Fast and accurate production testing for perfect user experience

The LumiTop AR/VR system is specifically designed for production testing of near-eye displays (NEDs) in AR/VR headsets. The AR/VR lens mimics the human eye and measures color and luminance exactly as seen by the user. The periscope design gives easy access to the near-eye display and provides an optimal measurement position even under spatial constraints within a fully assembled headset. Even parallel operation of two LumiTops is possible to measure both near-eye-displays simultaneously. For module-level tests of AR/VR devices, alternatively a straight lens is available. A wide field of view, various pupil sizes and an adjustable focusing distance enable test applications within the complete production chain of NED and AR/VR headsets.

The LumiTop AR/VR system is based on the proven LumiTop principle: While an RGB camera captures the image of the near-eye-display in one shot, a reference spectroradiometer measures the spectrum of the image to provide highly accurate absolute luminance and color values. Since the measurement results are fully traceable to national standards, time-consuming golden sample calibration is unnecessary. The simultaneous measurement of 2D images, spectrum and flicker values, makes the LumiTop system one of the fastest, most comprehensive and extremly accurate light measurement solutions for diverse AR/VR tasks.

Instrument Systems also offers test systems for the IR light sources of a headset often used for gesture and object recognition.
