Fast 3D imaging "solid state flash Lidar" for automotive safety and autonomous robots

Fastree3D solid-state single chip motion sensor delivers 3D imaging for the new markets of automotive safety and autonomous robotics. We develop high resolution LIDARs at a consumer electronics costs, typically 2 cm voxels, 100 fps, at 30m range for less than 200$. The innovation consists in system on chip CMOS circuit integrating an array (QQVGA = 19K pixels) of single photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) together with digital processing for direct time-of-flight and (ToF) dand the control of laser illuminators (VCSEL arrays). The project is supported by 2 industrial suppliers, 3 Universities (EPFL / TU-Delft), protected by 14 patents (8 granted) and results from 2 EU R&D projects. The founders team has 50 years experience in photo sensing and image processing in projects such as design of sensors for Microsoft for Kinnect, Espros proximity sensors, HP labs video conferencing and Philips Healthcare radiology image servers.
