Yet another sophisticated technology to touch our lives and empower us to see what our eyes can’t. Sounds captivating, isn’t it? Well, Vayyar Imaging Ltd with expertise in 3D imaging sensor technology has made this possible with a new addition to their basket, Walabot. Vayyar develops 3D imaging sensors used in a range of applications like breast cancer screening and food safety monitoring. This time Vayyar has made a breakthrough in bringing the imaging technology to our fingertips.
Walabot is 3D imaging sensor which can see through solid objects. Not only that, it can also track movements and detect speed. We can connect the sensor to our Android smartphones and we can see on the screen what it sees.
Walabot uses radio waves to see through the solid objects or to track movements similar to a radar. It will suffice to know that walabot emits the radio waves and collects reflections of these waves to create a 3D image of the hidden object. It can also measure the distance and speed of the object by using the characteristics of radio waves. Have you ever heard of ground penetrating radars and through the wall imaging radars? These radars also function on the same principle and see beyond the human eye limits.
Walabot is a powerful tool which can convert our smartphones into 3D imaging systems and give us unprecedented power and advantage to using the radio wave technology for various day to day purposes. It can make our smartphones smarter enough to scan a wall and see pipes and wires behind on the phone’s screen. It can detect hidden leaks and can save much effort. It can be used to detect the speed of a punch in boxing too and various applications like home security monitoring, people and movement tracking and much more.
Walabot is available in three different versions, Starter Kit for $149, Maker for $299 and Pro for $599. The Starter kit has range measurement and motion detection capabilities. It offers Radar API and Breathing API using which the developers can create applications for range measurement and breathing monitoring. Maker version has spatial sensing features too and apps for people tracking and distance and depth measurement can be developed. Pro version has Imaging API and sees through walls imaging application for Android. It has a wider frequency range and offers a better 3D resolution. It can be used to develop apps for see through walls and people tracking and fall detection.
Walabot is a building platform for the developers and tech enthusiasts and equips them to build apps to harness the true potential of the sensor.
Walabot has made a sophisticated technology affordable for use in day to day applications and it is a sheer delight for the tech enthusiasts to create more as Walabot claims, “Build anything you want”.
