What is a Time of Flight Sensor?
A TOF (Time of Flight) sensor uses the flight time of light to measure distances to objects. As well as being able to turn captured images into 3D images, it can also measure at a speed of 20 frames per second, allowing it to track the movement of objects three-dimensionally.
Differences from a conventional camera sensor
The use of extensive distance information enables the sensor to identify its peripheral environment.
Time of Flight Sensor Features
Introducing the assembly type TOF Sensor,
a product that brings together
all of OMRON’s technologies.
Real-time 3D sensing of distance to humans or objects.
TOF method-based distance image sensor module.
Four Features of OMRON’s 3D TOF Sensor Module
Interfering light immunity
- Ambient light immunity equivalent to 100,000 lx!
Its powerful ambient light immunity ensures stable detection performance free from saturation even in bright places. It is capable of delivering stable detection performance even in direct sunlight.
Achieves high output accuracy for compensated signals.
The TOF Sensor outputs compensated signals to minimize control processing on the end user's actual machine.
- Long life equivalent to 5 years under continuous driving.
Long life is ensured thanks to OMRON’s proprietary circuit design, heat emission design and the adoption of LEDs for the emission elements.
- With interference prevention function (up to 17units)
Ideal for applications that require the use of multiple devices such as robots at the same time.
Time of Flight Sensor Example Applications
