PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Eonite, a computer vision company delivering inside-out positional tracking for the real world, today announced the official availability of its Eonite Vantage Head Tracker™ software. Eonite delivers the first multi-platform software with sub-millimeter accuracy and extremely low latency, while running on a tablet-class GPU (graphics processing unit). Eonite democratizes virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) by delivering inside-out positional tracking for any tethered and untethered headsets, mobile devices, robots, drones and other form factors.
"With Eonite inside, virtual reality can become more affordable, easier to setup, and more immersive for users. Our 6DOF (degrees of freedom) software is leading the industry in all five key commercialization areas - accuracy, latency, robustness, power efficiency and price," said Youssri Helmy, CEO and founder of Eonite. "Eonite Vantage Head Tracker is a fundamental requirement in the tech stack, and will be an industry-defining solution for VR/AR headsets to accurately operate in the real world."
Founded in December 2015, Eonite builds on years of work in the field of artificial perception in robotic and consumer applications by founders Dr. Anna Petrovskaya and Peter Varvak.
"When I began working on computer perception in 2004 with Peter, we recognized it would impact a wide range of artificial intelligence industries and enable tremendous growth in consumer experiences," said Anna. "Eonite enables the fourth wave of computing - spatial interfaces like VR/AR/MR - to gain widespread adoption. Computers perceiving the real world like the human eye - that's what it takes for these experiences to feel 'real' enough for common usage, and that's the impact we're enabling at Eonite."
Eonite Vantage Head Tracker software delivers 6DOF with sub-millimeter accuracy, extremely low latency (motion-to-photon in less than 15 milliseconds) and low power consumption.
Other features and benefits include:
- Real-time obstacle detection (both static and dynamic) to increase safety and enhance the immersive experience
- Uses one commodity depth sensor and standard processors built into the headset, which cuts down on hardware costs and simplifies the system setup
- Supports mapping and tracking through multiple rooms - localization in entire furnished homes vs. clearing a space
- Works in a variety of indoor lighting conditions to support real-world use cases
- Sensor fusion including depth and IMU (inertial measurement unit)
- Support for PC-based head-mounted displays (HMD), with support for mobile and other devices coming soon
The Eonite Vantage Head Tracker comes in addition to the Eonite Reality Insight™ Software Development Kit (SDK) and Unity plugin, which the company currently offers to select strategic partners. The SDK includes home-scale, real-time 3D scanning and reconstruction supporting persistent virtual content, occlusions and shadows. Eonite Reality Insight enables developers to create life-like mixed reality applications, and to use 3D simultaneous localization and mapping (3D SLAM) and high precision navigation for a variety of markets such as automotive, robotics and manufacturing.
Eonite is a computer vision company on a mission to help computers perceive the real world. Eonite Vantage Head Tracker™, the company's proprietary inside-out positional tracking software, delivers sub-millimeter accuracy, low latency and low power consumption. The software enables a whole new level of immersive virtual reality/ augmented reality/ mixed reality content and experiences. It's also applicable for autonomous robots, drones and other areas of artificial intelligence.
Founded in 2015 and located in Palo Alto, CA, Eonite has raised $5.25 million in seed funding from leading Silicon Valley venture capitalists and angels including Lightspeed Venture Partners, Signia Venture Partners, Presence Capital, The VR Fund, Rising Tide and CLI Ventures.
