The Function Principle of Pulse Ranging Technology (PRT)

With this method of measurement, a powerful light source emits short, high-energy pulses, which are reflected by the object and then recaptured by a light-sensitive receiver.

During this process, the emission and reception times are detected with a high degree of precision. From the values determined, the distance to the object is calculated using the runtime of the light pulses. If the object is close, the light propagation time is short. If the object is further away, the light propagation time is longer.

With state-of-the-art technologies, the distance sensors offer the highest levels of precision and reliability ...
