Project Tango: a human-scale understanding of space and motion
Over the past year, Google’s Advanced Technologies and Products group, in collaboration with universities and research labs worldwide, has been working on Project Tango, an effort to incorporate the latest research in robotics and computer vision into a unique mobile phone.
The prototype device incorporates a tracking camera and a depth sensor that takes a quarter of a million measurements per second, constructing a 3D map of the local environment, and allows the exploration of the many ways we interact with our environment and each other.
