Tango For ROS

For developers who want to write robotic applications on the Android platform, or who want to extend their robot with new sensors for indoor positioning and 3D perception, Intermodalics created the ROS Streamer App for Tango.

This Android app for Tango compatible devices provides real-time 3D pose estimates using Tango’s visual-inertial odometry (VIO) algorithms, camera images and point clouds into the ROS ecosystem. The app and code are freely available for download in the Play Store and Github. More information can be found on the ROS wiki page.

Intermodalics is committed to maintain and improve the app, so stay tuned for new features and improvements. As an open source project we invite you to propose or contribute new features as well.

Future updates will contain even more Tango features such as area learning (SLAM) and 3D reconstruction.

Augmented Reality and Tango

Intermodalics takes Android Augmented Reality (AR) games to the next level with Project Tango. Check out this awesome demo video!

Intermodalics working with the Project Tango team.

A smartphone or tablet that can navigate you through a shopping centre. A device that shows you how a new piece of furniture will look like in your own living room. This is what will be possible with Google's new Android devices, currently being developed by the Project Tango team. Thanks to its expertise in computer vision and navigation, Intermodalics is working with the Project Tango team to develop new tools and applications for these devices.
Project Tango is a platform that uses computer vision to give devices the ability to understand their position relative to the world around them. The Project Tango Tablet Development Kit is an Android device with a wide-angle camera, a depth sensing camera, accurate sensor timestamping, and a software stack that exposes motion tracking, area learning and depth sensing to application developers. Thousands of developers have purchased these developer kits to create experiences to explore physical space around the user, including precise navigation without GPS, windows into virtual 3D worlds, measurement and scanning of spaces, and games that know where they are in the room,and what’s around them.
