The DASA Laser Range Camera is a novel sensor that can be used to capture range images over distances from 0.5 meters to 30 meters, depending on the configuration. Unlike most laser ranging devices, it captures a whole image at once, rather than scanning point by point. The laser can be used indoors and outdoors and has no movable mechanical parts. It was developed to assist in object recognition, measurement of distances to objects, navigation, and process automation. This paper describes a set of indoor and outdoor tests on the DASA Laser Ranger, and presents an evaluation of the ranging capabilities of the camera.
