A system and method are provided using a photodetector array for producing an output signal which is compensated for the effects of ambient light, photodetector bias, and the like, wherein the output signal contains information indicative of the position of the object. The preferred embodiment is useful for vehicular wheel alignment and includes left and right wheel units for coupling to respective left and right steerable wheels of a vehicle, and a central microcomputer and CRT display operably coupled with each wheel unit. Each preferred wheel unit inc...


An apparatus for determining the position of an object, comprising: a source of an electromagnetic radiation beam; an array of spaced, electromagnetic radiation beam detectors for said beam, each detector including detector signal producing means associated therewith for producing a variable magnitude detector signal in response to the intensity of electromagnetic radiation impinging thereon, said detector signal being subject to a signal bias due to the effects of ambient light, detector bias, or the like; means mounting one of said source and array in ...
