dotscene GmbH, a Freiburg, Germany-based 3D-mapping proptech startup, closed a financing round of undisclosed amount.
Backers included High-Tech Gründerfonds and BitStone Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to further expand its capacities.
Founded in October 2016 by Dr. Michael Ruhnke, Nicolas Trusch, Andreas Wachaja, Maryan Wieland and Prof. Dr. Burgard, who accompanies the company as Scientific Advisor, dotscene leverages its technology for mobile 3D laser scanning to capture real estate from inside and outside, from the ground and from the air, and provide complete and accurate planning bases for a fraction of the resources previously required.
The company combines 3D laser sensors from the field of autonomous driving and SLAM algorithms (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) of mobile robotics to convert an environment into 3D models. The laser scanning system dotcube 600k developed by dotscene works completely independent of external reference variables such as GPS and can therefore be used on drones, on foot and on vehicles. Based on this technology, the company creates CAD models, floor plans and façade projections for its customers.
dotscene currently employs 11 people.
