Improving camera technology
With its new strategic investor Konica Minolta, MOBOTIX aims at improving its leading camera technology through innovations such as new high-resolution imaging sensors and high-grade lenses.
Next-generation security solutions
A further objective of Konica Minolta and MOBOTIX is the joint development of next-generation security solutions including Konica Minolta‘s industrial optical systems. Konica Minolta‘s 3D-LiDAR for instance scans wide areas at a high precision level. This laser sensor will be able to generate 3D images, determine the distance, the size and even the speed of a moving object. Intelligent solutions for specific vertical markets will be developed with the technology and experience of both companies, for instance a “Care Support Solution“ for monitoring residents at nursing care homes and hospitals.
