PMD ToF Camera in Direct Sunlight

PMD posted a Youtube video demoing its CamBoard pico XS in direct sunlight. "The tiny CamBoard pico XS can perform in direct sunlight -- no matter if the sun is shining directly into the lens or fully illuminating the scene. Due to the patented SBI circuitry (suppression of background illumination) pmd Time-of-Flight chips, and respectively pmd-based 3D camera systems, are very robust against ambient light."


  1. I think this is the 2nd. demo they produce operation in sunlight.
    The question is whether they can support it at longer range as well, and with what total power consumption.
