Indoor active triangulation to laser spots generated by quasi-cylindrical cavity is demonstrated. Principal ray trajectory is modeled using a system of linear equations and fundamental ray geometry. Each ray’s unique outgoing angle and baseline is calculated and used to derive the range to the corresponding spot. Above 98% accuracy is achieved over an approximate range of 5m, demonstrating a novel motionless laser scanning technique with a wide scanned angle and no moving parts.
