Single-lens camera for 3D image recording

A company based in Luxembourg has developed a newcamera that is able to deliver distance information from every pixel ofthe image-sensor. Not only the average distance of the objects but alsothe shape of the objects under observation is easily available forfurther processing. The camera needs only one lens and only minimalcomputing power for 3D image recording. The company is looking forcommercial agreement with technical assistance in various fields ofapplication.

The camera delivers distance information directly from every pixel ofthe image-sensor. No need for 2 cameras and high-performance computing.No need for active optical shutters. Fast real-time 3D image recordingcan be achieved.
