I’m a new member and neither a native English speaker, nor an arduino native.
I want to measure the height (position) of an rotating laser beam. The beam will
rotate in a horizontal level and will touch the sensor several times per second.
The laser will be emitted by an device like “Bosch Professional GRL 400 H”.
The Arduino should process the data from the sensor and do position-corrections
by a linear actor depending on the measured position.
Do you have experience? I need advice in choosing an appropriate sensor.
Maybe CCD or CIS. The resolution must not be fine. An accuracy of 0.5mm is enough.
But the measuring range should be between 10cm and 15cm.
Would be fine, if only red or green laser output is considered and not normal daylight.
Maybe this could be achieve by a filter in front of the sensor.
What sensor do you suggest?
