Title (EN) DISTANCE MEASURING APPARATUS AND DISTANCE MEASURING METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL DE MESURE DE DISTANCE ET PROCÉDÉ DE MESURE DE DISTANCE
(JA) 測距装置および測距方法
Abstract:
(EN) This distance measuring apparatus (1) is provided with at least one measuring unit (10), the measuring unit (10) being provided with: a first light receiving unit (101) made up of a plurality of light receiving elements (105) of the photon counting type connected with one another; a first conversion unit (102) that converts an electric current outputted from the first light receiving unit (101) into a voltage; a first amplification unit (103) that outputs an amplified value obtained by amplifying the voltage outputted from the first conversion unit (102), and, when the amplified value exceeds a predetermined limit value, outputs the limit value; and a first measuring unit (104) that measures a time at which the value outputted from the first amplification unit (103) reaches a predetermined threshold value.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil de mesure de distance (1) qui comprend au moins une unité de mesure (10), l'unité de mesure (10) comprenant : une première unité de réception de lumière (101) constituée d'une pluralité d'éléments de réception de lumière (105) du type à comptage de photons, reliés l'un à l'autre ; une première unité de conversion (102) qui convertit un courant électrique délivré par la première unité de réception de lumière (101) en une tension ; une première unité d'amplification (103) qui délivre une valeur amplifiée obtenue par amplification de la tension délivrée par la première unité de conversion (102) et, lorsque la valeur amplifiée dépasse une valeur de limite prédéterminée, délivre la valeur de limite ; et une première unité de mesure (104) qui mesure un temps auquel la valeur délivrée par la première unité d'amplification (103) atteint une valeur de seuil prédéterminée.
(JA) 測距装置(1)は、少なくとも1つの計測ユニット(10)を備え、計測ユニット(10)は、複数のフォトンカウント型受光素子(105)が接続されて成る第1の受光部(101)と、第1の受光部(101)から出力される電流を電圧に変換する第1の変換部(102)と、第1の変換部(102)から出力される電圧を増幅した増幅値を出力し、該増幅値が所定の制限値を超える場合には、該制限値で出力する第1の増幅部(103)と、第1の増幅部(103)からの出力値が所定の閾値に達するタイミングを計測する第1の計測部(104)とを備える。
