Several unique hardware configurations and methods for freeform optical display systems are disclosed. A freeform display system includes primary freeform optical element(s) and secondary freeform optical element(s) in tiled arrangements to expand the horizontal field of view (FOV) or the vertical field of view. The system may include a variable focusing system that produces intermediate pupil and changes the focal distance of a single focal plane or switches among multiple focal planes for rendering objects in focus while resolving accommodation-convergence conflict. The system may map light samples to appropriate light rays in physical space and use a cluster of projectors to project the mapped light rays to produce the light field of the virtual display content. Methods for making tiled freeform optical display systems and methods for producing virtual content with variable focus freeform optics and rendering light fields are also disclosed.

A system for generating multi-depth image sequence comprising a modulation array. The modulation array comprising a plurality of light modulators which may shift light incident upon the modulators by a number of degrees. The plurality of light modulators may shift light in concert according to a modulation shift pattern. The modulation shift pattern can be configured to focus incident light to a voxel or to form a 3-D image. One or more modulation shift patterns can be changed or cycled through to raster one or more image objects in one or more image depth planes.

A virtual image generation system for use by an end user comprises a projection subsystem configured for generating a collimated light beam, and a display configured emitting light rays in response to the collimated light beam to display a pixel of an image frame to the end user. The pixel has a location encoded with angles of the emitted light rays. The virtual image generation system further comprises a sensing assembly configured for sensing at least one parameter indicative of at least one of the emitted light ray angles, and a control subsystem configured for generating image data defining a location of the pixel, and controlling an angle of the light beam relative to the display based on the defined location of the pixel and the sensed parameter(s).

An augmented reality display system includes an electromagnetic field emitter to emit a known magnetic field in a known coordinate system. The system also includes an electromagnetic sensor to measure a parameter related to a magnetic flux at the electromagnetic sensor resulting from the known magnetic field. The system further includes a depth sensor to measure a distance in the known coordinate system. Moreover, the system includes a controller to determine pose information of the electromagnetic sensor relative to the electromagnetic field emitter in the known coordinate system based at least in part on the parameter related to the magnetic flux measured by the electromagnetic sensor and the distance measured by the depth sensor. In addition, the system includes a display system to display virtual content to a user based at least in part on the pose information of the electromagnetic sensor relative to the electromagnetic field emitter.

Systems and methods for eye image set selection, eye image collection, and eye image combination are described. Embodiments of the systems and methods for eye image combination can include assigning an eye pose region of a plurality of eye pose regions to each eye image and determining a representation of an eye pose in each eye image. The set of the determined representations can be fused to generate a hybrid eye image, which can in turn be used to generate an iris code associated with a confidence score.

Systems and methods for eye image set selection, eye image collection, and eye image combination are described. Embodiments of the systems and methods for eye image set selection can include comparing a determined image quality metric with an image quality threshold to identify an eye image passing an image quality threshold, and selecting, from a plurality of eye images, a set of eye images that passes the image quality threshold.


Configurations are disclosed for presenting virtual reality and augmented reality experiences to users. The system may comprise a spatial light modulator operatively coupled to an image source for projecting light associated with one or more frames of image data, and a variable focus element (VFE) for varying a focus of the projected light such that a first frame of image data is focused at a first depth plane, and a second frame of image data is focused at a second depth plane, and wherein a distance between the first depth plane and the second depth plane is fixed.


Several unique configurations for interferometric recording of volumetric phase diffractive elements with relatively high angle diffraction for use in waveguides are disclosed. Separate layer EPE and OPE structures produced by various methods may be integrated in side-by-side or overlaid constructs, and multiple such EPE and OPE structures may be combined or multiplexed to exhibit EPE/OPE functionality in a single, spatially-coincident layer. Multiplexed structures reduce the total number of layers of materials within a stack of eyepiece optics, each of which may be responsible for displaying a given focal depth range of a volumetric image. Volumetric phase type diffractive elements are used to offer properties including spectral bandwidth selectivity that may enable registered multi-color diffracted fields, angular multiplexing capability to facilitate tiling and field-of-view expansion without crosstalk, and all-optical, relatively simple prototyping compared to other diffractive element forms, enabling rapid design iteration.


Configurations are disclosed for presenting virtual reality and augmented reality experiences to users. The system may comprise an image capturing device to capture one or more images, the one or more images corresponding to a field of the view of a user of a head-mounted augmented reality device, and a processor communicatively coupled to the image capturing device to extract a set of map points from the set of images, to identify a set of sparse points and a set of dense points from the extracted set of map points, and to perform a normalization on the set of map points.
