A survey of sensor types and application strategies for optical range sensors has been presented. Experience from realised sensor-guided robot system show that range sensors are exremely suitable in robot applications, where information on depth or surface orientation is needed. By using sensor applications strategies, complex tasks can even be solved with simple and low cost sensors. Since most handling tasks require depth information, the importance of optical range sensors for robot guidance will increase in the near future.
