12.2016 - Toposens Evaluation Kit Launch
We are happy to announce the release of our first product, the Toposens Evaluation Kit!
Toposens develops 3D sensors based on ultrasound, that can be used to track people, conduct gesture control and detect objects. Sophisticated algorithms make it possible for the first time to track 3D positions with only one small ultrasound sensor system. 3D ultrasound sensors are characterized by their small build size, low energy consumption, great robustness and privacy protection.
As a first step, Toposens built an Evaluation Kit that contains the hardware and software needed to test the innovative 3D ultrasound technology. It is aimed towards R&D departments, which can integrate the Toposens sensor into new products and processes to check whether this technology could be a useful addition.
The Evaluation Kit includes the Toposens 3D Ultrasound Sensor V 1.0, which has a range of 6m and can already precisely detect hands, people and objects. Interested parties range from the automotive industry, consumer electronics companies to building automation.
More information about the first, limited series of Toposens Evaluation Kits can be found here.
