The article offers updates on the progress and development of sensors and sensing devices. It notes that double-pulse technology and time-of-flight measurements have been already used which have enabled accurate control under difficult conditions on the detection of colour. The use of multiple camera and lighting set-ups, as required in colour image data, two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) information have caused calibration and data-integration difficulties.
