Mobile robots are an emerging technology with many applications ranging from consumer products (e.g. vacuuming and gardening), over industrial uses, (e.g. material-handling and delivery), to experimental uses (e.g. extraterrestrial exploration). One crucial aspect of mobile robots is how they navigate, which requires different computational and sensory capabilities. Common sensors already allow for guided navigation, such as by following markers or locating reference points.

3D sensors are becoming more important for mobile robots that need to handle uncharted environments in order to enable new, groundbreaking use-cases. Besides camera- and laser-based 3D sensors, 3D ultrasound sensors are an innovative solution for autonomous robots. They work similar to the echolocation principle of bats and detect objects in 3D in real time. 3D ultrasound sensors are robust, low-cost, small-sized, lightweight and require low processing power, differentiating them from alternative 3D sensors.
