“Your profession is not what brings home your weekly paycheck, your profession is what you’re put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling.”

– Vincent van Gogh

Prelude

We are experts in using 3D depth sensor technologies, developing innovative 3D computer vision implementations, and processor optimization for mobile devices.

 

What we achieved together

Today we are one of the world’s leading computer vision teams. Together we developed some of the most advanced algorithms for SLAM, object recognition, 3D reconstruction, dynamic fusion, and photogrammetry.

Opportunity

Over the last five years we’ve worked hard to solve many of the problems faced by the first generation of augmented reality systems. AR is expected to have a significant business impact across a host of industries including manufacturing, architecture, logistics, healthcare, education, engineering, agriculture, military, and services. VanGogh is enabling OEMs, developers, and end users to create the next generation of AR experiences.

Challenge

The introduction of a variety of affordable 3D sensors has greatly improved the hardware landscape. However, software has been lagging. Complex algorithmic problems in object & scene recognition, capture, tracking, SLAM, and related performance issues still need to be solved in order for augmented reality to become mainstream. We’re now working on combining our advanced computer vision technology with deep learning (CNN) to develop the most efficient and reliable solution in the industry.
