LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Sept. 23, 2016 — Actlight SA has announced its low-voltage time-of-flight sensing technology based on dynamic photodiodes.
When used in range meters, the technology offers good immunity from the effects of background light, especially direct sunlight. It is suited to supplement existing optical and computer vision technologies, helping to overcome the hindrance of direct sunlight and other optical artifacts.
Compared to avalanche photodiodes, the technology features low operation voltage, simplified electronics and a smaller footprint. Applications include miniaturized wearable devices, autonomous vehicles and aerial drones.
