Tracking solutions

Tracking cameras allow devices to understand their own position and relative location, which is critical for navigating environments. For example, robots not only need to know how far they are from obstacles, but also understand their own position relative to their environment. Robots and drones need to understand the difference between a changing visual field and one that is changing due to its own motion. Our tracking solutions are designed to fit your project requirements for cost, weight and tracking quality.


For high quality tracking without depth, choose the T265 peripheral. With its small form factor and low power consumption, the Intel® RealSense™ Tracking Camera T265 has been designed to give you the tracking performance you want straight off‑the‑shelf.

It seems obvious, but many forget that in order to do so they must ‘see and understand’ in 3D to reliably, accurately and quickly calculate their position and what’s around them. Giving robots the ability to map…

Hand tracking and Gesture Recognition

When we start to talk about hand tracking and gesture recognition, they can be easily confused for each other, so it’s worthwhile to start with a brief explanation of both, what they are and how they differ. Both are methods which allow users to use their hands to interact with computers, without the need for…
