Title (EN) TIME-OF-FLIGHT DISTANCE MEASURING DEVICE AND METHOD FOR DETECTING MULTIPATH ERROR
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE MESURE DE DISTANCE PAR TEMPS DE VOL ET PROCÉDÉ DE DÉTECTION D'ERREUR MULTIVOIE
Abstract:
(EN) The present disclosure relates to a time-of-flight distance measuring device. The light source (24) includes a plurality of emitting portions (70, 72), each of which illuminates a respective one of the sub-regions (R1, R2). The light receiver (26) includes a plurality of receiving portions (74, 76) corresponding to respective ones of the emitting portions (70, 72). The first controller (28) controls (i) a first emitting portion (70) to emit the emitted light including an Nth-order harmonic component of a fundamental frequency and (ii) a second emitting portion (72) to emit the emitted light including an Mth-order harmonic component. The second controller (30) controls a particular receiving portion (74) corresponding to the first emitting portion (70) to be sensible to the Nth-order Mth-order harmonic components. The multipath detector (82) detects occurrence of the multipath error when the particular receiving portion (74) senses both the Nth-order and Mth-order components.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un dispositif de mesure de distance par temps de vol. La source de lumière (24) comprend une pluralité de parties émettrices (70, 72), chacune desquelles éclairant une sous-région respective des sous-régions (R1, R2). Le récepteur de lumière (26) comprend une pluralité de parties réceptrices (74, 76) correspondant à chacune des parties émettrices (70, 72). Le premier dispositif de commande (28) commande (i) une première partie émettrice (70) pour émettre la lumière émise comprenant une composante harmonique de Nième ordre d'une fréquence fondamentale et (ii) une seconde partie émettrice (72) pour émettre la lumière émise comprenant une composante harmonique de Mième ordre. Le second dispositif de commande (30) commande une partie de réception particulière (74) correspondant à la première partie émettrice (70) de façon à être sensible aux composantes harmoniques de Nième ordre et de Mième ordre. Le détecteur multivoie (82) détecte l'apparition de l'erreur multivoie lorsque la partie de réception particulière (74) détecte à la fois les composantes harmoniques de Nième ordre et de Mième ordre.
