On November 16, 2022, the “OFweek 2022 (the 7th) AI Industry Conference” and the “Vico Cup · AI Industry Annual Selection and Award Ceremony” were held in Shenzhen. The entry project “Off-screen 3D Structured Light Technology” of Shenzhen Photovision Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Photovision Technology”) won the “Vico Cup · OFweek 2022 AI Industry Technology Breakthrough Award”! The award was personally presented by Pan Yi, Dean of the School of Computer Science and Control Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shenzhen University of Technology.
This is highly recognized and commended by the Chinese Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and other industry institutions, as well as the industry and consumers.
The Vico Cup · OFweek 2022 IOT&AI Awards 2022 is hosted by the high-tech industry portal OFweek Vico and hosted by OFweek IOT and OFweek AI. The event has attracted wide attention from the industry with its fair and objective selection process, and has become one of the most professional, influential and representative industry awards in the high-tech field! This selection was reviewed and voted by more than 20 major associations, societies, scientific research institutions, experts and scholars from AI.
As an important driving force for the new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation, artificial intelligence will become one of the important technical guarantees and core driving forces to promote high-quality economic development, build an innovative country, and realize new industrialization, informatization, urbanization and agricultural modernization during the “Fourteenth Five-Year Plan” period. An efficient 3D face recognition system and the pursuit of a comprehensive screen have formed a sharp contradiction. In order to solve the important needs of users, the progress of off-screen 3D technology of optical discrimination technology has helped users achieve product optimization.
It is reported that Optical Vision Technology was founded in 2018 and headquartered in Shenzhen. It is a high-tech company focusing on 3D visual technology research and development. Optical discrimination technology is the first to apply nano-optics technology to the field of 3D vision, and combine with artificial intelligence algorithms to realize a full-stack 3D vision solution with independent intellectual property rights. At present, it has been applied in many fields, and has excellent mass production supply and actual landing capacity.
Break Apple’s technical barriers
It is understood that the optical discrimination technology uses the edge emitting laser (EEL) as the light source and projects tens of thousands of light spots based on the nano-photon chip to identify. It is the only 3D structured light solution that does not rely on Apple patents and has independent intellectual property rights. Through self-developed nano-photon chip and soft core depth algorithm, optical discrimination technology has broken Apple’s technical barriers and realized the only off-screen 3D face recognition technology that can be applied to rigid and flexible OLED screens at present.
More importantly, all the hardware of the scheme can be mass produced domestically, thus breaking through the dual monopoly of Apple’s intellectual property rights and supply chain, which has high technical value and social significance.
At the same time, the scheme has the characteristics of better working efficiency and overall power consumption, more tolerant working temperature, large-scale mass production based on the domestic chip industry chain, low cost and no fear of patent risk.
Empowered 3D vision technology with wide application fields
Photovision Technology pioneered the application of nano-optics technology in the field of 3D vision, and combined with artificial intelligence algorithms to achieve a full-stack 3D vision solution with fully independent intellectual property rights. This scheme has the advantages of high precision, low cost and mature supply chain, enabling 3D vision technology to be applied in various fields on a large scale, and playing an important role in the process of 3D popularization under the screen, promoting 3D vision to create greater value.
In March 2021, Photovision Technology will launch a rigid off-screen 3D prototype, and in May 2022, it will launch a flexible off-screen 3D prototype.
In the field of smart phones, optical discrimination technology has successfully realized the world’s first off-screen 3D structured light scheme, which is also the only off-screen 3D scheme currently being promoted to mass production in Android mobile phones.
The face payment scenario in the field of intelligent retail has been successfully applied to Tencent’s face payment products.
In the field of intelligent robots, the ToF module of optical discrimination technology has many advantages, such as low cost, high accuracy, strong anti-interference ability, and provides 3D vision solutions for many intelligent robots.
