3D sonar sensor delivers close range perception in robotics
TOPOSENS TS3 a 3D ultrasonic sensor suitable for a wide range of applications in the autonomous systems market that require a strong need for reliable object detection and situational awareness. Device achieves a wide field of view of up to 160° and provide simultaneous 3D measurements for multiple objects within the scanning area. The operation thus mimics the echolocation techniques used by bats and dolphins for navigation and orientation in the wild. Device combines carefully selected hardware components with proprietary signal processing algorithms and is suitable for indoor robotic navigation and object avoidance. Systems benefit from its real-time processing capabilities while keeping data transmission bandwidth and power consumption low, which is especially important for battery powered robots.
