Presentation Summary

Up until now, bats and few other animals were the only ones who could perceive their environment via echolocation with ultrasound. Technical applications were limited to the one-dimensional use of ultrasound.
Toposens has now developed the first real 3D ultrasound sensor, which perceives its environment via ultrasound in 3D, similar to a bat. This technology can be used for various applications: Autonomous vehicles can use 3D ultrasound to get a detailed view of their surroundings, people can be tracked (anonymously) to e.g. implement automated heating and lighting in office buildings and smartphones, computers etc. can now be reliably controlled via gestures.
