YDLiDAR pou rl'éducation supérieure et le prototypage rapide

YDLIDAR: A decent range for prototyping and robotics in higher education

YDLIDAR has designed a range of LiDARs for autonomous navigation, obstacle avoidance, distance measurement, mapping and 3D reconstruction. Their Gx and Xx LiDARs are triangulation-based systems. Despite being inexpensive, they are good for high-frequency, high-accuracy measurements. Which makes them perfectly suitable for use in higher education and technical colleges. They’re also small, and can be[…]
