LW20/C microLiDAR™ – compact laser scanner

The LW20/C microLiDAR™ is a compact laser scanner designed to provide professional-grade performance for drones, self-driving cars and vehicles, and other robotic platforms.

Measurements can be made up to 100 metres away for long-range remote object detection, and the system provides a rapid scan rate of up to 388 readings per second.

The LW20/C provides driver hardware and software for easy interfacing with servos, enabling the creation of lightweight drone collision avoidance solutions. It can also be used as an altimeter for multirotor UAVs, providing high-accuracy measurements of height above ground level for proximity warning and automated landing systems.

The miniature LiDAR sensor can be easily connected to a wide variety of processors via serial or I2C, and runs from a single 5V power source. A rugged IP67-rated enclosure provides protection against water and dust.
