Voxelsensors introduce breakthrough technology to detect…

(MENAFN– EIN Presswire) BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, Dec. 27, 2022 / — VoxelSensors, the leading provider of Active Event Sensor (AES) technology for 3D perception, will announce its Switching Pixels® solution at CES in Las Vegas in January 5-8, 2023. Switching Pixels are a new category of 3D perception systems designed to solve the current limitations of XR/AR/MR/VR applications by delivering unprecedented low power in milliwatts, low latency performance in nanoseconds and a simplified data path. .

Switching Pixels solves major challenges in 3D perception to bridge the gap between the physical and digital worlds. The technology is particularly useful for XR/AR/MR/VR glasses, which require low-power, low-latency perception systems for tasks such as Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM), anchoring, and interaction using gestures or controllers. VoxelSensors report impressive performance figures, including building 3D information sequentially at an update rate of 100Mhz (100 million updates per second, or 10 nanoseconds per update) and with only a power budget of 6 photons per
voxel to integrate accurate and reliable 3D perception.

With its unique architecture, Switching Pixels is the only technology on the market for visual odometry in less than 2 milliseconds while remaining unaffected by daylight, crosstalk or motion in dynamic scenes. While current state-of-the-art systems such as time-of-flight, stereoscopy, and event-based vision
Systems fail to meet the latency target of less than 10 milliseconds, Switching Pixels provides useful 3D data points as low as 1/10th of a millisecond.

VoxelSensors’ XR/AR/MR/VR laser beam scanning reference system outperforms current state-of-the-art smartphone LiDAR scanners, with a power budget of less than 25mW (over 90% power savings) and 2 millisecond latency (more than 90% reduction).

“As CEO of VoxelSensors, I wanted to develop technology that could revolutionize 3D perception while having a positive societal impact. XR/AR/MR/VR and related applications allow the world to blend the physical and digital worlds. such applications will elevate human communication to the next level and enable experiences that are out of reach for many of us today,” says Johannes Peeters, CEO and co-founder of VoxelSensors. “Blending the physical and virtual worlds will create amazing experiences for consumers and productivity gains in the corporate world.

The founding team of VoxelSensors has a long history of innovation in 3D sensing. They previously developed the CAPD CMOS pixel and successfully established a VUB (Vrije Universiteit Brussel) ToF sensor company. This technology was later developed by SoftKinetic, a company acquired by Sony in 2015. Using their vast experience, the founders of VoxelSensors set out to create new technology to address the well-known challenges of active 3D perception systems.
