RPLIDAR A1M8 - 360 Degree Laser Scanner Development Kit: a high-precision rotary laser
The RPLIDAR A1M8 laser scanner is a 360° rotary 2D scanner system capable of detecting obstacles at a distance of 6 metres. Very effective in all types of environments, provided that you avoid brightly sunlit locations, this RPLIDAR scanner can get accurate data on the position of objects within the reach of its laser triangulation measurement system. The laser rotates clockwise and performs three readings.
Low cost in all respects, the RPLIDAR A1M8 scanner does its job using less than 5 mW. Its accuracy and sampling speed are also convincing, including when it’s operating at its maximum range. It can determine the general shape of a room and its content, and proves very effective in all surveillance, mapping or autonomous navigation applications.
A 360° A1M8 laser scanner: what for?
Low cost and compact, this 2D laser scanner can be fitted on a mobile robot already equipped with autonomous navigation solutions (IMU, sensors, etc.), like a cleaning robot. It can also be used as the central component of a surveillance and detection system, or of a device created for mapping and 3D modelling purposes. Finally, you can create a small mobile robot that’s able to avoid obstacles. In short, this scanner has everything it takes to fully satisfy your needs!
