D3 Engineering Collaborates with Microsoft to Deploy Time of Flight Imaging Technology in Industrial Applications

Access to Microsoft’s Azure Depth Platform program is designed to enhance D3 Engineering’s deployment of Time of Flight imaging technology


D3 Engineering announced its collaboration with Microsoft’s Azure Depth Platform program, setup to provide access to Microsoft’s 3D Time of Flight imaging technology to a 3rd party ecosystem. This technology, developed for use in Hololens and Kinect, will allow D3 Engineering to create embedded spatial sensing systems, and deliver customized depth camera modules for camera makers and other OEMs. Further, by integrating with Microsoft’s Azure cloud-based learning and algorithm solutions, the technology can be leveraged to exponentially increase effectiveness.

D3 Engineering offers design services for customized hardware and software solutions based on various technologies, and develops production-intent sensors, cameras, and compute platforms. Per the company, sensors based on Microsoft’s Time of Flight technology, interfacing with a selection of embedded compute platforms, enables D3 Engineering to better meet the market’s need for performance-critical embedded sensing systems. 

To assist with complete systems solutions, D3 Engineering’s advantages include a U.S.-based design and engineering team as well as expertise in design and integration with Time of Flight, radar, optics, and motion control. D3 Engineering leverages its DesignCore platforms and reference designs to accelerate time-to-market while reducing the cost and risk of product development.
