Let’s talk more about LiDAR’s in challenging environments due to weather conditions or in dark spaces such as mines.
It has kind of gone unnoticed that SICK has been pushing its Time-of-Flight (ToF) LiDAR technology along recently, and is now using patented technology which uses multiple small laser pulses and statistical techniques to calculate distance, HDDM™.
The result – better precision, less noise, and greater immunity to environmental effects, than traditional ToF.
It’s a good thing that SICK just released the first safety laser scanner/LiDAR certified for use in outdoor applications, the outdoorScan3! Click here more information.
