Good News!The newest Low Cost 360 Degree Laser Range Scanner —— RPLIDAR A2 is open for pre-orders.

RPLIDAR A2 is the next generation low cost 360 degree 2D laser scanner (LIDAR) solution developed by SLAMTEC. It can take up to 4000 samples of laser ranging per second with high rotation speed. And equipped with SLAMTEC patented OPTMAG technology, it breakouts the life limitation of traditional LIDAR system so as to work stably for a long time.

The system can perform 2D 360-degree scan within a 6-meter range. The generated 2D point cloud data can be used in mapping, localization and object/environment modeling. 

The typical scanning frequency of the RPLIDAR A2 is 10hz (600rpm). Under this condition, the resolution will be 0.9°. And the actual scanning frequency can be freely adjusted within the 5-15hz range according to the requirements of users.
                                                                RPLIDAR A2 Compared To Former Model

The RPLIDAR A2 adopts the low cost laser triangulation measurement system developed by SLAMTEC, which makes the RPLIDAR A2 has excellent performance in all kinds of indoor environment and outdoor environment without direct sunlight exposure. Meanwhile, before leaving the factory, every RPLIDAR A2 has passed the strict testing to ensure the laser output power meet the standards of FDA Class I.

  1. Review by Justin verified purchaser

    Fantastic little device, works perfectly. Easy to write your own code to interface with it due to excellent protocol documentation. I'm using it on a small mobile vehicle with a Raspberry Pi (and Raspbian). Expensive, but worth it. I've Already had my moneys worth using this device. (Posted on 21/03/2017)
