  • Patent number: 11605191
    Abstract: An audio system in a local area providing an audio signal to a headset of a remote user is presented herein. The audio system identifies sounds from a human sound source in the local area, based in part on sounds detected within the local area. The audio system generates an audio signal for presentation to a remote user within a virtual representation of the local area based in part on a location of the remote user within the virtual representation of the local area relative to a virtual representation of the human sound source within the virtual representation of the local area. The audio system provides the audio signal to a headset of the remote user, wherein the headset presents the audio signal as part of the virtual representation of the local area to the remote user.

  • Publication number: 20220028099
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a system includes at least one projector configured to project a plurality of projected patterns, where a projected lighting characteristic of each of the projected patterns varies over a time period in accordance with an associated predetermined temporal lighting-characteristic pattern, a camera configured to capture images of detected patterns during the time period, and one or more processors configured to: determine, for each detected pattern, a detected temporal lighting-characteristic pattern based on variations in a detected lighting characteristic of the detected pattern, identify a detected pattern that corresponds to one of the projected patterns by comparing at least one of the detected temporal lighting-characteristic patterns to at least one of the temporal lighting-characteristic patterns, and compute a depth associated with the detected patterns based on the one or more of the projected patterns, the detected pattern, and a relative position between the camera and the project

  • Publication number: 20220013991
    Abstract: A depth camera assembly (DCA) determines depth information for a local area. The DCA includes a camera assembly and at least one illuminator. The DCA may select a subset of the VCSELs to provide illumination at any given time. The illuminator may comprise near-field VCSELs configured to generate a structured light (SL) pattern for depth sensing in the near-field and far-field VCSELs configured to generate a SL pattern for depth sensing in the far-field. The near-field VCSELs may comprise a linear emission region which is shorter than a linear emission region of the far-field VCSELs. The DCA may generate and phase shift a quasi-sinusoidal SL pattern. The DCA may phase shift the quasi-sinusoidal SL pattern by alternating which traces on the illuminator are active.

  • Publication number: 20210366142
    Abstract: A depth camera assembly (DCA) determines depth information for a local area. The DCA includes a plurality of cameras and at least one illuminator. The DCA dynamically determines depth sensing modes (e.g., passive stereo, active stereo, structured stereo) based in part on the surrounding environment and/or user activity. The DCA uses the depth information to update a depth model describing the local area. The DCA may determine that a portion of the depth information associated with some of portion of the local area is not accurate. The DCA may then select a different depth sensing mode for the portion of the local area and update the depth model with the additional depth information. In some embodiments, the DCA may update the depth model by utilizing a machine learning model to generate a refined depth model.

  • Patent number: 10877622
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a computing system may access a first image and a second image of at least a common portion of an environment while a light emission with a predetermined emission pattern is projected by a projector. The first and second images are respectively captured by a first and a second detector that are respectively separated from the projector by a first and a second distance. The system may determine that a first portion of the first image corresponds to a second portion of the second image. The system may compute, using triangulation, a first depth value associated with the first portion and a second depth value associated with the second portion. The system may determine that the first and second depth values match in accordance with one or more predetermined criteria, and generate a depth map of the environment based on at least one of the depth values.
