Phi.3D runs on your mobile device and turns a stream of RGB-D or LIDAR data into a consistent accurate 3D model in real-time.
Phi.3D is a cross-platform technology and runs across a variety of different hardware and operating systems.
Phi.3D is sensor-agnostic. Many different sensor types, resolutions, frame-rates and noise characteristics are supported.
Back in 2011 we noticed two major technological trends:
Tablets were becoming lighter and faster and depth-sensing cameras were about to become small and mainstream.
We recognized that combining the two into a mobile unit would open up new possibilities for 3D data capture and mobile computer interfaces.
Thus the DPI-7 was conceptualized -- new software was needed that would make the two work hand-in-hand.
Because we know a lot about mobile computer vision we researched and developed a new technology from scratch that enables tablets to capture and process all the data from depth-cameras in realtime.
We call this technology Phi-3D. It lets you create 3D-models of just about anything by simply recording it with the device, very much like operating a hand-held video camera.
It is also a realtime indoor positioning system as the device pose is computed 30 times a second with superior precision. It even can recognize places that you visited before.
And it's all markerless.
Because we know from experience that sharing 3D pointclouds often meant sharing USB-sticks or hard drives we developed a scene compression technology that is optimized for wireless transfer.
We achieve compression ratios up to 50 x compared to standard formats like PTS or PTX with our technology.
