3D laser sensor is a real-time remote sensor which offers 3D images of scenes. In this paper, we demonstrate a new concept of the pulsed 3D laser sensor with 2D scanning of a transmitting beam and a scan-less receiver. The system achieves the fast and long-range 3D imaging with a relatively simple system configuration. We newly developed a highaspect APD array, a receiver IC, and a range and intensity detector. By combining these devices, we realized a 160 × 120 pixels range imaging with an on-line frame rate of 8 Hz at a distance of about 50 m.
