Vivo’s TOF 3D Sensing Technology Showcased to Overtake Apple’s Face ID

Vivo’s TOF 3D Sensing Technology Showcased

The largest and biggest mobile event in Asia, the MWC Shanghai will run from 27 to 29 June 2018. The mobile industry worldwide comes together to discover new and exciting products and technology. Vivo is one of the emerging smartphone companies to take over the market with its unique products. The company on Wednesday showcased its new Time Of Flight (TOF) 3D Sensing Technology, which is claimed to capture 300,000 sensor points. This number is 10 times the number used in the Face ID Structured Light Sensor Technology by Apple on their iPhone X.

The company claims that the high-resolution depth sensor will be able to detect objects that are as far as 3 meters away. Alex Feng, Senior Vice President of Vivo said, “From last year’s debut of In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, the recent launch of the truly bezel-less Vivo NEX, to our ground-breaking TOF 3D Sensing technology, we continue to forge ahead and evolve towards the truly intelligent future by opening new ways for the AI to help the consumer.

Vivo aims to provide new opportunities in gesture, motion and facial recognition, 3D photography and Augmented Reality technologies to increase the abilities of future generations of devices. The TOF 3D Sensing Technology can be easily embedded in a smartphone due to its simpler and smaller architecture. This tech is accurate in tracking movements of the body that allow users a completely new way to communicate with the world. The hardware sends out a light pulse and calculates the time of flight for light to hit back the sensor. This hardware is mounted next to the front-facing camera sensor(s).

Use of AI with the TOF 3D Sensing Technology will allow users more flexibility in 3D Modeling and recreation of entire objects digitally. Vivo believes that this will come useful for medical purposes for scanning. Vivo has been leading in the bezel-less smartphone game and aims to further expand its reach to another tech. There has been no official announcement as to when this technology will be available and what future devices will don it.
