Matterport 3-D Imaging with Japjit Tulsi

Matterport is a company that builds 3-D imaging for the inside of buildings, construction sites, and other locations that require a “digital twin.” Generating digital images of the insides of buildings has a broad spectrum of applications, and there are considerable engineering challenges in building such a system.

Matterport’s hardware stack involves a camera built in-house by the company. The camera can take 360 degree scans of a room, stitch the imagery together, and make the digital twin available on the cloud.

Japjit Tulsi works at Matterport, and he joins the show to discuss 3-D imaging, and his role as CTO of the company.
