Optical Time-of-Flight Measurement Explained in LeddarTech White Paper


Quebec City, QC -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2015 -- As discussed in a new LeddarTech white paper, optical time-of-flight measurement computes the distance to a target from the round-trip time of flight between a sensor and an object. Since the speed of light in air changes very little over normal temperature and pressure extremes, and its order of magnitude is faster than the speed of objects to be measured, optical time-of-flight measurement is one of the most reliable ways to accurately measure distance to objects in a contactless fashion.

Conventional optical time-of-flight sensors fall into three broad categories: direct time-of-flight, range-gated imaging, and phase detection. Leddar is a new and unique technology for performing time-of-flight measurement.
