laser triangulation

A technique that uses a solid-state laser and a detector to determine an object's relative distance to the system. The laser beam is projected onto the target and then reflected onto a detector through the means of focusing optics. When the laser beam moves on the detector, information is stored into binary code to later be processed and used for calculating the relative distance.
