Who We Are

Mezmeriz is a venture-backed technology company developing novel reality capture tools for 3D mapping, reality modeling, object tracking and classification.

Our team has built an inexpensive hardware/software platform that allows users to easily scan and accurately digitize physical spaces in 3D, with the same resolution as industrial laser scanners, but at a fraction of the cost.

The Problem

There is an increasing demand from industries such as architecture/construction, virtual/augmented reality and autonomous vehicles for rapid and accurate capturing of 3D spaces and objects. Laser ranging/scanning is the gold standard to accurately measure and capture reality. But laser scanning equipment remains expensive, bulky and difficult to use, often being limited to the most critical of applications. Non-laser scanning 3D sensors can be inexpensive and small, but are incapable of outdoor use, and are unable to meet the range and absolute resolution demands of most applications.

Existing Technology Is

  • Bulky

  • Costly

  • Slow

  • Less Accurate

Our Technology

Mezmeriz's technology combines proprietary eye-safe MEMS laser scanning and silicon nanophotonics with signal processing algorithms to produce sensors capable of mapping space and motion, allowing for an easy, fast and inexpensive means of accurately capturing reality.

Our push-button simple Gen-1 ultraportable platform can instantaneously map 20m x 20m x 20m with a 360° x 240° field of view, within 90 seconds at a rate of up to 1 million points/second, and with an absolute accuracy <= 1 cm. Our Gen-2 sensor will be embeddable and provide similar resolution at video rates.

Mezmeriz's Lightsphere Camera

Each device uses Mezmeriz's Visual Processing Engine, which understands the data being scanned to automatically connect multiple scans, create models/floorplans, register and compares scan to design models to verify what has been built is what was designed/planned, and convert scans into photorealistic environments for virtual walk-throughs of spaces.
