At that time BASF said it had a created a single-lens passive optical sensor that can measure the distance to an object and thereby detect 3D position and perform 3D imaging (see BASF develops simple 3D image sensor).

The TrinamiX’ website is under and development but states the company is "developing the most versatile sensor system for adaptive 3D measurement" under the name XperYenZ, which clearly references the dimensions x, y and z.

The sensor is based on a "new physical effect" enabled by the use of specially developed dye-sensitized organic light sensitive chemicals. The effect is described in patent WO 2012110924 A1.

The sensor could be suitable for a broad range of applications from consumer electronics such as cameras and smartphones to automotive, transportation, medical and machine vision and security and surveillance.
