Our 3D-LiDAR, definitely sees 3D reality, anywhere and anytime.
Instant 3D scene is definitely captured by innovated laser scanning and photon sensing technology.
A true light weight 3D-LiDAR is coming to a palm-sized drone.
Our 3D-LiDAR doesn't need any heat sink, which essentially makes the device to be lightweight. The core of 3D-LiDAR is only at 240g to support all LiDAR functions, for any handheld applications, even for a palm-sized drone.
Our competitive lightweight extends understanding of 3D reality from ground to sky, opening your unlimited imagination to look at the real world.
The fundamental innovation: the world largest reciprocal scanning angle in open air
This fundamental breakthrough significantly reduced quantities of eletrical and optical components used in a LiDAR device to be current 1 % or less. We are the world first to bring a high definition LiDAR from premier price to be personally affordable.
Our innovated scanning technology achieved much larger scanning angle than any other "solid-state" scheme, whatever it is a MEMS mirror or a micro-eletro-optical beam steering method.
Our technology breakthough realized to stably drive a large scanning mirror ONLY at 5V for more than 10,000rpm high speed.
We involved in all the development stages to put our actuator to mass producation, from the start of proof-of-concept to component design, and finally to manufacturing process.
The fundamental challenge: see each photon anytime.
Our patented photon sensing technology and related patent-in-application makes our LiDAR definitely see a single photon back from objects, whenever in sunny day or at night.
Our technology signicantly decreases laser power in distane measurement. The smaller laser energy, the more safe to human eye. Our LiDAR device is obeying to the most trustable eye-safety criterion at Class I@C6=1 .

Our challenges make a high-definition 3D-LiDAR become suitable for handheld purpose.
Drop test of our actuator to a concrete floor in scanning
Extreme overload to our actuator in scanning
Not be afraid of sun anymore
A LiDAR will never be afraid of another LiDAR.
As an active distance measurement tool emitting laser, the big challenge is how to get immunity if the laser beam of one LiDAR intentionly emit to another LiDAR.
Our patented optical system makes the probability to see external light interference naturally reduce as low as 1/368,640,000.
Our LiDAR never needs any electrical synchronization for interference immunity, it makes everything be as simple as it should be when using many LiDARs together.
Monolithic body for handheld reliability
We understand opto-mechanical complexity involved in a LiDAR device makes it difficult if attempts robot-based automation. Our monolithic body design garanteed every component inside the LiDAR is exactly on its position at micrometer precison.
This innovated manufacturing method significantly reduces machine-based errors and human miss in LiDAR manufacture. We make a precision LiDAR device suitable to be cell-based production with the lowest assembling errors.
Dolphin is a technology venture stablished in 2018 in Japan. We are pursuing to make a personally affordable 3D-LiDAR scanner to record every real 3D scene as simple as it should be. Different to any other single-task-oriented LiDAR instruments for vehicle or topology purpose, we understand as a LiDAR imager for a personal use, it should be with visual imaging quality, with real-time response, stable in arbitrary environment, with handheld weight, with low power consumption, with palmed size, as well as it should obey to the most trustable laser eye-safety for daily use. During past four years, we made numerous technology innovations to realize this goal. As a personal device, our LiDAR has competitive merits with distance sensing range up to 98m and 3D imaging quality up to 47m. We also cover ultra-wide scanning angle, and make a LiDAR device working in tough outdoor condition. Our team members are from variety of industrial background, including laser barcode engine, optical pickup device, watch movement component, precision robot control etc. Our deep knowledge involved in real mass production makes our 3D-LiDAR creates more imagination in your 3D reality.
