3D ranging technologies generally fall into either position-based (triangulation) or time-based (LIDAR) approaches. Triangulation can provide much higher precision at close to mid-range but degrades quickly with the square of distance. LIDARs can provide reasonable precision over much longer distances but, unlike triangulation, they do not improve in capabilities at short range where precision and speed are critical for many applications such as autonomous rendezvous and docking, guidance and… CONTINUE READING
