The BeamScrambler is an advanced optical measurement tool specifically designed for testing and calibrating LiDAR sensors across a wide range of performance parameters.
It offers our customers in production, during installation on vehicles and in the aftermarket validation a groundbreaking opportunity with its high-speed testing, exceptional measurement capabilities, compact footprint and flexibility.
Direct measurement of LiDAR (ToF, FMCW,...) key performance parameter in a single measurement system
(Range, Resolution, Channel specific pointing, Eye Safety, Field of View, etc.)
Ultra-Fast (CT ≤ 10sec/LiDAR), one shot full FOV measurement at multiple ranges
Compact footprint (≤ 1m²) and fully automated test system which can be integrated in production lines
Testing under real-world environmental conditions
(Snow, Rain, Fog, Splash, Dust and other performance limiting factors)
The LiDAR - a key enabling technology
LiDAR stands for Light Detection And Ranging and it is a key enabling technology for fully autonomous vehicles.
It is a remote sensing technology that uses laser light to measure distances to objects and create 3D representations of the environment. LiDAR systems emit laser pulses that bounce off objects and return to the sensor, allowing the system to calculate the distance to the objects.
By scanning the laser in different directions, LiDAR can create a detailed 3D map of the surrounding environment, which has a wide range of applications, including autonomous vehicles, aerial mapping, and environmental monitoring.
The 3D map is used by vehicle ECUs to analyze and make decisions regarding the behavior of the vehicle, whether it's ADAS or fully autonomous.
The LiDAR market is expected to reach $2.3B in 2026 and is growing at a CAGR(2021-2026) of 93.6%. This growth is attributed to the increasing adoption of LiDAR technology in autonomous vehicles, as well as other applications such as aerial mapping, urban planning, and environmental monitoring.

Hanover - IPeG
The Institute of Product Development (IPeG) at Leibniz University Hanover is a research institution focused on optomechatronic devices and additive manufacturing.
The IPeG collaborates with industry partners to transfer research to application.
The Institutes research areas include digitalization in product development, additive manufacturing, mechatronic systems, robotics and automation, and sustainable product development.
Its main goal is to explore innovative solutions, advance technologies, and contribute to the education of professionals in product development.
SCRAMBLUX was established in 2022 in Hamburg, Germany as a reaction to the strong demand from the automotive industry for a compact and efficient LiDAR sensor test and calibration solution for mass production.
We did this by inventing a solution that mixes a patented optical instrument from 1817 with state-of-the art digital and AI technology to build a completely new and innovative instrument.
As founders, we have embraced the challenge of developing a unique, innovative and easy to use solution with the goal to revolutionize the testing and calibration for LiDAR sensors.
ELAS Technologies Investment GmbH, our seed investor, supported us at the outset of our journey, and in April 2023, we filed our first patent for the solution.
