Powerful 3D depth sensing.
For Cars.

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.

Older robot vacuum cleaners used a random, inefficient, and slow cleaning pattern. Smart robots generate a map of their environment using sensors and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to localize, providing users with a floorplan from which areas can be selected for cleaning, or restricted from access. This whitepaper describes designing slimmer robots with new features using an approach with novel time-of-flight cameras.

In collaboration with device manufacturer OMS and Infineon Technologies AG (FSE: IFX / OTCQX: IFNNY), we have developed a new high-resolution camera solution that enables enhanced depth sensing and 3D scene understanding for next-generation smart consumer robots. The new hybrid Time of Flight solution combines two depth sensing concepts and helps significantly reduce maintenance effort and costs for smart robots.
