Time of flight.  Just like sonar, but MUCH faster.

Not always. A cheaper approach is to modulate the light beam, and then
compare the phase of the return beam with an internal reference beam (or
clock). Sometimes referred to as tone ranging. Yet another type, more
suitable for shorter distances (say, up to 50-60 feet), uses
interferometric methods, and are accurate to a quarter wavelength.

Leica's DISTO transits use phase measurement. They'd be much more
expensive if they used time-of-flight.

Gordon,

I thought the DISTO was time of flight.  When using the phase technique or
the interferometric method, is it still possible to use a servo mounted
45degree mirror to "pan" the beam around or does it mess up the measurement?
I have been planning to use a DISTO on a future robot project.

Try the Sharp GP2D12 sensors.
