1. A range image sensor comprising a plurality of range sensors (P A1 to P AM; P B1 to P BN) disposed in a one-dimensional direction (A), wherein each of the plurality of range sensors comprises:

a charge-generating region generating charges in accordance with incident light;

a first and a second signal charge-accumulating regions (FD1, FD2) disposed away from the charge-generating region to sandwich the charge-generating region in the one-dimensional direction, and accumulating the charges generated in the charge-generating region as signal charges;

a first transfer electrode (TX1) disposed between the first signal charge-accumulating region (FD1) and the charge-generating region and configured to allow the charges generated in the charge-generating region to flow into the first signal charge-accumulating region as the signal charges in accordance with a first transfer signal; and

a second transfer electrode (TX2) disposed between the second signal charge-accumulating region (FD2) and the charge-generating region and configured to allow the charges generated in the charge-generating region to flow into the second signal charge-accumulating region as the signal charges in accordance with a second transfer signal different in phase from the first transfer signal,

characterized in that

in any three of the range sensors consecutively aligned in the one-dimensional direction, two first signal charge-accumulating regions of different range sensors or two second signal charge-accumulating regions of different range sensors are adjacent to each other in the one-dimensional direction in a range sensor positioned in a center of the three range sensors and a range sensor positioned closer to one side of the one-dimensional direction than the range sensor positioned in the center of the three range sensors, and two first signal charge-accumulating region and the second signal charge-accumulating region of different range sensors are adjacent to each other in the one-dimensional direction in the range sensor positioned in the center of the three range sensors and a range sensor positioned closer to an another side of the one-dimensional direction than the range sensor positioned in the center of the three range sensors.
