Ahead of its Thursday FQ3 report, OmniVision (OVTI) states it's working with Google to develop the recently-announced Project Tango's 3D vision capabilities.

Tango aims to enable Android phones that can track motion and create 3D maps of their surroundings. Potential applications including immersive gaming, indoor navigation, and 3D scanning.

Two new OmniVision image sensors, the OV4682 and the OV7251, are part of Google's Tango development kit. The 4682 has a 4MP resolution, supports 90fps video capture, and can capture IR information (enables depth analysis), and the 7251 can capture VGA-resolution video at 100fps, while enabling low-light imaging and providing motion-tracking data.
