Advantages of TOF Technology in Pallet Recognition

what does depth sensor do ?


Accurate Depth Measurement

TOF (Time of Flight) technology calculates the distance of objects by measuring the time it takes for light to travel from the source to the object and back. Compared to structured light, TOF technology offers higher precision and stability in depth measurement. While structured light relies on projecting light patterns and capturing images using an image sensor for complex calculations, TOF technology directly measures the flight time of light with an image sensor, reducing computational errors and providing more accurate depth data.


Strong Anti-Interference Ability

TOF technology maintains excellent performance under various lighting conditions. Structured light can struggle with recognition in strong light, shadows, or reflective surfaces, whereas TOF, by directly measuring the flight time of light, is less sensitive to environmental light interference. This allows TOF to perform reliably in complex environments.

High-Speed Real-Time Recognition

TOF cameras can capture and process depth information at very high speeds, making them ideal for pallet recognition applications that require real-time processing. Structured light technology needs image processing to calculate depth information, which is relatively slow. In contrast, TOF technology’s direct measurement approach significantly improves recognition speed, meeting the demands of high-speed industrial automation.

Simple Hardware Structure

TOF systems typically consist of a laser emitter, a receiver, and a timer, resulting in a relatively simple hardware structure. Structured light systems require complex grating projection and high-precision camera equipment, making hardware design and maintenance costly. TOF technology's hardware design is more straightforward, easier to integrate and maintain, reducing the overall complexity and cost of the system.

High Resolution and Wide Field of View

Modern TOF sensors can capture high-resolution and wide-field depth images, covering broader pallet recognition needs. Structured light is limited in balancing field of view and resolution, whereas TOF technology excels in providing high resolution and a wide field of view, performing exceptionally well in extensive pallet recognition tasks.

Compact Size and Easy Integration

TOF sensors are compact, making them easy to integrate into various devices and systems. This flexibility allows TOF technology to be applied in diverse scenarios and equipment, meeting a wide range of pallet recognition requirements.

High Accuracy in Long-Distance Measurement

TOF technology offers higher accuracy in long-distance measurements compared to structured light. Structured light loses measurement precision over long distances due to light diffusion and environmental light interference, while TOF can maintain high precision in long-distance measurements, suitable for extensive pallet recognition tasks.

Performance in Complex Environments

TOF technology performs exceptionally well in complex environments. By measuring the flight time of light, TOF can provide accurate depth information even in environments with multiple obstacles and irregular shapes. Structured light technology, when faced with such complex scenarios, may encounter recognition errors due to light interference and reflection issues.
