Title: SCANNING DEPTH ENGINE
Abstract:
Mapping apparatus (22) includes a transmitter 44, which emits a beam comprising pulses of light, and a scanner (46), which is configured to scan the beam (38), within a predefined scan range, over a scene. A receiver (48) receives the light reflected from the scene and generates an output indicative of a time of flight of the pulses to and from points in the scene. A processor (42) is coupled to control the scanner so as to cause the beam to scan over a selected window (32, 34, 36) within the scan range and to process the output of the receiver so as to generate a 3D map of a part of the scene that is within the selected window.
