Intel® RealSense™ Technology is a collection of hardware and software capabilities that allows you to interact with a device in a non-traditional manner and enables you to develop highly interactive applications or solutions.
Intel® RealSense™ camera fits remarkable technology into a small package. There are three cameras that act like one-a 1080p HD camera, an infrared camera, and an infrared laser projector-allowing them to like the human eye to sense depth and track human motion. Intel® RealSense™ technology redefines how we interact with our devices for a more natural, intuitive and immersive experience, supported by the powerful performance of Intel® processors.
Intel® RealSense™ camera combines a these cameras with a microphone array. The infrared projector projects an infrared grid onto the scene and the included infrared camera records the reflection on surfaces to compute the depth information and combine it with the recorded 2D camera record. With the integrated microphone array it is possible to localize sound sources in the space and perform background noise cancellation.
With Intel® RealSense™ Software Development Kit and RealSense™ modules, you can create compelling, exciting applications in a variety of application areas, or you can just buy needed modules and cables seperatly.
Another impressive little device is the Intel® Joule. It is targeted at engineers to be used as a tool to create new applications and hardware platforms.
Intel® Joule empowers you to tackle any challenge - from computer vision to machine learning. It supports Intel RealSense cameras that enable robots and drones to collect and analyze data from their environment.
With Intel® Joule™, IoT and embedded developers as well as entrepreneurs are able to take their ideas from concept to prototype and ready for production in less time and for lower development and certification cost.
The Intel® Joule™ module features high-end computing, graphics and large memory in a tiny, low-power package, making it an ideal platform for innovative IoT edge computing applications and products requiring advanced computer vision.
The Intel® Joule™ platform is supported by a vast software and hardware ecosystem, enabling developers to choose from multiple operating systems and take advantage of off-the-shelf libraries and peripherals to further accelerate development.
The Intel® Joule™ 550x, (1.5GHz quad Core Atom, 3GB RAM & 8GB eMMC Flash) the entry level platform is ideally suited for applications requiring computer vision or real-time IoT edge analytics. The 550x offers high performance in a tiny, low-power package with a wide range of high-speed I/O and runs on Ubuntu, Windows 10 IoT Core, or a Yocto-built Linux.
The premium model, Intel® Joule™ 570x, (1.7GHz Quad Core Atom, 4GB RAM & 16GB eMMC Flash) retains the same tiny size, low-power profile, and fast I/O, and provides a significant boost in CPU and GPU performance and memory. The 570x is capable of multiple simultaneous workloads useful for autonomous robotics, drones, and augmented reality, such as object recognition, 3D SLAM, natural language processing, and deep learning.
The Joule system-on-module mini-computer features RealSense camera support and runs Ubuntu Linux Core. Best of all, its specs are very impressive for what it is.
