Know more about Lidar

Lidar is a sensor that measures the distance to a target by illuminating the target with laser light and measuring the reflected pulses with appropriate data acquisition electronics. To form image, multiple beams of light can be rotated with the corresponding receiver and data acquisition circuitry, so generating the point cloud data, Alternatively single beam can be swept across the scene at very high speed.

RUBY 3D Lidar

A 3D Lidar aimed primarily at the automotive market but could be of use in any application that needs 3D high resolution images with up to 360° visibility.

Managing Director


Ian co-founder of this Organization with the aim of bringing novel 3D electro-optical sensing solutions to a wide range of industries. Ian originally carried out his Ph.D. research in the early days of wind turbines for power generation which nowadays are making a significant contribution to our electricity needs.

For much of his career, he has worked in the field of optical and laser measurement sensors for a variety of different applications. These include ultra-high precision optical metrology for the automotive industry and semi-conductor industries, laser navigation sensors for AGVs and vessel position sensing in the marine sector.

Ian is a multi-disciplinary engineer and is the primary inventor on several patents in the field of electro-optics and laser metrology.

He has worked at a technical and director level in the Guidance group of companies, two of which have been successfully sold to larger groups. An exit after the most recent sale led to the opportunity to set up Red Sensors.


John co-founder of this organization having successfully developed a series of technology companies over 25 years.
He started with Guidance, which he co-founded starting in the robot vehicle market Guidance became a global supplier. John then identified a potential opportunity to supply laser position reference sensors into the marine market, This opportunity developed into the company. Guidance Marine with over 100 employees, offices in the UK, USA, and Singapore.

Once the marine business was established, John moved to a new company Guidance Monitoring, working in the Offender Monitoring market. Guidance Monitoring’s product bespoke was bespoke body-worn tracking devices used to report an offender’s compliance to court-imposed restrictions.
These, included home detention, tracking, alcohol monitoring, and systems used to safeguard victims of domestic violence.

John worked as Chief Technology Officer in G4S from 2012 to 2017 leading the development of people monitoring technology. He also took on the commercial and technical directorship of the national French Offender Monitoring contract between 2013 to 2017. Both were successfully renewed before he left in 2017

John left G4S in 2017, to co-found of this company.

Technical Director


Dave has a Ph.D. in Optical Sensor Modelling, followed by over 16 years of direct engineering experience. Extensive knowledge of sensor data fusion, from mathematical algorithm development and sensor model building in Matlab and other offline tools to implementation on embedded platforms, to hardware testing and database design.

He has been instrumental in leading a number of optical and other sensor projects.

For the past fifteen years, the focus of these projects has been navigation and sensing, primarily for autonomy.

Dave has successfully led project teams of engineers (software, mechanical and electronic) to identify customers’ needs, developing and implementing practical engineering solutions.

Dave brings a wealth of experience to this Sensors company and is leading on the sensor modelling and interfacing activity.


we won innovate UK award for its novel low cost, high performance, Precision Laser and 3D LiDAR solution

Innovate UK

Innovate UK – Emerging and Enabling Technologies Round 1 – Winner

The lack of a reliable low-cost Precision Laser and  3D Lidar with 360° scanning capabilities, has restricted the widespread adoption of this critical 3D mapping and tracking technology.

The Innovate UK Award recognizes our winning design which provides a solution to the challenges facing the sensor industry by providing a low cost, reliable, 360° real-time multi-beam scanning solution for use in multiple markets.
