3D Ultrasonic Echolocation sensor

The worlds-first and only 3D ultrasonic technology, which allows you to determine multiple object positions in three-dimensional space on proven ultrasonic technology

How does the sensor work?

Measurement cycle of an 3D Ultrasonic Echolocation Sensor:
  • Transducer sends out an ultrasonic pulse
  • Pulse is reflected by surrounding objects
  • Reflected pulse is received by an array of microphones on the sensor
  • Positions of the echoes are calculated as 3D coordinates, based on the different times when echoes arrive at the individual microphones
  • 3D coordinates are outputted at the end of each measurement cycle

Locate object position in 3D based on proven ultrasonic technology

Robust to lighting conditions, dust and dirt

Detects transparent and complex objects

Applicable in a wide variety of industries

1. Ultrasonic Pulse

3D Echolocation Sensor sends out an ultrasonic pulse

2. Reflected Echo

Pulse is reflected by surrounding objects and received by the sensors microphones

3. 3D Echo Point Cloud

Based on echo ToF data, the origins of the echoes are calculated as 3D coordinates

Cost-efficient and suitable for many industries

For the future of robotic, automotive, and industrial markets, there is a need for reliable, robust, and cost-efficient solutions. Whether you want your robot to avoid collisions or you want to avoid scratching your rims on curbstones.

Our 3D Ultrasonic Echolocation sensor will help you to solve these tasks.

The sensor works by combining the time-of-flight principle of conventional ultrasonic sensors with triangulation and advanced signal processing algorithms.
