Laser Time-of-flight

"Time-of-flight systems measure the time for a pulse of light to travel to a surface and return, then calculate distance from the constant speed of light."

This tutorial gives an overview of time-of-flight distance measurement. It starts with a brief description of what the technique does and typical applications. Further detail is then given on how these systems work, and some of their benefits and limitations.
