Technology

+ - Sub-centimeter positioning coming to mobile phones->

Submitted by Oooskar
Oooskar (806935) writes "SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping), a technique invented by NASA, defines the concept of building a 3D-map of the environment and simultaneously computing the position within it. Based on SLAM, Swedish startup 13th Lab has implemented real-time sub-centimeter local 3D-positioning by using only the sensors, most importantly the camera, already present in most mobile devices (demo video). The technology will be made available as a software platform for developers (sign up for beta).

A first application demonstrating the technology has just been released for the iPad2. The technology should be available on other devices with similar computational power soon."

+ - Swedish startup brings NASA tech to mobile devices->

Submitted by Oooskar
Oooskar (806935) writes "GigaOM writes about a Swedish startup, 13th Lab, that has implemented a complex computer vision technique known as SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) on consumer mobile devices. SLAM is a system developed in part by NASA for use in robotics, which allows an object (like, say, a drone) to look around, in real-time build up a 3D map of the environment and then understand where it is (video).
13th Lab aims make this technology available as a platform for developers to use. A first application on this platform, Ball Invasion, is available for the iPad2 (video)."
