Inuitive’s and Heptagon’s technologies enable HiScene’s next generation AR for indoor and outdoor applications
Santa Clara CA, Bejing CN, Ra’anana IL, November XX, 2016 – Business Wire – HiScene, Inuitive and Heptagon announced today they have teamed up to take Augmented Reality (AR) another step forward with HiAR Glasses, HiScene’s next generation of AR glasses. The companies worked together to develop a complete solution for advanced 3D depth sensing and AR/VR applications that delivers excellent performance even in changing light conditions and outdoors. HiAR Glasses incorporate Inuitive’s NU3000 Computer Vision Processor and Heptagon’s advanced illumination. The combined technologies provide a superior and seamless user experience, marking a new standard in the current market.
The glasses’ AR operating system provides stereoscopic interactivity, 3D gesture perception, intelligent speech recognition, natural image recognition, inertial measuring unit (IMU) displayed with an improved 3D graphical user interface.
“We are committed to providing the best possible user experience to our customers, and for this reason we have partnered with Inuitive and Heptagon to create the most intelligent AR glasses available on the market,” says Chris Liao, CEO of HiScene. “The technologies implemented provide a seamless experience in a robust and compact format, without compromising on battery life.”
Inuitive’s NU3000 serves AR Glasses by providing 3D depth sensing and computer vision capabilities. This solution acts also as a smart sensors hub to accurately time-stamp and synchronize multiple sensors in a manner that off-loads the application processor and shortens the development time. “Inuitive’s solution allows Hiscene to provide the reliability, latency and performance its customers expect,” says Shlomo Gadot, CEO of Inuitive. “With Inuitive technology, AR products and applications can now be used outdoors without the sunlight interfering or damaging their efficacy thanks to cameras featuring depth perception.”
Heptagon provides unique IR Pattern Illuminators, which were chosen to handle changing light conditions and plain surfaces. In addition, the range and Field of Illumination features of Heptagon’s LIMA stereo pattern projector ensure superior lighting and added texture for higher-quality results.
“Our Wide Field of Illumination provides better gesture recognition, and our miniaturization technologies enable ultra-small, high performance, low power components for 3D AR/VR applications,” says Dr. Erik H. Volkerink, Heptagon’s Chief Business Officer and Executive Vice President.
