We introduce the concept of using a laser range finder array to measure height and tilt for mobile robotics applications. We then present a robust, scalable algorithm for extracting height and tilt measurements from the range finder data. We calibrate the sensors using a precision two-axis system, and evaluate the capabilities of the sensors. Finally, we utilize the sensors and the two-axis system for imaging to illustrate their accuracy.
