Intel recently came forth with the Intel RealSense lidar camera L515. it is the world’s most power-efficient, smallest, and higher resolution lidar that can capture millions and millions of depth points per second.
This new camera technology has been designed with proprietary technology capable of creating completely new ways of incorporating lidar inside smart devices so that the surrounding world is perceived three-dimensionally.
The L515 promises millimeter precision along with high-quality performance to products needing vision capabilities.
Do you really need it?
The Intel RealSense technology depth professionals came up with a revolutionary solid-state lidar for highly developed depth cameras families. RealSense lidar camera L515 comes with low power consumption, unmatched depth quality along with an ability to produce “23 million accurate depth points” per seconds. It is ideal for an extended range of applications.
The logistics market is a domain that leverages the full scene and high-resolution perception of L515. All companies searching for inventory management automation leverages accurate volumetric measurement of products allowing a precise state of inventory all times. Other applications for L515 includes robotics, retail, healthcare, scanning, and many others.
● Capable of measuring targets and objects with a combination of receivers and laser lights.
● Remote-sensing technology.
● Uses a miniaturized, advanced micro-electro-mechanical system mirror that scans the scene.
● Capable of achieving most power-efficient, high-resolution, and world’s smallest lidar.
● Offers “23 million accurate depth” pixels per second.
● Consumes less than 3.5 watts power allowing easy mounting over handheld devices.
● Flexibility of long battery life.
● The depth resolution of 1024 x 768 at 30 frames per second.
How does it differ?
With respect to depth edge fidelity and accuracy, the L515 holds a strong edge over all others. It offers superb consistency in high accuracy against the supported range of 0.25m – 9m. Intel RealSense Lidar Camera Technology also offers 23 million precise depth pixels per second along with a depth resolution of 1024 x 768 for 30 frames per second.
It has an internal vision processor, short photon-to-depth latency and blur artifact reduction system. Its camera also features an FHD RGB video camera, gyroscope, and an accelerometer. It also makes use of open-source Intel RealSense SDK 2.0 as the complete portfolio of Intel RealSense devices.
“Intel RealSense technology is used to develop products that enrich people’s lives by enabling machines and devices to perceive the world in 3D. With the L515 depth camera,” said Sagi BenMoshe, the corporate VP of Intel RealSense Group. “We are excited to bring high-resolution lidar performance to markets previously inaccessible to this technology.”
