INUITIVE ANNOUNCES NU3000 BASED REFERENCE DESIGN FOR PROJECT TANGO
Inuitive, a developer of 3D computer vision and image processing devices, has announced a reference design dedicated for Google’s Project Tango. The reference design is a compact sized module, harnessing Inuitive’s NU3000 to serve as the processing engine for 3D sensing and smart sensor hub in Project Tango. NU3000 is a multi-core processor, capable of extracting real time depth from stereo, as well as process the depth images (together with other sensors) to fuse a real time localization and mapping solution. The reference design module contains two cameras arranged in a stereoscopic setting, a fish-eye camera for 2D wide-angle imaging and an inertial motion unit.
Google recently released a Project Tango Tablet Development Kit, in the form of a seven-inch tablet. This platform is mostly aimed at developers, to allow developing applications for Tango systems.
