Terabee: Infrared Time-of-Flight versus glass

December 28, 2016 // By Terabee
There is a growing demand to apply distance sensing in conditions where glass is often part of the environment. For light emitting sensors, this particular surface can be a challenge to “detect” or measure, for instance, when approaching at angles other than 90 degrees or working under strong ambient light conditions. In some cases, the signal can go straight through the transparent glass material, or be reflected away, failing to give accurate readings. TeraRanger Duo is specifically designed to solve the problem of measuring “difficult surfaces”.
