In the IoT world, where multiple devices, from small drones to autonomous vehicles aim to mimic and replace human localization and navigation, achieving 6 Degrees of Freedom (6DOF) tracking is highly important.
The Intel® RealSense™ Tracking Camera T265 provides an all-inclusive high-quality tracking solution that input signals through Simultaneous Localization & Mapping (SLAM) algorithm on an Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ 2 VPU. The power-efficient camera consumes less than 1.5 Watt, features a small form factor and provides low latency poses at a sampling rate of 200Hz, making the camera platform agnostic.
First, we’ll present the use of the T265 with the Depth Camera D435 on a mobile robot for occupancy mapping, path planning, obstacle avoidance and autonomous navigation. The demo uses the open-source Realsense SDK & the corresponding Robot Operating System (ROS) packages. Second, we’ll showcase the use of the T265 along with the D415 Depth camera in an AR application that mimics a technician's lab.
