The Scanse Sweep is a scanning LIDAR sensor designed to bring powerful 360-degree sensing capabilities to everyone for an affordable price. With a built-in LIDAR-Lite, the Sweep possesses scanning capabilities that allow you to adjust the rotation speed on the fly so you can slow it down for more detail, or speed it up for faster reaction times! With a range of 40 meters, a sample rate of 1,000 samples/sec, the Scanse Sweep is a perfect sensor for Robotics, UAVs, site surveying, and Internet of Things (IoT)/security applications.
The Sweep is a single-plane scanner. This means that as its head rotates counterclockwise, it records data in a single plane. The beam starts out at approximately 12.7mm in diameter and expands by approximately 0.5 degrees. Sweep can be connected to low-level microcontrollers directly using its serial port, or to a PC using the provided USB-to-serial converter. It even has two serial port connectors with identical signals, which allows for more mounting options.
Note: This device contains a component which emits laser radiation. The laser product is designated Class 1 during all operating modes. This means that the laser is safe to look at with the unaided eye, however it is advisable to not look directly into the beam when in use. Operating the sensor without its optics or housing or making modifications to the housing can result in direct exposure to laser radiation and the risk of permanent eye damage.
Note: The Scanse Sweep is available for pre-order. We expect orders to start shipping in the next couple of weeks. Adding a pre-order product to an order may cause a delay. Be sure to uncheck “ship complete order” in your cart to avoid delays in shipping in-stock items.
