Time of Flight Sensors Standard on High-End Smartphones? One German Manufacturer Envisions Such a Future
Smartphone cameras continue to improve at almost breakneck speed and one huge leap that could be in the pipeline in the near future are time-of-flight (ToF) sensors.
ToF uses infrared beams to gauge the depth and distance between the camera and the subject for each point in the image using the time it takes for the beam to bounce back to the source. It is sort of like a bat’s sonar system work instead of “seeing” with sound the ToF cameras sees using invisible to the human eye infrared light. German company Infineon Technologies believes that this feature, in particular, will help overcome many of the deficits current smartphones have in low-light scenarios.
Senior Vice President of Sensors at Infineon Philipp von Schierstaedt told publication SemiconductorforYou…
