Generalization of the problem of indirectly measuring the distance to a reflecting surface

  • V. V. Pitsyk


A general approach is considered to solving the problem of indirectly measuring the distance from an object to a reflecting surface in a given direction. A mathematical formulation of the problem is presented with its general and partial solutions under different conditions. A scheme for applying the method of distance measurement is considered, based on the solution obtained. The accuracy of the method is estimated.
