Innovation made in Saxony

Home of 3dvisionabs is Chemnitz in the German federal state of Saxony. The Chemnitz-Zwickau region, cradle for the German automotive industry is the traditional heart of Saxony’s economy. With a century-long history of industrial culture the Free State is a great place for researchers, engineers and entrepreneurs.

Chemnitz is also great for recreation. Only a short drive from our headquarter the UNESCO World heritage site of Ore Mountain Nature Park is a great spot for hiking, biking or skiing.

The Founders

With his strong background in research of stereo vision technologies Michel provided the foundation of our revolutionary depth sensing technology HemiStereo®. As our CEO he is also responsible for outbound communication and sales. If you just learned about 3dvisionlabs you might have met Michel at a conference or on a trade show floor.

Michel Findeisen

Co-Founder & CEO

With his engineering background and his passion for clean design Lars is responsible for our company’s visual appearance – both in terms of our physical products and our corporate identity. As our CEO Lars leads Hardware Development and Product Design.

Lars Meinel

Co-Founder & CEO

As a passionate, multi-talented software engineer and a persistent problem-solver Markus single-handedly developed the core of our real-time embedded depth sensing framework. If you’re a developer and work with our SDK or tool chain anything you get in touch with bears his signature.

Our History

Every innovation is a product of its unique history – and so is HemiStereo®. The lack of wide-angle depth sensing cameras hindered many applications of people sensing. This made our founders wonder whether the inherent limitations introduced by perspective stereo vision could be overcome.

Over time the idea took shape – today we are proud to provide our revolutionary technology to capture a complete room in three dimensions with a single sensor. This is how 3dvisionlabs came into being.

2012

Our Founders met at Chemnitz University of Technology.

2014

Led by our Co-founder Michel Findeisen the team published its first papers about real-time omni-directional stereo vision.

2017

Supported by the EXIST Business Start-up Grant 3dvisionlabs GmbH is founded in August 2017.

2019

German technology start-up fund „Technologiegründerfonds Sachsen“ (TGFS) invests in 3dvisionlabs GmbH.

2020

Grown to a team of ten 3dvisionlabs releases it first product HemiStereo DK1.
