Lumentum Highlights 3D Sensing At Photonics West
Partners Himax, Orbbec, and Occipital show 3D sensing products for applications from facial ID to large scale 3D mapping
Lumentum will be showing its latest photonics-based products at SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco, this week, including those supporting the dynamic 3D sensing market.
Lumentum has a wide range of diode laser products for 3D sensing applications and has developed partnerships with companies supporting the growing 3D sensing market. Several of these partners will have information and displays of products incorporating Lumentum's diode lasers in the Lumentum booth.
Lumentum partner Himax, with its SLiM module for mobile device platforms, incorporates a Lumentum diode laser, wafer-level optics (WLO), laser drivers, diffractive optical elements (DOE) and additional semiconductor components for Face ID facial authentication.
Another 3D sensing partner, Orbbec, uses Lumentum diode lasers in its Astra mini camera. This highly compact platform is ideal for a wide range of settings, including gesture control, robotics, 3D scanning, and point cloud development for mobile devices ranging from schools to industrial environments, and even retail locations.
Lumentum diode lasers also support Occipital's Structure Sensor 3D sensor for mobile devices and enable applications like 3D scanning, large-scale 3D mapping of rooms and buildings, and inside-out positional tracking for AR/VR headsets. Occipital also leverages Lumentum diode lasers for its Bridge headset for mixed-reality, where users can see virtual content mixed seamlessly with their real-world environment.
