Intel® RealSense™ SDK 2016 R3 Documentation

Introducing the SDK

The Intel® RealSense™ SDK 2016 R3 is a library of pattern detection and recognition algorithm implementations exposed through standardized interfaces. The library aims at lowering barriers to using these algorithms and shifting the application developers’ focus from coding the algorithm details to innovating on the usage of these algorithms for next generation human computer experience.

Optimization Notice
Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor- dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
