TOF Developer Conference 2019, San Francisco

January 2019, 29 – 31

Mission Bay Conference Center at UCSF

After a very successful start to the TOF Academy program in Zurich in August 2018, ESPROS will launch this event in January in San Francisco, USA. Under the new name ‘TOF Developer Conference’, we will held this event from January 29-31, 2019 at Mission Bay Conference Center at UCSF.

Course objective

There is, at least to our knowledge, no engineering school which addresses TOF and LiDAR as an own discipline. We at ESPROS decided to fill the gap with a training program called TOF Devel- oper Conference. 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 Developer Conference shall become the enabler for electronics engineers (BS and MS in EE engi- neering) to design working TOF systems. It is ideally for engineers who are or will be, involved in the design of TOF system. We hope that our initiative helps to close the gap between the desire of TOF sensors to massively deployed TOF applications.

Course topics

TOF history; TOF principles; main parts of a TOF camera; relevant optical physics; light detection; receiver physics; noise considerations; SNR; light emission and light sources; eye safety; light power budget calculation; optics basics; optical systems and key requirements; bringing it all together;  electronics, PCB layout guidelines; power considerations; calibration and compensation; filtering computing power requirements; interference detection and suppression; artifacts and how to deal with them; practical lab experiments; Q&A; much more…
