SD3D camera use-cases


3D perception system for a robotic vehicle developer with

optimized computational resource, power supply, space and budget available per vehicle.


WHY?

Service robots need reliable and affordable 3D imaging to become an integral part of our future.

Available 3D imaging solutions either cost thousands of euros or offer too low performance in real-life situations.

Our vision is to build an affordable 3D camera to empower any robot.

"It is obvious that robots must see the world they operate in. I'm very impressed by how LightCode solves this science fiction problem today, and for real. In a way, the software can be said to ‘eat’ the lasers.”

Sten Tamkivi, founder of Teleport (acquired by Topia in 2017)


When?

In January 2021 the LightCode SD3D camera prototype was about the size of a suitcase.

In June 2021 we are about to complete the “shoebox” prototype.

The system will fit into a card deck size package by the end of 2021.

By 2023 the LightCode SD3D Camera will fit it into a matchbox.


“Milrem Robotics develops robotic systems for challenging environment. Our customers would hugely benefit from improved autonomy provided by novel 3D imaging systems. That’s why we are so eagerly looking forward to LightCode Photonics' new cameras.
