Smartphone (Sensing)


Useful and fun smartphone applications are made possible by integrating state-of-the-art sensing technology, such as the back-illuminated Time of Flight (ToF) image sensors, and Sony Semiconductor Solutions Corporation’s imaging technology backed up by years of expertise. With photo assistance such as the background blurring effect, AR-enabled games, and a new mode of communication using spatial expressions, the sensor can create a whole new experience.
