3D depth cameras are about to make the leap from the living room to mobile devices. SoftKinetic is leading-edge provider of end-to-end solutions for 3D gesture processing. This paper will cover parallel algorithms and data structures that can dramatically accelerate depth calculation, filtering, RGB-to-depth mapping and gesture tracking algorithms on today's mobile processors. SoftKinetic will also look forward to advanced techniques which will become possible as mobile SoCs incorporate compute acceleration using CUDA and OpenCL. SoftKinetic's DepthSense cameras and iisu gesture middleware have been used in a variety of devices including PC desktops, Smart TVs, tablets and in-car infotainment platforms.
