FAST track 2 FACE REcognition Camera dominance

Objective

This proposal aims to develop the most competitive cameras for Face-Recognition, Mixed Reality and Augmented Reality for mobile phones, tablets and laptop computers. An embedded camera module, a highly competitive device aiming towards disruptive marketshare and global leaderhip.

Our device reduces by more than 50% the costs of the BOM (Bill of Material) for the camera, increases drastically the resolution of the depth map (from 40 Kpixels to 1,45 Mpixels), provides real-time-video and consumes much lower power.

Our commercial contacts with Korean, Chinese and Taiwanese manufacturers of mobile phones and tablet computers, customers for our first Depth-cameras, confirm that our disruptive 3D imaging devices will sell millions of units in the first year following initial design win(s).

According to IDC and WCP, well-known analyst firms, the number of Smart Phones, tablets and laptops forecasted for 2018 will reach 2.25 billion devices. A large percentage of the manufacturers of this combined total of 2.25 billion consumer electronic products are potential customers for us.

Our most disruptive competitive advantage is based on our algorithms (with only 1% of the computing power required by competition): we create high-quality depth-maps, 3D-content and all-in-focus images, we can process 60 fps videos under ANDROID processors while competitors need seconds to minutes to process a single frame with powerful GPUs.

We disrupt into established value-chains accelerating the development of ideas into business-driven new products targetting to bring turnovers of € 2 billion by 2022-23 to the partners of this consortium. Synergies with existing products guarantee a swift exploitation of results starting before the end of the project.
