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.
AR1000 Laser Distance Sensor
The Acuity AR1000 laser distance sensor can measure up to 30 meters on natural targets and up to 150 meters with a retroreflective target with an accuracy of ± 3 mm. This rugged sensor is built for tough, industrial environments and applications such as fill level measurement and material height monitoring.
