Lidar-Lite
« on: February 18, 2014, 12:19:33 AM »
Hi,

I just found this https://www.dragoninnovation.com/projects/32-lidar-lite-by-pulsedlight project asking for money to back the manufacturing of a TOF sensor. I think this would be a great sensot for hobby robotics - seeing the price of 80$ for a sensor which measures the distance up to 40m with 100Hz.
The I2C interface is 5V tolerant.

Wanted to do some commercial for them. I hope they make it. Would be a great addition for my robot projects. :-)

Robert

There's another one in South Africa doing more or less the same thing for $100 right now.

Maybe this is a technology whose time has come?
And in a few years we'll get them on a 2-gram carrier board from China for $5 :-)

Thanks for the extra link. Not completely comparable in specs but at least the one you linked is a ready product.
