Mantis Vision's Structured Light 3D Camera Used in Google's Project Tango Tablets

Marketwired: Mantis Vision confirms that its MV4D 3D camera is used in Google's Project Tango tablet. Mantis Vision camera consists of flash projector hardware components and includes structured light-based depth sensing algorithms. "3D represents a major paradigm shift for mobile. We haven't seen a change this significant since the introduction of the camera-phone. MV4D allows developers to deliver 3D-enabled mobile devices and capabilities to the world," said Amihai Loven, CEO, Mantis Vision. "This partnership with Google offers Mantis Vision the flexibility to expand quickly and strategically. It will fuel adoption and engagement directly with consumer audiences worldwide.

  1. Structured LIght didn't make it in the komg run for the Kinect. It was replaced by ToF. It seems as if this happens within Tango again, as pmd is the new Approach they announced for Tango. Why should they announce something new, if the existing was good enough!?

    1. TOF has its limits...
      The noise level on short to midrange will never be as good...
      just compare a raw frame from PMD tech\SoftKinetics of a face, or a corner...

  2. my guess is the PMD will be used for smaller\low quality\range products..
