VoxelSensors’ patented Switching Pixels Active Event Sensor technology features ultralow power and ultralow latency 3D perception sensors designed to resolve current limitations in XR/AR/MR/VR applications. The laser beam scanning-based 3D perception technology is able to perform sequential construction of 3D information, localizing active laser points or structures in space, at a 100-MHz update rate and with an energy budget of 6 photons per voxel to integrate accurate and reliable 3D perception. According to the company, by serializing the depth acquisition via scanning triangulation, the system has low computational complexity, since no stereo-matching of complex images is needed.

The technology is targeted for consumer electronics and enterprise AR/VR/MR wearables markets.

In December 2022, VoxelSensors entered into a strategic collaboration with OQmented, a provider of microelectrochemical systems- (MEMS)-based AR/VR display and 3D sensing solutions. The collaboration focuses on the system integration and commercialization of VoxelSensors’ Switching Pixels 3D perception system for AR/VR/MR and XR devices, enabled through OQmented’s Lissajous scan pattern that provides faster and more efficient scanning compared to raster scanning. VoxelSensors then revealed its Switching Pixels solution during the CES show in January.

augmented reality
Augmented reality (AR) is a technology that integrates digital information, typically in the form of computer-generated graphics, images, or data, with the real-world environment in real-time. AR enhances the user's perception of the physical world by overlaying or combining digital content onto the user's view of the real world, often through devices like smartphones, tablets, smart glasses, or specialized AR headsets.

That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
