The PERCEPTRON LASAR System is based on light detection and ranging (LIDAR) technology. Non-contact laser datacameras provide true 3D images which eliminate depth ambiguities and make previously difficult or even impossible robot guidance applications feasible. THE LASAR DATACAMERA In standard 2D intensity images factors like complex image structure shadows and highlights combined with the lack of depth information (along the Z axis) make it extremely difficult to extract features robustly. In contrast with 3D range images generated by a LASAR datacamera the depth information is measured directly and reported in a digital image format. Field of View The LASAR datacamera is available with measurement working depths (Z axis) from 2 m to 40 m. 214 ISPIE Vol. 2271 O-8194-1595-2/94/$6.
