Omron’s ToF sensor module offers real-time 3D sensing

Omron’s ToF sensor offers real-time 3D sensing of distance to humans or objects

Omron EMC’s B5L ToF (Time of Flight) sensor uses the flight time of light to measure distances to objects. The B5L ToF sensor is able to turn captured images into 3D images and can measure at a speed of 20 frames per second, allowing it to track the movement of objects three-dimensionally. The B5L TOF sensor uses extensive distance information that enables the sensor to identify its peripheral environment. The B5L ToF sensor offers powerful ambient light immunity to ensure stable detection performance free from saturation even in bright places, achieves high output accuracy for compensated signals, has a long life thanks to Omron’s unique circuit design and heat emission design, and is ideal for applications that require the use of multiple devices (such as robots) at the same time.


  • Ideal for applications that require extensive distance information
  • AMR/service robots
    • Drop detection
    • Environment recognition
    • Periphery recognition
    • Human recognition
  • Logistics and conveyance
    • Volume and shape measurement
    • Empty space detection
  • Monitoring and observation
    • Behavioral understand and observation of patients under long-term care
  • Automatic doors/elevators
    • Counting people
    • Tracking traffic flows


  • Interfering light immunity: ambient light immunity equivalent to 100,000 lx
  • Capable of delivering stable detection performance even in direct sunlight
  • High precision of ±2% (2 m)
  • Outputs compensated signals to minimize control processing on the end user’s actual machine
  • Durable: long life equivalent of five years under continuous driving
  • Interference prevention function (up to 17 units) allows the use of multiple devices at once
