Introducing Fingo — Mobile Hand and Head Tracking for VR / AR

uSens, a pioneer in hand-and-head tracking technologies for Augmented and Virtual Reality, has developed the next-generation of technology for its uSens Fingo module that provides advanced 3D human-computer interaction capability on PC-based VR systems as well as mobile AR and VR platforms.

At the Augmented World Expo (AWE) in Silicon Valley May 31-June 2, uSens will demonstrate its new combined inside-out 6DOF (degrees of freedom) head tracking and 26DOF hand-tracking technology. This is an industry-first achievement in that it uses only a single camera module with an embedded dual-lens (stereo) camera.

Until now, making both inside-out 6DOF head tracking and 3D hand tracking a reality has required three or even four cameras: one depth-sensing camera or two IR cameras for hand tracking, and one or two mono cameras for head tracking.

With uSens’ new technology, only one stereo camera module is needed, reducing the system size, complexity, power consumption and, as a result, overall cost.
