For Magic Leap 2, Infineon and Pmdtechnologies Have Developed 3d Depth-sensing Technology

pmdtechnologies | May 31, 2022

Augmented reality (AR) applications are on the verge of revolutionizing how we live and work. Magic Leap, the AR pioneer, is set to unveil its newest AR device, the Magic Leap 2, later this year. The Magic Leap 2 will be one of the most immersive enterprise AR headsets on the market, having been designed exclusively for business use. Thanks to industry-leading optics and fast computers in an ergonomic form, Magic Leap 2 will enable operators to operate more efficiently, help firms streamline complicated processes, and allow staff to effortlessly communicate. One of the most important parts of Magic Leap 2 is the 3D indirect-Time-of-Flight (iToF) depth sensing technology, which was made by Infineon Technologies AG and pmdtechnologies ag. Magic Leap 2 features the REAL3TM 3D Image Sensor. The IRS2877C Time-of-Flight imager records the physical environment surrounding the user, allowing the gadget to understand and interact with it. The VGA resolution of the 3D imager makes it possible to find many different things in great detail. Infineon and pmd's Time-of-Flight technology generate a precise 3D mapping of the environment as well as a 3D image of faces, hand details, or objects in real-time. With this breakthrough, the Magic Leap 2 will be able to interact with its surroundings more accurately. In addition, the sensor allows Magic Leap 2 users to use better gesture controls. The 3D sensor was enhanced by Infineon and pmd to reduce power consumption, reduce heat, and extend the battery life of the Magic Leap 2. “Sensing the environment precisely and in real-time is key for augmented reality applications. Magic Leap 2 will provide an even more immersive user experience. These superior functionalities will help to connect the physical and digital world even more seamlessly.” Magic Leap CTO, Julie Green “We have introduced our 3D imager technology in a professional environment, where precision and reliability are life-saving features,” said Andreas Urschitz, Division President Power & Sensor Systems and designated CMO at Infineon. New augmented and mixed reality applications for healthcare and industry will be enabled by the latest 3D time-of-flight technologies. It is about to drastically alter the way we live and work.

UiPath (NYSE: PATH), a leading enterprise automation software company, today announced its inaugural CIO Automation Council comprised of pioneering and innovative CIOs from across industries. Together with leaders from UiPath, the CIO Automation Council endeavors to accelerate automation maturity through sharing best practices; identify new business objectives and market needs for automation; and establish industry benchmarks and provide input to guide industry regulation. The Council is part of UiPath’s broader focus around the CIO, including a CIO Industry Practice dedicated to delivering value to CIOs through education, networking, and thought leadership. “The CIO Automation Council is designed to deepen relationships that help propel the automation industry and strengthen the CIO’s influence both within and outside their organization, The CIO Council members are visionary leaders who will contribute tremendous insights that will directly benefit their peers.

CIOs are critical decision makers on enterprise solutions and are responsible for maximizing return on technology investments. While CIOs pursue digital modernization, reducing technical debt, and enhancing IT governance and security, they are also facing macroeconomic conditions such as inflation, supply chain disruption, and labor shortages that add difficulty to their roles. In fact, a recent UiPath survey of business executives revealed 78% are very or somewhat likely to invest more in automation to offset the impact of the labor shortage. In addition, a report by IDC predicts that by next year, 60% of CIOs will be primarily measured for their ability to co-create new business models and outcomes through extensive enterprise and ecosystem-wide collaboration. Among the topics the CIO Automation Council will seek to address are expanding and strengthening citizen development and communicating with workers to identify new automations; improving the employee experience through automation to retain talent and attract new talent; and understanding how low code and AI capabilities can take on more advanced use cases with high business impact.
