactured in Melexis’ automotive-grade CMOS mixed signal process, is the highest resolution 3D sensor available for automobile safety and infotainment markets. It works in full sunlight, making it the perfect solution for a vehicle’s cockpit. It can be used for natural 3D gesture recognition and robust driver monitoring, bringing a new level of infotainment navigation control and safety features.
