People and Object Detection via Ultrasound - Small, Robust, Precise
Toposens creates groundbreaking new technology for machine vision. We are not trying to make old things better - instead we use new methods to give you the 3D sensor that you have been waiting for.
Toposens follows an unusual path – we provide Vision for Technology without using any optical components!
Our sensor follows the principles of the echolocation of a bat, who can see tiny objects by emitting ultrasound signals and receiving their reflections. We adapted this method and developed a small sensor system based on ultrasound. The Toposens 3D sensor therefore enables machines and robots to better perceive their surroundings without the disadvantages inherent to optical systems.
Toposens makes it possible to see with sound – an ability that brings with it several important advantages that have not been combined into one single 3D sensor system up to now.
Due to its innovative approach, the Toposens 3D sensor opens up new fields of application. Its characteristics enable the operation of the sensor also under difficult environmental circumstances. The innovative sensor can perceive 3D positions of objects and people.
Toposens 3D ultrasound sensors can monitor the near-field surrounding of autonomous cars in a detailed 3D image. The 3D sensors thereby enable autonomous parking and collision avoidance in difficult and dense traffic situations.
Further applications include counting and tracking people in smart buildings, gesture control, collision avoidance for robots and virtual reality.
The innovative sensors of Toposens bring together characteristics, which have not been combined into one single sensor system to this date.
