The Intel® RealSense™ Developer Kit featuring the ZR300 (ZR300 developer kit) includes a high resolution depth camera integrated with a robust motion tracking module.  The ZR300 developer kit has a USB 3.0 interface, which enables developers to quickly start prototyping and build applications for embedded or robotic platforms.  Key capabilities include high resolution depth sensing, highly robust tracking, long range support, indoor and outdoor use, and low power.   The ZR300 developer kit comprises of a stereoscopic camera, infrared projector, imaging ASIC, RGB camera, and tracking module.

Intel recommends the Intel® Joule™ 570x Developer Kit for use with the ZR300 (

Intel also recommends the following thermal solution for use with the Intel ZR300 Dev Kit and Joule board: (Note: An active cooling solution is required to use the camera)

The Intel® RealSense™ System Developer Kit (SDK) for Linux provides a development platform to create the next generation of natural, immersive, and intuitive software applications.  The SDK is a collection of software libraries providing the ability to build rich sensory capabilities for robots and other devices. These libraries aim to lower the barriers for using these capabilities and shift the application developers’ focus from coding the algorithm details to innovating on the usage of these capabilities for next generation human-device experience.

  • Person Library: Programming for person detection and tracking, body gesture recognition, localization and posture analysis
  • SLAM Library: Programming support for determining robot pose, recognize it’s position in an environment, simultaneously with building a map of it’s surrounding, 6 degrees of freedom (6DoF) tracking with re-localization, dense reconstruction, and occupancy map creation.
  • Object Library: Programming for single and multi-object detection, recognition, localization and tracking
