Optical Triangulation

"Single point optical triangulation is an easy to use method of measuring distances to objects without touching them and requires little operator knowledge or supervision."

This tutorial gives an overview of single point optical triangulation. It starts with a brief description of what the technique does and typical applications. Further detail is then given about how it works, what sensor is used, benefits and limitations, how to select an instrument, and some example specifications and applications.
