This sensor technology is ideally suited for any project requiring very compact, low power, high performance distance measurement sensors, such as drones, robots, or unmanned vehicles.
PulsedLight’s novel signal processing technology enables them to offer a low-cost optical distance measurement solution with performance comparable to systems costing hundreds of dollars.
This optical distance measurement sensor is capable of measuring out to 40 meters using inexpensive, off-the-shelf, electro-optical components. The MiniModule employs the basic principles behind ToF to measure distance. However, a unique signal processing approach has been developed to determine the time delay between an encoded transmit signal and its return.
