Innovative technologies in the field of optical sensors and short, medium and long-range 3D devices to demonstrate their value in several key applications in the automotive, security, smart buildings, mobile robotics for smart cities and Industry 4.0 sectors.
VIZTA project also focuses on multimodal 2D/3D imaging, proposing a monolithic integration that would enable smaller, cheaper and more efficient systems. The innovation of VIZTA would improve significantly the multimodal 2D/3D imaging current systems which use two separate sensors to capture the depth and the colour image.
The solution proposed by the project, which allows the implementation and validation of innovative 3D imaging sensors products, includes 6 pilots to demonstrate the technologies developed in different sectors.
Eurecat’s Robotics and Automation Unit participates in the project evaluating the impact of new developed sensors for 3D navigation, 3D reconstruction and defect detection for robotics autonomous inspection applications. Eurecat is also responsible for the developments on uses in mobile robotics for smart cities use case, which seeks to evaluate the performance of sensors incorporated in robotic platforms in real scenarios such as sewerage systems, railway and subway tunnels, as well as other complex facilities.
The consortium of the project, coordinated by STMicroelectronics Crolles (France), counts with the participation of 23 partners from 9 European countries.
