    Any futrher clarity on future annouced Realsense products?

      Intel Announces Tools for RealSense Technology Development | Intel Newsroom

       

      I know you don’t want to give dates, but can you give some high level details?

       

      Is the Intel® RealSense ZR300 the linux version of the SR300 or something different? 

       

      Is the RealSense Camera 400 an upgrade to the R200 line or something different?

       

      Does  Intel® Euclid™ Developer Kit  use a R200 or a SR300 or something new? Is it  a close proximity device or have a longer range?

          I do not work for Intel but I am somewhat of a Googling wizard, so I will try to assemble together some further details / speculation for you.

           

          *  Here's a link to a deeply detailed Intel PDF presentation about Euclid, which states on page 12 of the presentation that it uses a ZR-300.  googling for 'realsense euclid zr-300' backs this up from multiple sources.

           

          http://roscon.ros.org/2016/presentations/ROSCon2016_Intel_RealSense.pdf

           

          *  Here's information about the ZR-300 from another Intel PDF presentation.

           

          "The Intel RealSense Camera ZR300 integrates a depth camera for computing high-density depth (>10 million points per second) and a wide-field-of-view camera (VGA with >160-degree FOV) with a high-precision accelerometer-gyroscope combination for motion and feature tracking.  Rounding out the six camera sensors on the device are an 8MP rear RGB camera and a 2MP front-facing RGB camera".

           

          "The Intel RealSense Camera ZR300 provides high-quality and high-density depth data at VGA-resolution of 60 frames per second, making it versatile for applications in augmented and virtual reality, robotics, drones and other usages. Its low power consumption also makes it an ideal depth camera for various mobile form factors where battery life is always a consideration".

           

          Its targeted use for drones suggests a vision range more like the mobile R200 than the desktop SR-300.

           

          *  Given that the R400 seems destined for use in the final version of the Project Alloy mixed reality headset in Q4 2017 as a replacement for the ZR-300 currently used in the reference design, this suggests that its capabilities are at least on par with those of the ZR-300, and likely superior to it once newly acquired vision technology such as that from Intel's purchase of the company Movidius is integrated.  It is said that the R400 will have much greater capabilities than the current range of cameras, and be something that is truly next-generation.
