Drone precision altimeter with TeraRanger One!

TeraRanger distance sensors are ideally suited for use in drone applications, and in particular as a ‘precision altimeter’. The small size, light weight (8g), fast update rates and plug and play compatibility with autopilots, make the sensors the first choice for many professional drone builders. Here are some examples: AirDog – The All-Terrain Autonomous Flying […]

Fast and complex aerial maneuvers – no problem for TeraRanger One!

“TeraRanger One is the ideal solution for us” says Alexis Lussier Desbiens, Professor of Robotics and Mechanical Engineering at Sherbrooke University, whose team has developed a fixed-wing flying robot that lands on vertical walls! The S-MAD  (Sherbrooke’s Multimodal Autonomous Drone) uses a thrust-assisted landing technique to reliably land on vertical walls, and then take-off again. […]

Presenting an industry view at SPIE

This time, Terabee CEO, Max Ruffo is presenting Optical sensors for robotics and automotive applications – An industrial perspective at SPIE, Munich. SPIE is the world-renowned international society for optics and photonics and their conferences are attended by leading figures in both […]

See us – simultaneously – in Lyon, April 2017

We are very comfortable with simultaneous activities, whether it is our sensors monitoring multiple axis, or attending trade shows! From April 4th to 7th 2017 we’ll be in Lyon, France, simultaneously showcasing our TeraRanger sensors and solutions at INDUSTRIE and SIdO!INDUSTRIE is the premier European event for production technologies while SIdO is an international showroom solely dedicated to […]

Terabee news in the news

We were delighted to be featured by both SPAR3D and sUAS News just recently. Both publications ran articles on Terabee’s Proof of Concept showing, for the very first time, how a static LiDAR can be used for drone collision avoidance against a wall. Joao Antunes of SPAR3D took a  look back at some of our other technology highlights before getting in to the […]

Simplifying the world of high-speed 2D & 3D sensing at IROS 2016

October 14th 2016, Daejeon, Korea: Presenting in the “Vision-based High Speed Autonomous Navigation of UAVs” workshop at IROS 2016 in Daejeon today, Terabee CEO, Max Ruffo, showcased the concepts and solutions developed by Terabee for “Simplifying the world of high-speed 2D & 3D sensing for robotics and drones”. In amongst the academics, Dr Ruffo was one […]

IEEE Spectrum makes music the TeraRanger way

Yes, TeraRanger Time-of-Flight distance sensors can also be made to create music! It’s this out of the box thinking that broadens the entire spectrum of sensing. Stephen Cass of IEEE Spectrum has taken on the challenge of making a musical machine which reacts on movement and distance. Check out his video below, or read his […]

Turning complexity on its head – a video presentation

September 22nd, 2016, Brussels, Belgium: See the presentation delivered by Terabee CEO, Max Ruffo, at AutoSens 2016. Max was invited to speak at AutoSens, the leading European conference on vehicle perception which brings together engineering disciplines, including imaging, LiDAR, radar, image processing, computer vision and others to collaborate, network and share challenges related to vehicle perception […]
