I am trying to set up a LidarLite sensor from PulsedLight.
I set it up according to the wiki (new sensor, manufactured Feb 2015, interfaced with a Pixhawk)
In the wiki it points to the Flight Data Screen to test the sensor,
but I only get zero as reading in this window.
But if I check in the terminal,
I can see that the sensor is working (see attached file),
so is it working ok? Is the wiki wrong?
Thanks a lot,
I was hoping some of you might have more information about what is happening with the Lidar-Lite products?
They were bought by Garmin recently: Garmin® Completes Acquisition of PulsedLight®
Is there any information available about the status of their current and future UAV products?
Best I know, they unfortunately stopped production. It's not clear if Lidar Lite as a product will fit into Garmin's line-up, or if the technology will be integrated into other devices.
this is the answer from PulsedLight:
You’ve contacted PulsedLight Inc’s LIDAR-Lite help. PulsedLight was recently acquired by Garmin International and is working to transfer engineering and production to Garmin.
Robot shop was showing V2 as back ordered, still I went ahead and ordered it hoping to get it when it is back in stock. This was quiet a while back. However few days back I received a mail from robot shop stating that V2 is no more in production and garmin is working on V3 which will be available soon.
