Inuitive has announced a reference design for Google’s Project Tango, the NU3000, which serves as a processing engine for 3D sensing and smart sensor hub. The device is a multi-core processor that extracts real-time depth from stereo and depth images, to fuse a real-time localization and mapping solution. The module features two cameras arranged in a stereoscopic setting, a fish-eye camera for 2D wide-angle imaging and an inertial motion unit.
The module also can interface and manage three cameras: two as a stereo depth source, and one as an RGB sensor and process all three video streams in real time. The NU3000 architecture combines dedicated hardware accelerators with vector DSPs for a power efficient execution of depth sensing and high-level algorithms and applications.
