3D camera Intel RealSense D455 sees twice as far and works better than its predecessor


Intel introduced the new 3D camera RealSense Depth Camera D455. It can be used indoors and outdoors. You can use it in areas such as unmanned aerial vehicles, robotics, gaming systems, virtual and augmented reality platforms, and more.

The device contains a pair of scene depth sensors, an RGB sensor and an infrared projector. The optimal range of the camera increased to 6 meters. This made the new product twice as accurate in calculating the depth of the scene as compared to other cameras of the D400 series, but at the same time did not lead to a decrease in the viewing angle.

The error in calculating the scene depth in the range of 4 meters for the camera is less than 2%. In addition, the novelty offers several improvements. The distance between the depth sensors of the 3D camera increased by 95 mm. This allowed us to increase accuracy when determining the depth of the scene at a greater distance. Secondly, the depth sensors and the RGB sensor are on the same frame, which also improved the work in determining the depth and color alignment. Thirdly, all sensors received the same viewing angle, which allowed us to align the ratio of color depth and number of bits per pixel of the image. In addition, the RGB sensor and depth sensors use global shutter technology. This made it possible to synchronize the viewing angle between them, as well as to increase the accuracy of data transmission by two streams.

The camera has an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), thanks to which developers will be able to create solutions with advanced functions for determining the depth of the scene and tracking movements.

The output resolution of 3D camera data is up to 1280 × 720 pixels, the flow rate is up to 90 frames per second. The resolution of the RGB sensor is 1280 × 800 pixels at 30 frames per second.

Dimensions RealSense Depth Camera D455 are 124 × 26 × 29 mm. The novelty is equipped with a USB 3.1 Type-C connector. For operation, the camera uses the same SDK 2.0, which is used by all other models of the Intel D400 series of 3D cameras.

The cost of new items is $ 239. Intel has already begun to accept pre-orders.
