SICK Tim310-1030000 scans the perimeter of its surroundings at a single plane with the aid of laser beams. The TiM3xx measures its surroundings using two-dimensional polar coordinates based on its measurement origin.
This is marked on the hood in the centre using a circular indentation. If a laser beam hits an object, its position in terms of distance and direction is determined.
Scanning is performed across a 270° sector. The maximum range of the TiM3xx is 4 m (13.12 ft) on light, natural surfaces with an object reflectivity > 50 % (e.g. a white house wall).

Distance measurement
The TiM3xx emits pulsed laser beams using a laser diode. If one of these laser pulses hits an object or a person, this is reflected at its surface. The reflection is detected in the TiM3xx's receiver by a photodiode. The TiM3xx uses HDDM technology (High Definition Distance Measurement), a SICK own-development. Using this measurement method, a measured value is formed by the average value for several individual pulses. The TiM3xx calculates the distance to the object from the transit time required by the light from emission of the beam to receipt of the reflection. This principle of "time-of-flight measurement" is used by radar systems in a similar manner.

Direction measurement
The emitted laser beams are deflected by the TiM3xx using a rotating mirror and its surroundings scanned in a circular form. The measurements are triggered internally at regular
angle increments using an angular encoder.
The TiM3xx scans at a scanning frequency of 15 Hz. The measurement method forms an
average value from several pulses to determine individual measured values.
At an angle resolution of 1°, a measuring point is formed from the average of 84 measurements. The spot geometry of the submeasuring points is virtually circular whereas a measuring point has the form of a narrow rectangle due to overlapping
