EETimes-Europe: Occipital and Inuitive have jointly developed a structured light 3D sensing solution for mixed reality, augmented reality and virtual reality (MR/AR/VR) headsets and robotics. The solution merges Occipital’s Structure Core embeddable depth sensor with Inuitive’s NU3000 depth processing chip. The new solution is able to sense depths from 30cm to greater than 5m with an accuracy as high as ±0.17% RMS at 1m. System latency (from camera to fully-tracked pose) is just 10ms. EThe power consumption for depth + visible is between 1.3W and 2.0W, depending on the configuration selected.
