A 375 /spl times/ 365 high-speed 3-D range-finding image sensor using row-parallel search architecture and multisampling technique

A high-speed three-dimensional (3-D) image sensor for a 1000 range maps/s 3-D measurement system based on a light-section method is presented. It employs a row-parallel search architecture to achieve a high-speed frame access rate for the detection of activated pixels on the focal plane. The row-parallel search operation is carried out using chained search… CONTINUE READING
