Nanophotonic Coherent Imagers Are Super-accurate 3D Cameras

Is super accurate 3D scanning from a smartphone possible? It may be sson if this chip becomes mainstream...

Using an inexpensive silicon chip less than a millimeter square in size, the NCI (Nanophotonic Coherent Imager) provides the highest depth-measurement accuracy of any such nanophotonic 3-D imaging device. The work, done in the laboratory of Ali Hajimiri, the Thomas G. Myers Professor of Electrical Engineering in the Division of Engineering and Applied Science, is described in the February 2015 issue of Optics Express.

3D Digital Glasses for Visually Impaired People

The DigiGlasses project aims to help this group of visually impaired people by providing them with a glasses like digital tool to convert the real view of the environment to a sharper, more focused picture by increasing contrast and using edge detection.

The plan is to develop a pair of digital stereoscopic "glasses" working with a camera chip, a signal processing unit and a small LCD or LED screen. The captured picture will be analyzed and processed based on the necessary corrections. One of the planned corrections is contrast increasing and edge detection which will help the visually impaired recognize the different objects in their surroundings.
