The new Intel RealSense Tracking Camera T265 was designed for applications such as robotics, drones, and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR). This US$199 piece of hardware uses proprietary visual inertial odometry simultaneous localization and mapping, can be already pre-ordered, and shipments will begin at the end of February.

Intel's new RealSense camera is not the successor of the currently available solutions from this family of products, but a complementary solution designed to work alongside the RealSense Depth Cameras. Intel describes the RealSense Tracking Camera T265 as "a new class of stand-alone inside-out tracking device that will provide developers with a powerful building block for autonomous devices, delivering high-performance guidance and navigation."

Thanks to the proprietary visual inertial odometry simultaneous localization and mapping (V-SLAM) technology, the new solution can be used for applications that require accurate, low-latency tracking, such as robotics, drones, virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR). The Intel RealSense Tracking Camera T265 is powered by the Movidius Myriad 2 VPU and delivers 6-degrees-of-freedom (6DoF) inside-out tracking by gathering inputs from two onboard fish-eye cameras, each with an approximate 170-degree range of view.

Combined with the RealSense D400 series cameras, the T265 can be used for advanced applications like occupancy mapping, advanced navigation and collision avoidance in GPS-restricted environments, improved 3D scanning, and more.

Those interested can pre-order the Intel RealSense Tracking Camera T265 for US$199 already. Shipments are expected to begin in early March.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
