Laser Rangefinders Are Used to Measure Human Height


A Laser Can Be Affixed to The Ceiling, Measuring Anyone Who Passes Beneath

Science museums hosting interactive exhibits that measure human height use Acuity AR1000 laser distance sensors to automatically measure a person’s height. The sensor is affixed to the ceiling and aimed to the floor. When a person stands beneath the laser’s path, their height is automatically displayed.

Acuity lasers are also being used at amusement parks and doctor’s offices to accurately verify customer/patient heights.
