    How to use SR300 in windows platform wirelessly

    Wesong

      Is there any way to use SR300 Camera without USB wire? We put SR300 on a werable device,but the USB wire is not convenient extremely.

      Thank you.

          You would have to use the caseless camera module version of the SR300 that is suitable for integration into devices.  It can be ordered from Intel Approved Distributor companies such as Mouser.

          Please bear in mind that the SR300 is about to be retired, so you may not be able to obtain stocks of this board in future.  So you should purchase stocks of the board now before they run out.

           

          I would expect that the new D415 camera will become the natural replacement for the SR300.  There will likely be caseless versions of it purchasable from Intel Approved Distributors, since previous RealSense models had bare boards available.

            When I provided an answer for your question, my assumption was that the camera and a computing board that would process the camera data would all be integrated into the wearable device.  Is this the case?

             

            I say this because if your project aims to transmit data wirelessly over the air to an external device that is not physically connected to the camera (such as a laptop) then this would not be practical to achieve.  This is because of the huge amount of data that a RealSense camera's USB cable carries.

              Hello Wesong,

              Thank you for contacting Intel® RealSense™ Technology support. 

              For future references, your ticket number is 03077687. Please keep this number handy in case you are asked for it.

              The Intel® RealSense™ cameras will not work well over wireless connections. This, based on the fact that the bandwidth requirements are huge. That is why they require a USB 3.0 connection (using the original cable provided by Intel®) to the host platform in order to be able to function properly.

              I hope you find this information helpful.

              Do not hesitate to contact us again if you need further assistance.

              Best regards.
