The Honeywell AF system
"Designed by Honeywell for 35 mm cameras (visible light), uses a separate set of detectors and charge coupled devices along with a microprocessor to effect automatic focus. A correlation is performed between sets of detectors utilizing two different, widely separated small areas of the aperture. The technique is based, as in optical rangefinders, on the angular difference between separate receivers in superimposing the same scene. This technique effectively determines not only whether the system is out of focus, but the amount and direction of lens movement required to achieve optimum focus."
