  • Now we just need a LIDAR unit with long range 360 degree FOV and we've got our sense and avoid tech worked out.

    I know the folks at Neato Robitics who have a miniaturized LIDAR that could sell for $30 retail. If anyone is interested I could ask them more about it.
  • When did your order ship?
  • 3D Robotics
    Here's one for $2,375. Just 5oz...

  • Chris,
    In this video there is small shot of Agra's flying ground of MAV2008, I was available there at that time, along with Major Sharma. I have even the video of that event in my handycam.

    Very very impressive stuff.
  • R314-HOKUYO-LASER4.jpg

    Price: $5590.00
    Weight: 2.00 lbs
    30m range

    For $10,000 you can probably fly underwater.
  • Actually, it's a Hokuyo UTM30-LX. Details on the MIT vehicle, as well as the other entries (including Embry-Riddle) are on the IARC website.
  • It appears to be a Hokuyo URG-04LN
  • MIT took this year 10K IARC prize, who's will be next? It will be interesting to know about type of laser scanner they are using - looking for a while, but can not find anything definitive about type (they say it is 32 yard range)
