Paper Abstract

A video rate laser range finder based on the autosynchronized scanning approach is presented. This range camera simultaneously provides range and intensity information of a scene in EIA-RS-170 format. A spatial resolution of 420 horizontal lines each having 512 pixels was achieved at a rate of 30 images per second. A wide dynamic range in intensity (16 bits) coupled with drift compensation allows this sensor to achieve a range resolution of 8 bits. The volume of view is 50 x 50 x 50 mm3.
