The left chart shows the adjusted detection distance compared to the actual sensing distance for white, gray, and black objects using a BGS sensor with a visible red light source. At an adjusted distance of 700mm, the measured sensing distance varies by ~150mm depending on what color is present. The right chart shows the same for a BGS sensor with an infrared source. This results in a sensing distance variation by color that can be just one third that of visible red versions, at the same distance.
Time was when sports equipment was made only from common, everyday, low-tech materials. But now sports equipment has a new, high-tech ingredient that is helping players take their game to the next level.
