The Automotive Development Kit is Toposens latest 3D ultrasound sensor unit that enables autonomous vehicles to "see with sound" in 3D.
While existing sensor technologies mostly focus on covering far distances, the immediate environment around a car (0 - 5 m) is often left out of the discussion. That is where the Automotive Dev Kit comes into play. The Automotive DevKit can be mounted onto an autonomous vehicle, where it will map its environment, detecting both still and moving objects. Features such as improved collision avoidance (reverse AEB) and fully automated parking can be realized. Further the sensors can be applied in the car interior, to determine the number and position of passengers present.
Sophisticated algorithms that run on a chip directly on the sensor system itself enable each sensor to work independently while also providing a high energy efficiency. This unique combination of standard hardware and proprietary software create a 3D sensor that is perfectly suited to the application in the autonomous vehicles space. Toposens sensors provide reliable, rich and three-dimensional data (point cloud) for the close-range environment around the vehicle. The sensors are therefore well suited for applications in the automotive field and are able to cover areas, that conventional radar and camera technologies are struggling with.
