TeraRanger Advantages

Using LED Time-of-Flight, Terabee technology (branded TeraRanger) includes small, lightweight and high-performance distance and ranging sensors for drone operations. The maximum reading distance is up to 60 meters and for some TeraRanger Time-of-Flight sensors data update rates can be as high as 1000 readings per second. Typical weight of a sensor is just 8 to 12 grams. TeraRanger offers plug and play simplicity and cross-talk avoidance when using multiple sensors.
