Maintaining social distance is something that is truly relevant to this day, as the new type of coronavirus continues to have a noticeable impact on our society. However, for people with certain vision problems, it becomes much more difficult to cope with control over such distance, and therefore Apple today notified the public and its fans that it is adding a new feature to its iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max called People Detection. As its name implies, it allows you to warn the user in time with a certain sound signal about being too close to people.
This technology is basically based on the use of the well-known and already practically familiar LiDAR technology, which in real time can build virtual maps of spaces and calculate a fairly accurate distance from one object to another – in particular, it is worth noting the fact that the iPhone 12 The Pro will be the first device to integrate the latest version of this technology.
Moreover, this People Detection feature uses a special technology platform called ARKit PD, specially designed to improve the performance of this feature. This became a necessary step, since LiDAR itself does not know how to separate living objects from non-living ones, considering them all as a kind of one class of objects in a specific given space. Of course, for now, it only remains to hope that Apple will be able to present a really good level of optimization and various interesting points regarding this set of logic.
On the other hand, in the new iPhone 12, you can expect the presence of some other interesting points, and technologies that will certainly appear in an excellent light, taking into account all the previous developments of Apple. It is worth noting that earlier Apple focused on using purely its proprietary technologies and approaches, but now, apparently, it is looking at the opportunity to create something truly unique and multifunctional, using, among other things, developments from third-party developers.
