The LIDAR-Lite v3 is here, and it's glorious! LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is an incredibly precise form of distance measurement and the new v3 sensor from Garmin™ is better than ever.
So what makes these LIDAR sensors so special? Well, their 40m detection range using laser optics is achieved with a current draw of less than 130mA while sensing. You can tweak the base configuration for the optimum balance between accuracy, range, and the time required to take measurements.
The LIDAR-Lite v3 operates on 5V DC which makes it even easier to interface for DIY projects with Arduino, Teensy, Particle, and much more! You can interface to the sensor using an I2C bus or via PWM controls, and it's low power consumption and micro form factor makes it perfect for wearables, drones, and much more.
It's a Class 1 device which makes it nice and safe to use, however, modification to the sensor isn't recommended as operation without the optical lenses and/or housing can cause direct laser radiation exposure. Whilst Class 1 devices are safe for general usage, as with any form of high intensity light (visible or not), never look directly at the emitter!
Each LIDAR-Lite v3 features an edge-emitting, 905nm (1.3 watts), single-stripe laser transmitter, 4m Radian x 2m Radian beam divergence, and an optical aperture of 12.5mm.
