RPLIDAR is a low cost 360 degree 2D laser scanner (LIDAR) solution developed by RoboPeak. The system can perform 360 degree scan within 6 meter range. The produced 2D point cloud data can be used in mapping, localization and object/environment modeling.
RPLIDAR’s scanning frequency reached 5.5 hz when sampling 360 points each round. And it can be configured up to 10 hz maximum.
RPLIDAR is basically a laser triangulation measurement system. It can work excellent in all kinds of indoor environment and outdoor environment without sunlight.
RPLIDAR can be used in below application area：
RPLIDAR is based on laser triangulation ranging principle and uses high-speed vision acquisition and processing hardware developed by RoboPeak. The system measures distance data in more than 2000 times’ per second and with high resolution distance output (<1% of the distance).
The high-speed ranging scanner system is mounted on a spinning rotator with a build-in angular encoding system. During rotating, a 360 degree scan of the current environment will be performed.
