Im looking for a design of a subject sensor. The unit will be placed 1 to 2 m above water surface on a moving platform and it has measure the water waves to the best possible accuracy.Please advise.
The ToF technology might not be the best solution for this application since water has poor reflectivity characteristics which might lead to larger distance sensing errors. What is the accuracy you are looking for?
Hi ACozma. Thanks to your post. Apologizes for the delayed revert. I was expecting a notification from the forum for any reply posted, Im mistaken.
To answer your question, accuracies Im looking for is about 5 cm in the measurement range of 1m.
Unfortunately measuring distance to the water surface does not seem to work and the desired accuracy will not be met.
