Heptagon Introduces a new Stereoscopic Illuminator for Industrial Vision
Heptagon (Singapore and Santa Clara, CA,USA) introduces BELICE, a stereoscopy illumination platform including a suite of advanced algorithms and software solutions to enable very cost-efficient and high-quality 3D vision for AR helmets and other applications.
Used in AR Helmet from DAQRI
“DAQRI Smart Helmet is a visionary tool for the 21st century worker. As a leader in augmented reality, we opted to utilize Heptagon’s advanced infrared dot-pattern illumination solution to power our 3D camera,” says Roy Ashok, Chief Product Officer at DAQRI. “Heptagon’s illumination technology is enabling 3D vision in a very compelling fashion.”
BELICE also includes a proprietary package encapsulating the lens on the side, providing an extra security layer for eye safety and suppressing stray light sideways. The module is compatible with state-of-the-art assembly processes and is reflow solder compatible. It features a compact package size with reduced z-height, which can be thermally mounted directly onto the chuck, and is ideal for use in mobile devices for both indoor and outdoor use. BELICE achieves its high optical efficiency by maximizing thermal conductivity for optimal heat management.
