The prevalence of autonomous technology like robots and drones means navigation is a booming sector of the market, which the 'sweep' Scanning LiDAR System looks to make simpler. Currently funding on Kickstarter, the navigational scanner can be implemented into a variety of different uses to make keeping track of an environment easy.
Drones and robots -- especially those of an autonomous nature -- require the ability to scan their environment in order to place themselves and navigate accordingly. The 'sweep' Scanning LiDAR System works by enabling makers and robotics enthusiasts to customize their own solutions using the sensor.
The flexible nature of the sensor means it's capable of being used in a variety of different methods, whether by hobbyists or by students in a classroom.
