RPLiDAR A1M8 360 Degree Laser Scanner Kit - 12M Range

Description of product


RPLIDAR A1 is a low cost 360 degree 2D laser scanner (LIDAR) solution developed by SLAMTEC. The system can perform 360degree scan within 6meter range. The produced 2D point cloud data can be used in mapping, localization and object/environment modeling.  

RPLIDAR A1’s scanning frequency reached 5.5 hz when sampling 360 points each round. And it can be configured up to 10 hz maximum. 

RPLIDAR A1 is basically a laser triangulation measurement system. It can work excellent in all kinds of indoor environment and outdoor environment without sunlight.
