Marc Rioux National Research Council, Canada Institute for Information Technology Visual Information Technology Ottawa, Canada, K1A 0R6 Abstract. We review some usual laser range finding techniques for industrial applications. After outlining the basic principles of triangulation and time of flight [pulsed, phase-shift and frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW)], we discuss their respective fundamental limitations. Selected examples of traditional and new applications are also briefly… CONTINUE READING
