The SF11/C laser altimeter - awesome performance for $249

With a range in excess of 100m and able to measure over water, the SF11/C is the most cost effective laser altimeter for drones on the market today. Compatibility with Pixhawk and derivative flight controllers and its multiple interfaces including serial, I2C, analog and USB make the SF11/C the easiest plug-and-play solution for altitude holding, terrain following and safe…

Under the hood of the SF40 smart sense-and-avoid LiDAR - part 2

The SF40 controller board

In systems that need precise timing and accurate waveform generation it is sometime necessary to separate out the time-critical elements from the non-realtime processing. Even though interrupts and realtime operating systems can improve the timing response of a processor system, microprocessors are…

Under the hood of the SF40 smart sense-and-avoid LiDAR

The SF40 - upside down :)

The SF40 is a smart sense-and-avoid system that detects obstacles near autonomous vehicles and determines the safest route past them. On-board data analysis reduces the need for complicated processing by an external computer. The built in analytical tools can sense the presence and position of…
