Google announced that it has launched Project Tango, in which, based on a prototype Android phone with 3D sensors will provide software developers. Using sensors, the phone not only tracks the movement but can create a visual map using three-dimensional scanning, reports Techcrunch, quoted by “Focus”.

The company believes that the combination of these sensors with computer vision technology will open the door for the development of navigation indoors, video games and many other applications. Google allows developers to register for access to phones, initially will be selected limited group of 200 specialists.

“Project Tango aims to give mobile devices like the human understanding of space and movement with the most advanced sensors and computer vision,” says John Lee of the Department of Google, which is developing the technology.

Phone with a 5- inch display of Project Tango is equipped with a compass and gyroscope, like any other phone, but in addition has a visual sensors that can scan space. At the heart of the prototype processor Myriad is one produced by a startup Movdius. What makes this revolutionary chip is its power, combined with the use of much less energy. Most 3D systems like Kinect at Microsoft, using a lot of energy, making them unsuitable for mobile devices whose batteries have sufficient capacity.

The integration of three-dimensional sensor in the smart phone was impossible until now precisely because the power failure. Processor Movidius however, may provide a solution.

Google notes that the technology is at an early stage of development and there is still a lot of work.
