PolarEyes unveils whole new sets of information and unlocks features never-before-available at mobile form factor and price point.
PolarEyes is the world’s first optical module that can map the complete polarization information of a scene without filtering or loss of signal strength, providing 3D depth maps, increased shape contrast, and molecular makeup of objects all in a form-factor and at a price point to allow polarization information to proliferate for the first time.
The full-stack, system-level solution combines physics and optics, software and hardware to power everything from next-generation smartphones and consumer electronics, to new healthcare and automotive applications. Built on foundational polarization IP, PolarEyes goes far beyond improving on known limitations to existing 3D sensing optics. By introducing whole new sets of information about a scene, PolarEyes creates entirely new applications.
Spoof-Proof Facial Authentication
Provides correct identification of users versus facial-spoofing masks and photos to safeguard consumer devices against fraudsters.
Works around glare, the reflective light which often overpowers vision and machine vision, enabling robots to better maneuver and automobiles the ability to monitor for distracted driving – a new safety measure required in all vehicles by 2025.
Identifies molecular makeup of objects, giving automakers the ability to alert drivers to road hazards like black ice, and doctors the potential to diagnose skin cancer from a smartphone.
Enhanced 3D Sensing
Provides more details to detect shapes and edges with increased contrast; improving virtual backgrounds’ quality and 3D object scanning resolution in AR/VR environments.
