What is coded light

What is Coded Light?

Coded light projects a known pattern onto a scene and evaluates how this pattern deforms on surfaces in 3D. By analyzing this deformation, the Intel RealSense vision processor inside the camera can calculate the depth and surface information of the scene. The SR305 uses multiple different coded light patterns that change over time to increase the accuracy of the depth image. The camera also features a 2MP RGB sensor to allow for fully textured and colored depth points.

Perfect for beginners to depth

For developers who are new to Intel RealSense products, this camera offers the perfect low-risk place to start getting your feet wet. As a low cost plug and play peripheral, the camera can provide 640x480 depth resolution at 60 frames per second. Even better, since the camera uses our Intel RealSense SDK 2.0, any applications you build will work with any other Intel RealSense depth camera. Our SDK 2.0 is designed for all Intel RealSense products, so all of your hard work will remain supported by any of our products, including future generations of cameras.

Short range optimized depth camera SR305

Short on range, long on uses

The Intel RealSense SR305 is a shorter range depth camera, optimized for best depth at 0.2-1.5m. As with other structured and coded light depth cameras, it functions best indoors or in a controlled lighting situation. It can also function well at lower light levels down to 0 Lux, since infrared light is being projected onto the scene from the camera. Applications for the SR305 include: face analytics and tracking, scanning and mapping, scene segmentation, hand and finger tracking and augmented reality.

Part of the family

With many different depth and tracking products joining the Intel RealSense family, Intel recognized that our customers would always want to be able to easily upgrade from one generation or product line to the next. The Intel RealSense SDK 2.0 is designed to allow seamless transitions, no matter which device you start working with, or which device is perfect for your project – today, or tomorrow.
