Abstract

We demonstrate a fast tracking system based on single laser illumination and a few single-pixel SPAD detectors that improves on previous tracking of non-line-of-sight motion by a factor of 300 in laser power.With an average illumination power of only 2 mW, we are able to track a 15 × 15 cm object located up to 2.5 m away and moving at approximately six centimetres per second outside of the direct line of sight.
