Today, Intel announced the Intel RealSense lidar camera L515, the world's smallest and most power-efficient, high-resolution lidar that captures millions of depth points per second. Designed with proprietary technology that creates entirely new ways to incorporate lidar into smart devices to perceive the world in 3D, the L515 provides high-quality performance and millimeter accuracy to products that require vision capabilities.

"Intel RealSense technology is used to develop products that enrich people's lives by enabling machines and devices to perceive the world in 3D. With the L515 depth camera, we are excited to bring high-resolution lidar performance to markets previously inaccessible to this technology."
-Sagi BenMoshe, corporate vice president, Intel RealSense Group


Intel RealSense technology depth experts have developed a revolutionary solid-state lidar for a new family of high-quality depth cameras. The Intel RealSense lidar camera L515's unparalleled depth quality and low power consumption, combined with its ability to generate 23 million accurate depth points per second, makes it perfect for a wide variety of applications.

The logistics industry is one market that can benefit from the L515's high resolution and full scene perception. Companies looking for inventory management automation will benefit from precise volumetric measurement of products, enabling an accurate state of inventory at all times. Many other applications for the L515 can be found in 3D scanning, healthcare, retail, robotics and more.

Light detection and ranging (lidar) is a remote-sensing technology that measures the distance to objects and targets using a combination of laser light and receivers. The difference with Intel RealSense lidar technology is that it uses an advanced, miniaturized micro-electro-mechanical system mirror to scan the scene. This method enables the reduction of the laser pulse power, achieving the world's smallest, most power-efficient, high-resolution lidar.
With regards to accuracy and depth edge fidelity, the L515 is in a class of its own, providing consistently high accuracy over the supported range of 0.25 m - 9 m. It also provides over 23 million accurate depth pixels per second, with a depth resolution of 1024 x 768 at 30 frames per second. The Intel RealSense lidar camera L515 has an internal vision processor, motion blur artifact reduction and short photon-to-depth latency. The lightweight L515 consumes less than 3.5 watts of power, enabling easy mounting on handheld devices with the flexibility of long battery life. Always ready to use, the L515 retains its depth accuracy throughout its lifespan without the need for calibration.

The camera also features an accelerometer, gyroscope and FHD RGB video camera. It uses the same open source Intel RealSense SDK 2.0 as the entire portfolio of Intel RealSense devices.

The Intel RealSense lidar camera L515 is priced at $349 and available for pre-order today. For more details, visit the Intel RealSense website.

I don't understand what this site is about anymore.
@AleksandarK would it be possible to give the reason for posting news about laser rangefinders?

Sure, it's made by Intel, but what if they started selling vacuum cleaners or insurance?

Just because it is of no personal interest to you it doesn't mean others feel the same. I post news on everything "compute", meaning that if Intel launches a vacuum cleaner with interesting tech inside, it will get coverage. ;)

Aren't you going overboard? We have chair reviews here...

This thing sits very properly within this site philosophy.

Yeah, but there's so much tech TPU doesn't cover (yet!). Drillers? Cars? Bridges? Is this coming as well?

And yeah, if "tech" not "gaming", then what about gaming chair reviews? :)
Will you review an IKEA chair if they send you one? :)

This is a glorified tape measure.
Seriously, I don't understand why this doesn't bother anyone else.

I was just about to say this.

You really are missing the context here, it's Intel... not Craftsman drills...

It is not. It opens up serious opportunities and gesture interactions with the PC and robotics field also this thing has a SDK, it eases up things a lot.

Still pricy; but I can already see this becoming a home feature; for those who want to find the perfect bra size, shirt fit, pants size, and so forth. Intel even advertises such a use (for an older model). Just scan your nude self in and hope there isn't a security flaw that results in your model becoming public access.

It would actually pair well with those "customized to your body" fashion sites as well as those "Smart Mirrors" that are used for workouts or virtual shopping.

And you are a glorified ugly bag of mostly water. (Not an insult, an actual quote). This technology has very many uses for both consumers and companies. A similar device might already be used in a way that lets you get your precious and, by contrast, of very little practical use, consumer thingies faster and/or cheaper by being used to optimize stocking volume and speeding up logistics.
