Time-of-Flight Scanners

Time-of-flight scanners emit a pulse of light and measure the amount of time it takes to travel from the scanner to the object and back allowing the scanner to calculate the distance. The key benefit of this type of laser scanning technology is its capability of capturing data at a longer range.

Phase-Based Scanners

Phase-based scanners utilize a constant beam of laser energy that is emitted from the scanner. The change of phase of the laser light is measured by the imager to calculate distances.
