Toposens ECHO ONE DK, Ultrasonic Echolocation Sensor for 3D Collision Avoidance
3D Ultrasonic Sensor guides AGVs, robots, and other industrial applications – 3D Object Detection
Guidance for AGV, robot, and other industrial applications
Munich-based high-tech company Toposens GmbH is officially releasing its new Ultrasonic Echolocation Sensor for 3D Collision Avoidance.
Unlike existing sensor technologies that can be negatively impacted by lighting conditions or moisture (such as fog), Toposens' ECHO ONE DK uses echolocation to generate robust, real-time 3D echo location data to guide autonomous systems across a variety of applications. The performance of this 3D ultrasonic sensor is particularly robust in harsh environments (featuring the IP67 protection rating), as it is dirt tolerant and not affected by dust, smoke, and mist.
The ECHO ONE DK features 3D multi-object detection of complex and transparent objects in an ultra-short operating range from 20cm up to 3m. It offers an ultra-wide Field-of-View of up to 180° in ultra-short range and up to 110° at 3m. Its low power consumption of 2.2 W supports a longer robot uptime, and it is fully certified according to CE, FCC and IP67 regulation. For an easy integration, this DK comes with a CAN and USB interface and the following software packages: Toposens Sensor Library (C++-Library)
"Our biggest asset is our innovative combination of unique hardware configuration and software packages, based on patented 3D and Time-of-Flight algorithms and noise filtering, processing ultrasonic echo data into reliable 3D data", says Tobias Bahnemann, CEO and Co-Founder of Toposens, and concludes: "With our sensor solution, the high costs of operating accidents can be reduced, improving safety in manufacturing environments, and increasing the ROI of AGV applications."
