Abstract / Description: 

This talk will provide an overview of the technology and capabilities of Intel's RealSense Stereo and Lidar Depth Cameras, and will then progress to describe new features, such as high-speed capture, multi-camera enhancements, optical filtering, and near-range high-resolution depth imaging. Finally, we will introduce a new fast on-chip calibration method that can be used to improve the performance of a stereo camera and help mitigate some common stereo artifacts.


Anders Grunnet-Jepsen is the CTO of the Intel RealSense Group, where he works on stereo- and lidar- depth cameras. He was founder of ThinkOptics which licensed its optical tracking technology to Nintendo for the Wii. He was acting CTO of an optical communications start-up, Templex Technology, when it was acquired by Intel in 2001. Anders received his Ph.D from Oxford University, and a Masters in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark, and has worked at the University of California San Diego; Thomson CSF, France; and NKT Research Center, Denmark. He has a passion for all things optical.
