Introduced in January 2021, 'Real Sense ID' realizes a function that enables continuous face recognition even if physical characteristics such as human hairstyle and eyeglasses change over time, and various lighting conditions and various types.

However, according to information that Intel revealed to the news media on August 18, 2021, RealSense technology will be discontinued due to the contraction of the camera and sensor business. The decision appears to be influenced by RealSense team leader Sagi Ben Moshe's announcement that he will leave Intel in the first week of August 2021.

Intel told the press, 'We will end the RealSense business and focus on migrating computer vision talent, technologies and products to drive innovative technologies that better support our core business and IDM 2.0 strategy. 'We continue our commitment to our current customers and are working to ensure a smooth transition for our employees and customers.'
