Want to build a robot that knows what is around it and can navigate based on that information?

To do this well you need to be able to map what is happening in the room and create a map of all the obstacles. The RPLIDAR constantly spins and uses LIDAR to detect every object in the room allowing it to create a very detailed map that it can then use SLAM (Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping) to navigate obstacles. 

FEATURES

  • 25m Range accurate to within 1 per cent
  • 16000 samples per second
  • Improved internal optical design and algorithms that allows for faster and more accurate map building.
  • Supports scanning in two modes
    • Enhanced mode Operates at the fastest sampling rate and highest range based on the favourable conditions an indoor environment allows
    • Enhanced mode Provides the most stable performance and resistance to interference from natural light.
  • 360 degree omnidirectional ranging runs clockwise to create an outline map for the environment
  • Quality construction and exceptional design provide industry-leading performance in a package that is only 4cm tall
  • Brushless motor for smooth running and ultra low noise.
  • Wireless power and optical communication technologies used internally prevent wear on parts that can last for up to 5 years
  • Low power infrared class one laser uses short active time intervals so is safe for humans and pets

  • Obstacle Avoidance
  • Autonomous Mapping
  • Route Planning
