New IoT sensor detects metallic structures in plastics with micrometer precision

Breakthrough innovation enables a multitude of uses in the non-destructive inspection of hidden components in quality control

Freiburg (D), April 2020 – The German tech startup OndoSense has developed an IoT sensor that enables an ultra-precise detection of metallic structures for the first time within plastics or other electrically non-conductive materials: The sensor, based on innovative radar technology, measures the distances to metallic objects that are embedded in plastics, cardboard, rubber etc. with micrometer accuracy. Objects that are behind these electrically non-conductive materials are also detected. OndoSense was founded in 2018 by Mathias Klenner and Axel Hülsmann, two radar and high frequency solutions experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics in Freiburg, Germany.
