Image sensors for high-precision, real-time distance measurement systems
February 04, 2013 // Julien Happich
Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. has developed three new image sensors that feature a high-speed charge transfer structure in each pixel to enable high-precision TOF (time-of-flight) distance measurements.
The S11961-01CR is believed to be the industry's first linear image sensor for TOF distance measurement, and the S11962-01CR and S11963-01CR are area image sensors for 3D distance-measuring cameras. In addition to conventional detection tasks such as detecting the presence of people or obstacles, the new image sensors provide various types of added functionality including distance measurement and shape detection. They have been designed for use in a wide variety of applications, such as automotive systems for detecting people or obstacles, object detection in semiconductor wafer transfer systems, shape detection by industrial robots, and intruder detection by security systems.
