Light Detection and Ranging or LIDAR is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure distance. LIDAR sensors provide navigation and localization for autonomous ground robots.
Hokuyo UTM-30LX-EW scanning laser range finder (LiDAR) with an extended sensing range to 30 meters. Interface is Ethernet and scanning rate is 25 milliseconds across a 270° range. Detectable in snowy, rainy, foggy and dusty conditions.
This is a programmable autonomous robot prebuilt kit that can be controlled via Gamepad. The MarvelMind IPS (Indoor Positioning System) provides indoor navigation. BeagleBone Black (Rev C) microcontroller provides the most flexible platform possible.
