Underwater Time Of Flight Image Acquisition – UTOFIA

A new compact, cost-efficient concept for underwater range-gated imaging system.

UTOFIA, a H2020 project (633098) started in February 2015, will offer a compact and cost-effective underwater imaging system for turbid environments. Using range-gated imaging (Figure 1), the system will extend the imaging range by factor 2 to 3 over conventional video systems. At the same time, the system will provide video-rate 3D information.
