Laser scan sensor
The configuration includes a laser range finder (110), a scan mechanism (120), a distance-data acquiring unit (130), a memory (160), which stores installation state information and detection-area information for each measurement direction, a human-body determining unit (140), a detection area-information updater (140), which updates detection-area information under a predetermined condition, and the alert-output control unit (150). The human-body determining unit (140) extracts a portion that possibly corresponds to a human body in an object that has invaded or moved, which is found out by comparison with the detection-area information based on the acquired distance information, and determines whether or not a rest of the respective extracted portions is a human body based on a movement state of each of the extracted portion in chronological order.
