An affordable LiDAR sensor

Recommended Posts

Looks like http://scanse.io have created an affordable LiDAR sensor that could be used in building a drone with collision avoidance capabilities. Their kickstarter project is over but this video gives a brief intro into their product called "Sweep". I am going to do some more research into this product as I would be interested in building a drone that can fly autonomously indoors where GPS does not work.

They had original planned delivery to be around this time (Oct, 2016) but I believe that they have been delayed since they used the sensors from PulsedLight which was acquired earlier in the year by Garmin who stopped shipping the Laser-Light v2 and only just re-introduced it as a V3.
