3D TOF Sensor Module

August 31, 2020 by Omron Electronic Components

The B5L is a TOF method-based distance image sensor module that offers real-time 3D sensing of distance to humans or objects.

Introducing the assembly type TOF Sensor, a product that brings together all of OMRON’s technologies: optical design, circuit design, and software. 



A TOF (Time of Flight) sensor uses the flight time of light to measure distances to objects. As well as being able to turn captured images into 3D images, it can also measure at a speed of 20 frames per second, allowing it to track the movement of objects three-dimensionally. The module works for applications that require extensive distance information. The inclusion of an interference prevention function allows the use of multiple devices at once.
