VoxelSensors, a Brussels-based startup specialised in blending the physical and digital worlds through 3D perception, has secured €5 million. 

The funding round was led by Belgian VC Capricorn Partners (backed Gradyent) and Qbic, with participation from finance&, existing investors, and the company’s dedicated team.

As a part of the funding round, Marc Lambrechts from Capricorn Partners and Steven Leuridan from Qbic are appointed to VoxelSensors’ Board of Directors, effective immediately. 

The funding will be used to further develop VoxelSensors’ roadmap, hire key employees, and strengthen business engagements with customers in the US and Asia. 

“Our goal at VoxelSensors is to seamlessly integrate the physical and digital worlds to a point level where they become indistinguishable,” said Johannes Peeters, co-founder, and CEO of VoxelSensors. “Extended Reality has rapidly gained traction in recent years, with diverse applications across sectors such as gaming, entertainment, education, healthcare, manufacturing, and more. With our Switching Pixels® Active Event Sensor technology we are poised to deliver unparalleled opportunities for groundbreaking user experiences. We are excited by the opportunity to contribute to the growth of our growing industry and honored by the trust of these investors to help us expand the company and accelerate market penetration.” 

Helping XR companies blend physical and digital worlds

Founded by Johannes Peeters, and Ward van der Tempel, VoxelSensors is at the forefront of 3D perception, providing cutting-edge sensors and solutions for seamless integration of the physical and digital worlds.

Typically, Extended Reality device manufacturers face the challenge of integrating 3D perception technology that consumes minimal power and offers ultra-low latency. These are crucial for creating immersive experiences that seamlessly blend the physical and digital worlds

The company’s patented Switching Pixels Active Event Sensor (SPAES) technology represents a novel category of efficient 3D perception systems, delivering low latency with ultra-low power consumption by capturing a new Voxel with fewer than 10 photons. 

According to the company’s claims, the Switching Pixels Active Event Sensor is the world’s first solution to achieve less than 10 milliwatts of power consumption combined with less than 5 milliseconds of latency.

“With Switching Pixels Active Event Sensing (SPAES) we challenge the status quo in 3D perception,” concludes VoxelSensors’ co-founder and CTO of VoxelSensors, PhD Ward van der Tempel. “This groundbreaking technology unlocks new possibilities in Extended Reality by addressing previously unmet needs such as precise segmentation, spatial mapping, anchoring, and natural interaction. Moreover, this breakthrough innovation extends beyond Extended Reality and has exciting potential

“We are excited to invest with the Capricorn Digital Growth Fund in VoxelSensors. We appreciate the broad experience in the team, the flexibility of the 3D perception solution towards different applications, and the solid intellectual property base, essential for the success of a deep tech startup. The team has a proven track record to build a scalable business model within a Europe-based semiconductor value chain. We also highly value the support of the Brussels region via Innoviris,” explained Marc Lambrechts, Investment Director at Capricorn Partners.
