Basler’s Time-of-Flight Camera

Basler’s Time-of-Flight (ToF) Camera provides you with a 2D and a 3D image in one shot. The Basler ToF Camera offers an attractive solution for a wide variety of applications including logistics, factory automation, and biometrics.
How Does a ToF Camera Work?
The measurement principle is based on the time the light needs to travel from the light source to the object and back to the camera; the further the distance, the longer the time taken. Both light source and image acquisition are synchronized in such a way that the distances can be extracted and calculated from the image data.
