Fast 3D imaging sensors subsystem for automotive safety and autonomous robots

Fastree3D provides the performance of research instruments (maping and civil engineering LIDARs) at the cost of consumer technologies (as used in gesture control, gaming). This enables 3D vision is essential for automotive safety, machine vision and gesture control. Fastree3D provide single photon detectors and accurate time-digital counters manufactured with standard CMOS. These measure distance digitally using direct time-of-flight. We implement near infra-red lasers illumination using VCSEL arrays pulsed at MHz rates. - Resolution ( > 3 mm, 20ps time of single-photon detector ), - accuracy (operations under bright or dark lighting condition, high dynamic range and signal/noise ratio; using high frequency pulsed illumination), - long distance (>50m measured). The project benefits from 9 published patents (4 awarded) and results from 2 EU R&D projects.
