Vivo has introduced yet another interesting piece of technology, dubbed as Time of Flight (TOF) 3D Sensing Technology. The company claims that the new technology will enable new opportunities in facial gesture and motion recognition, 3D photography and AR.
The new technology is said to be 10 times more accurate than the one present in Apple. This is because it uses 300,000 sensor points, which enables to capture more depth as compared to Structured Light Technology. This also allows to 3D map at up to three meters from the phone. The TOF also has a smaller baseline that the one present in Apple iPhone X, meaning.
The company claims that the technology is tested and meets industry standards required for integration with current apps soon. Further, it is not just restricted to facial recognition, but open up new possibilities for entertainment as well as work.
Through precise and accurate tracking of gestures and movements of the user’s entire body, TOF 3D Sensing Technology creates entirely new ways to interact with and experience the world. So, for example, by merging AR capabilities with this technology, one can try on clothes virtually with enhanced 3D virtual fitting. It can also track gestures for mixed reality (MR) games and provide an entirely new way to immerse yourself in a virtual world through MR games.
When fused with AI recognition, the TOF 3D Sensing Technology will understand what it sees and this allows users to capture entire objects using 3D modelling. Users can therefore scan and recreate entire objects digitally. This technology can be used to scan lesson props for education, or even help scan critical parts of the body for medical purposes.
