Hexagon, Sony Semiconductor Solutions Partner on Reality Capture

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Digital reality solutions provider Hexagon AB partnered with image sensor developer Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corp. Hexagon aims to advance its reality capture solutions by integrating Sony’s time-of-flight (ToF) image sensor and software to enhance speed and accuracy.

Hexagon will integrate Sony’s capabilities into the development of the new Leica BLK2GO PULSE product, which the company plans to release in 2024. The hand-held reality capture device fuses ToF technology from Sony and Hexagon’s GrandSLAM technology — which itself combines lidar and visual simultaneous localization and mapping with an inertial measurement unit — to create a first-person scanning method to capture only the needed target from the user’s point of view. The BLK2GO PULSE will be primarily used for short-range indoor applications with instant point cloud visualization during capture.

The successive analysis or synthesizing of the light values or other similar characteristics of the components of a picture area, following a given method.
time of flight
(TOF) The length of time needed for a signal to arrive at and be reflected from the target. The basis of an active autoranging/autofocus system.
An acronym of light detection and ranging, describing systems that use a light beam in place of conventional microwave beams for atmospheric monitoring, tracking and detection functions. Ladar, an acronym of laser detection and ranging, uses laser light for detection of speed, altitude, direction and range; it is often called laser radar.
The processes in which luminous energy incident on the eye is perceived and evaluated.
