MEMS-based 3D laser scanning technology

Fraunhofer researchers have developed a 3D laser scanner with a light-travel time-measurement system based on the human eye and that can focus on key sections of an image and capture them with a correspondingly higher resolution. The system functions independently of ambient light and delivers high-quality 3D information in real time, even over greater distances. A novel MEMS scanning technology developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS in Dresden is the key hardware component. The institute will present the micro reflector components to a wider specialist audience at Vision in Stuttgart from 4 to 6 November, 2014.

Tronics and new principles detection in MEMS…

MEMS is a complex, interdisciplinary industry with a wide diversity of devices, processes and no defined production roadmap. Indeed, the Yole MEMS law “One MEMS, One process” still rules the MEMS production. But the MEMS & sensors industry is facing new challenges today such as cost & size reduction, reduced time-to-market, new sensing functionalities. These challenges are mostly driven by the consumer and portable / wearable electronics applications...
