Our History

Toposens Fish

Find out more about us – the brains behind the world’s first 3D ultrasonic echolocation sensor:

Toposens was founded in 2015 and is based in Munich. The story of the company began when founder Alexander Rudoy tried to develop a robotic fish toy that moves independently through water using an electric motor. In order to avoid collisions with real fishes, Alexander needed suitable sensors that made orientation possible. Because he could not find any he created the algorithm for his own Advanced Ultrasonic Sensor.

Since then, Toposens has grown substancially and is now made up of experts in embedded systems, hardware development, 3D sensing, digital signal processing and machine learning, professional program management, as well as high-tech B2B marketing and sales. Together, we have successfully developed the worlds-first 3D Ultrasonic Sensor based on the principle of bionic, mimicking the echolocation techniques of a bat, to deliver robust, low-cost and precise near-range 3D data points.

Unlike existing sensor technologies, which can be negatively impacted by light conditions, reflections, and weather, we have created a system using real-time 3D data mapping and object recognition software to guide autonomous systems such as AGVs, even in the most difficult environments.

We are very proud of our client portfolio, which includes some of the world’s leading companies in robotics and automotive.

Our team unites all skills necessary to turn an innovative sensor technology into a finished product. We specialise in 3D collision avoidance for mobile robots such as AGVs and AMRs for all sectors within the robotics industries, in particular for the logistics and supply chain sector.

A common pain point in this market is the difficulty of optical sensors to reliably detect forklift forks due to their black colour, especially in unfavourable light conditions.

Detecting objects with sound instead of vision, our sensors can meet these shortcomings for next-level robotic safety.

Our Co-Founders

Toposens was co-founded by Tobias Bahnemann, Alexander Rudoy and Rinaldo Persichini. Tobi overseas the business operations, whilst Alex is responsible for the software department and Aldo heads the research & development department.
