Security and biometrics
Apple already demonstrated Face-based authentication. I guess this will be massively adopted everywhere. From banks to airport controls, to office or home access systems.
This technology could also aid in KYC systems, fraud prevention or speedier identity checks. An attractive field of application could also be forensics. The last one is something I thought about after the Boston bombings of 2013.
Could you stitch all the user-generated video of that day? Could you create a reliable 3D space investigators could use to analyze what happened?. Depth sensing cameras everywhere will make this a reality.
Depth sensing is also critical in several navigational domains. From Augmented Reality (AG) and Virtual Reality (VR), all the way to Autonomous Vehicles mapping necessities. Having a portable device that can enhance 3D maps could be a huge benefit for many self-driving car companies.
On top of that, layer the raising of drone-based logistics
, and it’s complicated navigational issues. Right now many systems use Lidar sensors, but it’s easy to imagine how they’ll handle depth sensors.
For example, they could be used to identify where the recipient is located and verify their identity.
