3D depth sensing chip unveiled at CES 2018
Machine vision and Artificial Intelligence solution provider from Taiwan, with advance depth algorithm and chip design technologies, Altek will unveil its latest 3D-depth sensing chip, AL6100 at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
"Our first generation real time depth chip AL3200 launched in 2016 has achieved a remarkable success in millions of smartphone and portable devices worldwide. We are now excited to announce the next-gen AL6100 depth chip, together with active IR(infrared) light will further enhance our real time depth quality and computing to support a wide range of applications such as smartphone, surveillance, autonomous vehicle, smart home assistant, drone, sweeping robot, etc,” said Jason Lin, Senior Vice President of Altek Corporation, adding that the 3D-depth sensing chip will be for mass production shipping by the end of March.
At CES, Altek will showcase the AL6100 chip with application in smartphone, surveillance camera, and VR/AR camera.
With regards to surveillance camera, deep learning technology focusing on human recognition under various environments and lighting conditions will be demonstrated.
This enables the surveillance camera to act as an edge device in the network to free up bandwidth and to protect individual privacy.
For VR/AR, the real time depth information provided by AL6100 allows applications to have a more accurate perception of its surrounding environment and the posture and gesture of people in proximity.
