A breakthrough makes even the tiniest 3D sensor up to 1,000 times sharper


This approach practically overcomes ambiguities in polarization-based shape sensing


The trick boils down to measuring the exact orientation of light that bounces off an object


The technique could lead to high-quality 3D cameras and, further out, aid in the development of driverless cars
