Range Imaging Portfolio
Time-of-flight range imaging technology allows electronic device to perceive depth and capture images in three dimensions. However, the technology remains to be widely adopted and still suffers from a number of limitations.
The University of Waikato’s Chronoptics™ research group specialises in creating novel platform-independent algorithms and solutions that will improve the quality and reduce the technical constraints of commercial range camera technologies. The Chronoptics™ group have developed the following portfolio of technologies:
- Resonant Clocking: Reduces the power consumption of sensors, offering power savings of up to 50% in an on-chip simulation.
- Mixed Pixel Restoration: Improves the quality of image captures by reducing errors and distortions caused by multi-path interference.
- Harmonic Cancellation: Removes harmonics due to linearity errors and temperature-dependent fluctuations to improve accuracy and minimise calibration requirements.
- Selective Distance Ranging: Imaging with a pre-selected depth window to avoid ambiguous measurements and multi-path interference.
- Motion Blur: Identifying and measuring moving objects with improved accuracy and precision.
- Consumer electronics
- World class expertise in 3D image acquisition and processing and intimate knowledge of the most advanced technologies in the range imaging space.
WaikatoLink is currently seeking expressions of interest in licensing or purchasing our range imaging technologies.
