Intel RealSense Technology is a set of tracking and depth technologies. They are designed to give machines and devices depth perceptions capabilities that will enable them to “see” and understand the world. Autonomous drones, robots, AR/VR, smart home devices etc. are some of the uses for these computer vision capabilities amongst many others broad market products. Made of Vision Processors, Depth and Tracking Modules, and Depth Cameras, RealSense technology is supported by an open source, cross-platform SDK called liberal sense that simplifies supporting cameras for third-party software developers, system integrators, ODMs and OEMs.
The new Intel RealSense D400 Product Family was launched with the Intel RealSense Vision Processor D4, Intel RealSense Depth Module D400 Series, and 2 ready to use depth cameras in January 2018. These cameras were Intel RealSense Depth Cameras D435 and D415. The Intel RealSense D400 Product Family includes the following products:
Intel RealSense Vision Processor D4 Series
Vision processors based on 28 nanometres (nm) process technology to compute real-time stereo depth data, the Intel RealSense Vision Processor D4 series features a new and advanced stereo depth algorithm that enables more accurate and longer range depth perception than Intel’s previous generation. RealSense Vision processor D4 and RealSense Vision Processor D4m are the two products in this family.
Intel RealSense Depth Module D400 Series
Including 5 calibrated imaging sub-system, Intel RealSense Depth Module D400 Series features active or passive IR stereo depth technology, rolling or global shutter image sensor technology, wide or standard FOV, and in some offerings an RGB sensor.
Intel RealSense Depth Camera D400 Series
The two new depth cameras, D415 and D435 feature the RealSense Vision processor D4 and camera sensors, supported by the cross-platform and open source Intel RealSense SDK 2.0 or librealsense on GitHub.
Intel RealSense Depth Camera D415
Including the Intel RealSense Vision Processor D4 featuring high depth resolution, up to 1280×720 at 30 frames per second (fps), long-range capabilities, rolling shutter technology and a narrow field of view ideal for precise measurements, the Intel RealSense Depth Camera D415 is designed for easy setup with USB 3.0 and is in a sleek form factor for portability. It offers a high-depth resolution when the object is small in size and requires precise measurements.
Intel RealSense Depth Camera D435
Ideal for capturing stereo depth in a variety of applications that help perceive the world in 3D, the Intel RealSense Depth Camera D435 includes the Intel RealSense Vision Processor D4 featuring high depth resolution – up to 1280×720 at 30 frames per second (fps), long-range capabilities, global shutter technology and a wide field of view. It offers accurate depth perception when the object is moving or the device is in motion, and it covers more field of view, minimising blind spots.
