Eonite Releases The VR Industry’s First Multi-Platform Inside-Out Positional Head Tracking Solution
“Eonite’s Vantage Head Tracker™ software delivers sub-millimeter accuracy, low latency and low power consumption for home-scale localization and dynamic obstacle detection.”
Eonite, a computer perception company delivering inside-out positional head tracking for the real world, today announced the official availability of its Eonite Vantage Head Tracker™ software. The proprietary software launches as the first multi-platform inside-out positional head tracking software to deliver sub-millimeter accuracy and extremely low latency for tethered and untethered virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) headsets. The software provides home-scale localization, does not overheat the battery, and can run on a tablet-class GPU (graphics processing unit).
“We are still in the early days of VR, and inside-out positional head tracking is a fundamental requirement in the tech stack. It’s extremely exciting to deliver Eonite Vantage Head Tracker – a powerfully accurate and fast IOPT (inside out positional tracking) software – at the exact time when the market needs it to move forward,” said Youssri Helmy, CEO and founder of Eonite. “With Eonite inside, HMDs will make VR more affordable, easier to setup, and safe for users to enjoy.”
Founded in December 2015, Eonite builds on years of work in the field of artificial perception in robotic and consumer applications by Chief Science Officer Dr. Anna Petrovskya and Chief Technology Officer 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 Dr. Petrovskya. “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 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
- Robust home-scale localization, providing mapping and tracking through multiple rooms and in a variety of light conditions to diversify use-case potential
- Multi-sensor fusion including depth and IMU (inertial measurement unit), combined with a proprietary prediction algorithm
- Integration with most PC-based head- mounted displays (HMD), with support for mobile and other devices coming soon
