What exactly is Basler’s Time-of-Flight camera?

A ToF camera delivers 3D image information and helps to solve tasks where 2D data isn’t enough. For inspection tasks in low-contrast situations or varying light conditions in particular, 3D technology offers an added dimension for capturing the properties needed for measurement. Factory automation, robotics and logistics are often used in applications where 3D image data can effectively supplement 2D data. Thies Moeller explains how this kind of camera works. Beyond this, he describes the benefits inherent to this camera, as well as influencing factors that can diminish the effectiveness of a ToF camera.
