ESA BIC Bavaria will support the new startup Toposens in developing its real-time 3D ultrasound sensor technology.The company uses off-the-shelf, low-cost components and arranges them in a specific design. The startup combines this hardware with their unique knowhow that lies in the software and thus offer a small but powerful sensor that recognises its surroundings. This sensor is the first of its kind - using ultrasound able to scan in real time in 3D with one single sensor system.
