|LETTER FROM THE EDITOR|
On Wednesday, February 19 at 8 am PT, leading market analyst firm Yole Développement will deliver the free webinar “3D Imaging and Sensing: From Enhanced Photography to an Enabling Technology for AR and VR” in partnership with the Embedded Vision Alliance. In 2017, Apple brought an innovative use case to mobile devices: a structured light-based 3D sensing camera module that enables users to rapidly and reliably unlock their devices using only their faces. Android-based mobile device manufacturers have added front depth sensors to their products in response, and are now also adding rear-mounted depth sensors. So far, at least, the applications of these rear-mounted depth sensors are predominantly photography-related. In the near future, however, they’re expected to further expand into augmented reality, virtual reality and other applications. In this webinar, Yole Développement will describe the application roadmap, market value and cost of those highly anticipated mobile 3D sensing modules, including topics such as CMOS image sensors, optical elements and VCSEL illumination.
