Wednesday 22 January 2020 11:06 CET | News

Infineon has developed 3D depth sensors for biometric facial authentication and photo capabilities on smart devices.

The company developed these sensors in partnership with PMD Technologies, and it had teamed up with Idemia and PMD Technologies in February 2019. Infineon’s solution, called REAL 3, is a single chip, with a size of 4.4 x 5.1 mm, and it’s a fifth-generation time-of-flight deep sensor which can be embedded in any device irrespective of its size. It delivers high resolution data and low power consumption, and its aim is to help make human-machine interaction context-based and touchless by facilitating gesture control.

REAL 3 sets up authentic 3D images of faces, hand details or objects that can be easily matched to the original, Tires and Parts reports. It can be implemented in payment transactions conducted through facial recognition on smart devices, and it can also provide a 3D image used for phone unlocking.
