Autonomous vehicles and smart infrastructures, need to reliably perceive their environment. The most reliable sensors for this task are LiDAR sensors which measure direct distance information in 3D. So far, these sensors have been technologically complex, large and expensive.
Blickfeld was founded with the goal to build a high performant and mass producible LiDAR sensor. The company achieved this by reinventing one of the core components of the 3D sensors as well as rethinking the setup of the device. The result is a performant, small and reliable LiDAR sensor, that, in combination with Blickfeld’s perception software, enables countless mobility, smart city, industrial and security applications.
Blickfeld was founded in 2017 and is based in Munich, Germany.
