Hi, This video is a review of the Lidar Lite V2 sensor made by PulsedLight. This sensor is basically a high accuracy distance measuring device that is small and light enough to be used on many…

  1. HI! it's a really great job here !

    btw do you think if it's possible to simulate the lidar through mavlink command ( Distance_sensor #132,) and inject the data like this ?

  2. Thanks for great video. It seems like the Lidar is for only height. Can you also detect obstacles in horizon? How many sensors would be needed to have complete collision avoidance system?

  3. Great video. I almost think you need two of them. one on the gimbal that gives you data of where you are now, and another that is forward facing indicating where you will be. Facing down good for gathering data or lidar imaging, and facing forward for navigation.

    It's like driving a car and only looking at the road beneath you. You are reacting to what is happening, not what will be happening.

  4. Great video, I have a question though or two. Can I connect more than one sensor to each other and then plug all into one input to the pixhawk, second if I can I was thinking of putting one on each side of the quadcopter to achieve precise obstacle avoidance. I always wanted to try but didn't due to the cost of 6 of them so I'm looking for a cheaper alternatives, like the sharp sensor and ultra sonic. What do you think. Worth a try?

  5. If you could track it from a known coordinate from a robotic total station you would have a survey instrument.  You could check your RTK from a ground station with a prism mounted upside down on your gimbal.  Nice work.

  6. Great work! im interesting in invest a drone for make surface 3d and terrain models with photogrammetry and lidar. I want start this with a phantom 3 professional, but i don't know about a cheap lidar mounted in small drone and can realize survey, you know something about this? please help me!.. Greetings from chile!!

  8. Could you set the servos to angle in the direction of travel to speed up the response to changing terrain? I know this wouldn't be useful when you are mapping at slow speeds…
