Intel has launched two new 3D Real Sense cameras ,the D415 and D435 which were unveiled at CES 2018. 3D capabilities can be added to any device by these cameras as per the company claims. These Intel RealSense Depth Cameras come with USB form factor and real time depth data can be processed by these new cameras because of a D400 depth module, a turnkey optical depth solution, and the new Intel Real Sense vision processor.The D415 and D435 depth cameras come with Intel’s RealSense SDK 2.0, which is now a cross-platform, open source SDK.
Intel explains the technology as,”RealSense Stereo Depth Technology brings 3D to devices and machines that only see 2D today.”
As the Intel says , Not just developers and manufacturers, but also makers and educators will be the targeted audience for these cameras as they are pretty easy to use and works as soon as they are plugged in. A human-like 3D vision is added to the devices with these new Intel RealSense Depth Cameras.
Intel RealSense VP Sagi Ben Moshe, in a statement, said, “Many of today’s machines and devices use 2D image recognition-based computer vision, but with Intel RealSense’s best-in-class depth technology, we are redefining future technologies to ‘see’ like a human, so devices and machines can truly enrich people’s lives.”
In terms of design and appearance both the cameras feels same but the difference lies in the field of view.
The D415 has a field of view which is narrower than D435 and has a rolling shutter that scans it’s surroundings from one side to the other to take an image
while, the D435 has a field of view wider than D415 and it has a global shutter which takes all images at once.
This means that for capturing pictures of smaller objects which requires accurate measurements ,D415 will be more useful and accurate
While for capturing depth perception in moving objects and larger areas , D435 is more useful and accurate. Also Resolution of 1280×720 pixels at 90 frames per second is offered by depth precision camera while same resolution at 30fps is offered by RGB sensor.
About the functions and features of cameras Intel said, “With its compact, ready-to-use form, the Intel RealSense Depth Cameras not only makes it easy for developers to build 3D depth sensing into any design, but they are also ready to be embedded into high-volume products.”
Taking about the price ,the D415 is priced at $149 (Approx. Rs. 9,500), while the D435 is priced at $179 (Approx.Rs. 11,400).
