Press Release Summary:
After using Time-of-Flight distance measurement and PMD technology to identify object within 70Â° x 23Â° field of view (made possible via objective lens), 3D Smart SensorÂ can captureÂ said object in three dimensions.Â Sensor can identify multiple targets, moving or stationary, and report their location, size, speed, and relative trajectory withinÂ 35 m range. This provides critical information for distance monitoring, obstacle detection, collision avoidance, and area surveillance on mobile machines.
Original Press Release:
ifm Introduces the 3D Smart Sensor with Patented Photonic Mixing Device (PMD) Technology.
ifm’s 3D Smart Sensor uses Time-of-Flight distance measurement and PMD technology to identify an object in its field of view, capturing the entire object in three dimensions.
The 3D Smart Sensor is your assistant on mobile machines, providing critical information for distance monitoring, obstacle detection, collision avoidance and area surveillance.
Long Range Detection – The 3D Smart Sensor can identify multiple targets, moving or stationary, and report back their location, size, speed and relative trajectory at a sensing range of up to 35 meters.
Large Field of View – Provided by the 3D Smart Sensor’s 70° x 23° objective lens.
Robust and Reliable – The 3D Smart Sensor is built to withstand shock, vibration, temperature fluctuations and moisture.
Easy Set-up – The 3D Smart Sensor’s ‘Vision Assistant’ software enables the user to quickly establish application parameters.
Obstacle detection and crash avoidance for construction machinery
Area surveillance in harsh environments
Automation solutions for agricultural machinery
Height and distance monitoring for airport vehicles
