To our knowledge, there is no engineering school which addresses TOF and LiDAR as their own disciplines. We at ESPROS decided to fill the gap with a training program called TOF Academy. The objective is to provide a solid theoretical background, a guideline to working implementations based on examples, and practical work with TOF systems. Thus, the TOF Academy shall become the enabler for electronics engineers (BS and MS in EE engineering) to design working TOF systems. It is ideally for engineers who have, or will have, the responsibility to design a TOF system. We hope that our initiative helps to close the gap between the desire for TOF sensors and the realisation of widely-deployed TOF applications.
