The coffee machine is standing still, but the Blickfeld team keeps pushing forward. These are truly extraordinary times. We at Blickfeld have also been contemplating the current situation and have taken measures to protect our employees as best we can while also helping to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

Meanwhile lets just say that we are proud blickfeld contributed a whooping 26 entries.
Blickfeld has completed its Series A financing round. Blickfeld will use the new financial resources to ramp up production, qualify its LiDAR sensors for the automotive market and strengthen the application development and sales teams for industrial markets.
While established trade shows are increasingly struggling for exhibitors and are forced to rethink their concepts, for many companies worldwide the Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, in Las Vegas has become the trade show not to be missed. This year was the first time for Blickfeld exhibiting with its own booth.
If we had to give 2019 a title, it would be “growth”: Our product family has grown, we have built up our production and significantly expanded our team. And an end to growth is not in sight! Before 2019 is over, we want to take a look at some of the events of the last twelve months. This was 2019 for Blickfeld:
Blickfeld receives the German award “The Spark” by Handelsblatt and McKinsey which honors digital innovation. In a 90-second pitch on Thursday evening, co-founder Rolf Wojtech impressively presented the various applications of the scalable solid-state LiDAR sensors to the audience.
Blickfeld will demonstrate its automotive-grade LiDAR sensors at the Consumer Electronics Show 2020 in Las Vegas. The Munich-based startup will show a live demo of its LiDAR suite, consisting of its two Blickfeld sensors, the Cube and Cube Range in the Smart City exhibition area as well as in a live car demo.
Blickfeld is introducing the latest member of its product family. With the Cube Range, the company is launching a MEMS-based LiDAR sensor for extended detection of objects at a distance of up to 250 meters. In combination with the well-established Blickfeld Cube, Blickfeld now offers a full LiDAR suite for autonomous vehicles.
There was much talk, writing and discussion about this year’s IAA. There were lively and excited debates about a necessary change of the trade fair format as well as the entire industry. Blickfeld was on site with two booths. We would like to share our firsthand experience: here’s our impression.
Blickfeld has been awarded 100,000 Euro for achieving first place in the “Start me up!” contest, which is organized by the business magazine BILANZ. The Munich-based start-up competed with a total of 1,200 applicants, ten of whom had reached the final round.
Blickfeld and Koito Manufacturing, the leading global tier-one supplier of exterior automotive lighting, announced today that they will explore technologies to develop a LiDAR sensor that can be fully integrated into a headlight.
