Our Story

Flasheye was founded by Ulf Lindström in Kiruna, the most north of Sweden close to the mining companies and heavy industry. The climate above the arctic circle is harsh and mining companies have high requirements on all equipment, when it comes to robustness and performance. Every unplanned stop represent a risk for the workers, huge costs caused by lost production time, and damaged equipment.   

The idea came from a long experience in the mining industry, where Ulf Lindström evaluated different methods for reliable detection of production deviations early, to prevent breakdowns, spillage, and accidents. 3D lidar was the most promising technology and with its long range, the sensors could also monitor the movements between people, machines, and vehicles cost-efficient. The key is Flasheye´s software solution that enables simple plug-and-play installations on-site, with no expert hours and minimal planning. The performance is guaranteed by collaborations with world-leading lidar manufacturers. 

Flasheye is a software company with office in Mobilaris Innovation Center, Luleå. The company is driven by customer projects and innovative product development in the forefront with competences from research, automation, photogrammery, robotics, drones, and process industry. We started in the mining industry but soon the interest from other industries was increasing and today Flasheye serves several industries with lidar-based smart monitoring. The dropped price and increased capacity of lidar sensors unlocks a full view monitoring for safer and smarter sites, cities, and infrastructure overall.
