Recently, ESA BIC Bavaria incubatee Blickfeld, who is developing light detection and ranging (LiDAR) systems based on a proprietary, highly performant and scalable technology, was announced by EU-Startups.com as one of the top 10 promising German startups to look out for in 2018. EU-Startups.com is one of the leading startup blogs in Europe focusing on Internet and tech startups.
The LiDAR scanners combine highest performance and reliability in a small size and at low cost – made possible by Blickfeld’s patent-pending silicon-based technology. The solution consists of a hardware and a software component: The core components of the hardware are solid-state silicon-based. The design allows to achieve highest robustness, small size, long range and high resolution, along with high scalability and cost-efficient production. The software consists of a real-time perception capability stack providing enriched object information.
Last year, the Munich-based startup already raised $4.25 million in a seed financing round from Fluxunit – OSRAM Ventures, High-Tech Gründerfonds, Tengelmann Ventures, und Unternehmertum Venture Capital Partners.
The revolutionary startup Blickfeld joined the ESA BIC Bavaria family last year.
The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That does not mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.
