Applications. Your sensing application is unique – and so are your requirements. XperYenZ™ sensor systems are versatile and can be adapted to individual sensing challenges.

Imaging

 

XperYenZ™ sensor systems can be used for full scenery 3D imaging. Location of individual objects within a complex scenery can also be determined.

For the integration into smartphones we have developed an active 3D imaging technology based on our new measurement principle. It uses the built-in smartphone camera combined with a simple, readily available light projector. It’s as accurate as structured light but does not depend on patterns.

Distance measurement

 

Scanning

 

XperYenZ™ sensor systems enable different types of distance measurements. They work with visible or infrared light, enabling both visible and invisible scanning applications. The reflections of one or mulitple light sources can be scanned simultaneously.

Tracking

 

XperYenZ™ distance measurements work with targets that actively emit visible or infrared light. Single or multiple targets can be tracked and analyzed in a lean way. Precise data can be delivered in real time. By attaching the targets to objects, the position of the object can also be measured, enabling motion tracking.
