Time-of-Flight Technology

Time of Flight is the most promising technology in 3D depth sensing and mapping. It is also known as near range solid state Lidar. 

Compared to Stereo Vision 3D technology which depends on complicated algorithm and requests heavy computation, the mechanism of ToF is direct. Therefore, ToF is comparatively in a compact form and able to generate real-time depth data without heavy computing load or high power usage.

Compared to Structure Light, ToF has a long working range and is less affected by the interruption from environment light.

Object Avoidance

Sentinel is adopted by a leading North American drone company to deliver advanced object avoidance solution. By using VSemi's technology, drones are well aware of object like thin wire, white walls that are difficult to identify before. Meanwhile, drones can perform tasks under complex and extreme conditions and are less affected by environment, such as sunlight. 

Blind Spot Monitoring

VSemi cooperates with world's leading Automotive Infotainment System provider in developing ToF technology based Blind Spot Monitoring system. By using VSemi's technology, the vehicle can detect low speed moving objects and identify objects with embedded AI algorithm. The system will be exhibited at CES 2020.

Machine Vision

Sentinel is getting adopted by robotic arm systems and industrial autonomous cleaning robots. The superior 3D data acquisition from Sentinel empowered the systems with object detection, item counting, anti-collision, edge detection, low height on-floor object detection and more.
