"Alejandro, Yes you are correct and we are not at all trying to hide this fact. We used NEW XV-11 lidar units, coupled with a micro controller, motor controller, custom software, other electronics and custom fabricated housing. We simply are putting…"
Thanks so much for all your info and comments. So YES the lidar turret spins externally and this can be a problem if it falls facing that way down. We could put a 'roof' on it but the columns supporting it would block several degrees. BUT we…"
We have no hard data as yet on MTBF. I assume the dc motor component would be the greatest point of failure and they generally have 50000 hours of MTBF. We haven't experienced a failure yet however we've only run them for a few months now.…"
"I'm not quite sure how to answer that question accurately. Bright sunlight or if the laser is hitting a very dark (black / non-reflective object) reduces its accuracy. The 5th data element is the Quality of Signal. As it approaches 0 the distance…"
" The Laser used in this LIDAR unit will not perform very well in bright sunlight or against very BLACK colored objects.
Field of View: X: 360 degrees, 1 degree angular resolutionEffective Range: <6 metersAccuracy: +-2mm on a 10%…"
CHEAP LIDAR: We were looking for an inexpensive LIDAR (laser ranging) solution for a robotics project we were working on. We could not find one so, using the lidar unit for the XV-11, we developed one: PROTOX2D…
