I will start out by saying that I am in no way associated with this product or its developers or retailers. I just ran across this while researching for another project. It looks very exciting and very affordable price for the claimed capabilities. Late last year while I was in researching for UAV projects to work on, I looked heavily into SLAM for microquads. Indoor navigation is a challenge I am sure that many of you are familiar with. I would love to dive into this project but it is easily second quarter next year before I would have time. I hope that this RPLIDAR helps anyone looking into lidar development. Thank you for following the Aerial Vista Challenge Team Blog and we will have a team update this week.
