SF45 – ultra-miniature scanning microLiDAR

Lightweight laser scanner for drones and UGVs

LightWare SF45 microLiDARThe SF45 is an extremely compact and lightweight scanning microLiDAR sensor featuring a 320º field of view and an update rate of up to 20,000 measurements per second.

Designed to provide enhanced 3D depth perception for UAVs and ground robots, it can be mounted either on the top of the side of a vehicle.

The high-accuracy, high-precision microLiDAR delivers reliable performance even under poor weather conditions and dense vegetation. With a scanning range of 50m in bright sunlight, it is ideal for a wide range of applications including altitude measurement, obstacle detection, sense and avoid, and SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping).
