Powerful 3D depth sensing.
For Phones.

What we do
We enable machines to see and understand the world. In every dimension!

At pmd we develop cutting-edge 3D image sensors and system components based on the Time-of-Flight (ToF) principle. With our advanced and unique depth-sensing technology, we help products from every industry to see, understand, and recognize the world. Just like humans do. And actually better.

We bring secure face authentication and image beautification to smartphones, gesture control and driver monitoring to cars, localization and mapping (SLAM) to augmented reality headsets and autonomous navigation to robots and drones.

Adding the smart to Smartphones

With our specially developed Time-of-Flight (ToF) imagers for smartphones we are enabling exciting new applications and significantly improving existing ones.

Consumer Applications

Natural HMI & enhanced safety features

As cars get more and more functions, natural interactions are becoming an important tool to simplify the human-machine interface (HMI) and increase passenger safety.

Automotive Applications

3D for the fourth industrial revolution

Ubiquitous sensing and computing in combination with big data analytics are the driving forces of the fourth industrial revolution.
