CoSys-Lab RTIS sensors

Industrially tested and validated sonar sensing systems capable of capturing the entire frontal hemisphere. Meant for use in industrial environments where other sensing modalities might struggle due to a lack of light, flying debris, extreme moisture, dust, fog, etc. .

Based on over a decade of intense research, we update the ultrasonic sensing modality - one of the oldest sensing modalities used in robotics - to be able to compete with other state-of-the-art sensing modalities for autonomous navigation and smart industries applications.

As strong advocates  of industry-driven innovation, we are always excited to work along with external partners who need or want to experiment with ultrasound sensing in their specific application scenarios. Contact us using the form below!
