Time-of-flight principle

With the principle of the measurement of the light propagation time, a laser diode in the sensor produces a short laser pulse which is projected onto the Measurement object . The light reflected from the measurement object is detected by the Sensor element. The measurement distance is derived from the propagation time of the light pulse to the Measurement object and back.
