Framos Group and Stemmer Imaging have both been appointed as global approved suppliers for the Intel RealSense technology product line. This line is dedicated to Intel® RealSense™ technology which adds human like sensing and intelligence to devices and machines. The technology enables applications in the growing fields of virtual and augmented reality, mobile products and other segments benefiting from adding sense to make the experience better.
Under this agreement, Framos and Stemmer Imaging will offer the entire Intel® RealSense™ technology portfolio including its Intel® RealSense™ Vision Processor, Depth Modules and Depth Cameras – all supported with the latest Intel® RealSense™ SDK 2.0.
The new RealSense™ camera 400 series from Intel® is a modular concept that provides depth information and full colour HD images in both indoors and outdoors applications. It utlises proven Intel® depth sensor technology and includes a range of cameras and board level modules with depth computation via a next generation Intel ASIC. The technology supports both PC and embedded applications.
Mark Williamson, Director – Corporate Market Development at STEMMER IMAGING, said: “This exciting new technology represents a major development for 3D depth imaging and sets new levels of performance at a price point that opens up the use of 3D imaging to high volume embedded applications. It will have many applications in a wide variety of industries including retail, robotics and drones. The modular approach provides the flexibility to address the needs of many different market segments. In particular it brings 3D perception capabilities to the growing embedded vision sector, with modules optimised for embedded power and performance.”
“The Intel® RealSense™ technology products perfectly fit to FRAMOS’ mission: We enable our customers to make their machines see and think” says Dr. Andreas Franz, CEO of FRAMOS. “The Intel® RealSense™ technology product line is an excellent suite of components which lets machines make situational decisions. When integrated, any device will have the ability to naturally and intuitively interact with its environment. We are extremely proud to offer Intel’s® RealSense™ technology products and to enable our customers to benefit better and faster from the major shift into intelligent devices and machines. When it comes to drones, robots, VR, automotive, surveillance and 3D applications, the Intel® RealSense™ line is an optimal completion to our portfolio of imaging solutions ranging from sensors to systems.”
The Intel® RealSense™ cameras, containing a vision processor and depth module in a small form factor, provide stereo depth sensing capability, giving devices and machines a more realistic view of the world. Intel® RealSense™ tracking modules comprehend device position and orientation, providing the ability to navigate, map and learn the environment. Intel hardware and software platforms enable the next evolutionary step of “smart” devices and machines.
A FRAMOS Imaging Experts Academy webinar will feature Intel’s® RealSense™ Technology on October 26, 10 am EST / 4 pm GMT+1. Intel’s® Miroslav Mlejnek will outline the technical innovations and the combination of passive/ active stereo camera technology and SLAM tracking modules to realize advanced solutions. Registration for the free webinar is now available: https://imaging.framos.com/webinar-intel-realsense.
Also available from Framos, SMARTEK Vision is launching six new models of its twentynine camera series with the latest SONY Pregius 9 Megapixel and 12 Megapixel CMOS Global Shutter image sensors. The new twentynine cameras feature the SONY IMX253, IMX255, IMX267 and IMX304 sensors, and combine high-resolution with the benefits of the 2nd-generation SONY Pregius technology in a very small form factor. These new models open new possibilities to fast and affordable Machine Vision applications and Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS). The SMARTEK Vision’s UCC and GCC models support USB3 and GigE Vision, and are available from the prominent imaging distributor, FRAMOS.
The SMARTEK Vision twentynine cameras bring a powerful platform into a very small form factor of 29 mm x 29 mm, and comes with standard connectivity, enhanced processing capabilities, and a flexible customization concept.
