  • When will the blind Sonar be available for testing?
    Our goal is to guarantee the highest level of reliability and safety before we comprehensively test the system. The first major test series are planned for the fourth quarter of 2024. Until then, we are working hard to perfect the technology and meet all safety standards. However, you can already secure a place on the waiting list so that we can inform you in good time before the product launch.
  • Can you become part of our team?
    Since we are very busy and are always looking for helpers, we are happy to receive any application. We have listed our vacancies , but unsolicited applications are also possible.
