  • Dear Technical Team,
    We are having a few questions regarding Onion Tau LIDAR Camera.

    1. Is the device capable of producing 3D point cloud and depth map for a particular object (say human face) ?

    provided that the face is aligned with camera and is at a distance ( say 50cms) from the camera

    1. Our applications include face detection and recognition. We are interested with 3D point cloud and depth map retrieval of particular human face ( covered with hard cover material). In that aspect is your onion Tau lidar camera is capable of producing the 3D point cloud and Depth Map
      Pls let me know regarding
      with regards
