Software – TOF ECO System


The software runs the camera operation. It is a good concept, to implement a modular operating system. It should be divided into the following sections:

  • Imager control
  • Image acquisition
  • Distance calculation
  • Error compensation
  • Temporal filtering
  • Spatial filtering
  • Lens properties data transformation
  • Camera calibration
  • Functional safety functions

ESPROS provides a TOF Camera Operating System TOFCOS. It contains all aforementioned functions in source code.

Rules of thumb:

  • Make your software modular
  • Use ESPROS’ TOFCOS as an example
