  • TenzinR, user Chenglung showed data from his unit going out to 6 meters (~18 feet). You can see the graph here:

    Lew, in the original publication describing the unit Neato said they were going to use a short range RF modem to communicate without the slipring. In the production models it looks like they moved to a slipring - presumably for pricing reasons (or maybe FCC issues?)
  • I know one of the limitations (price-wise) of "cheap" LIDAR is the slip ring. I'm wondering... couldn't they use a Mercotak connector in place of the slip ring?
    Slip Ring - Mercotac Brushless Slip Rings
    Replace ordinary brush slip rings with brushless, rotating electrical connectors from Mercotac, Inc., and enjoy increased reliability and longer prod…
  • How far can this laser detect up to?
