Three-dimensional detection and evaluation

The 3D camera, on the basis of pmd technology, detects scenes and objects at a glance in three dimensions. In contrast to laser scanners it does not require moving components and is thus robust and wear-free. The function principle, the time of flight technology (ToF), can be compared to a laser scanner. However, instead of one there are 23,000 receiving elements arranged on the chip as a matrix.

That means that not only one point but a complete scene is measured in only one capture. Besides the distance image the camera also provides a grey-scale image of the scene. Intuitive parameter setting software allows easy setting of the camera-specific parameters. Furthermore a software development kit with example program code in different languages is available.
