Paper Abstract

The Optical Radar System (ORAS) provides a complete set of data to derive three-dimensional surface contours of bodies or of body-like scenes primarily in industrial environment. In addition, the intensity as back-scattered from the object is recorded in order to create combined (3-D and conventional) images for special tasks in object characterization. ORAS as described in this paper is based on the time of flight principle. Its specifications, measurement results and applications are presented.
