Described is a new range finder using a self-mixing laser diode (SM-LD). The range finder has a high accuracy of ±0.15% and a wide dynamic range of 0.2-1 m using only one sensor head. Compared to ultrasonic range finders, the light beam of this laser range finder can be focused and scanned. The feasibility study shows a possible application of the range finder to a visual sensor of a robot. The proposed range finder has been successfully applied as an infrared (IR) active type range finder of a single-lens reflex camera
