The SF45/B is a small, lightweight scanning lidar ideal for obstacle detection by small autonomous vehicles. The horizontal field of view can be adjusted from a few degrees up to 320 degrees to suit the application. Objects up to 50m away can be detected and avoided by finding clear pathways using simple navigation commands. The SF45/B is tolerant to changes in background lighting conditions, wind and noise.
The SF000/B is a 50m, ultra-small and light laser rangefinder designed for size and weight constrained applications. It uses a Time-Of-Flight system to make very fast, accurate distance and speed measurements.
The LightWare SF30/D is a high speed, light weight laser rangefinder. Weighing just 35g and with range of up to 200m and 20,000 readings per second, it is ideal for altimeter, mapping and obstacle detection in UAVs, drones and robotic vehicles.
The LightWare SF40/C is a long range (0-100m) rotating laser scanner (LiDAR) designed specifically to provide UAVs with SLAM intelligence.
The SF11/C is a long range (0-120m), light-weight, laser altimeter. The SF11/C includes digital (serial and I2C) and analog (12 bit) outputs along with a micro USB configuration port. Complete with power, interface and micro USB cables. It is directly compatible with Pixhawk flight controllers.
The LightWare SF30/B is a high speed, light weight laser rangefinder for mapping and obstacle detection by robotic vehicles such as UAVs with a range up to 50m.
Open frame version of the LW20, the SF20C is a small form factor, 100 meter range laser sensor suitable as original equipment in drones and other products where fast, accurate distance measurement is required.
The LW20/C is a small form factor, 100 meter range, laser distance sensor with fast, accurate measurements. The LW20/C includes driver hardware and software to control a servo driven LiDAR scanner for sense-and-avoid applications.
The LightWare SF23/B is a very low power LiDAR that can be used in energy critical applications where batteries or solar cells are used. Weighing 10g, it can run from voltages as low as 3.2V and has an average current consumption of less than 2mA when taking one reading per second. The measuring range of the SF23/B is 0.2 to 50 meters, and features a serial interface.
The LightWare SF22/C is a LiDAR API development kit that can be used to test out new applications before investing in more expensive devices. The measuring range is from 0.2m to 100m and is Class 1M eye safe. It is a small form factor, general purpose laser sensor that measures the distance to objects by ToF (time of flight) of a laser flash 10 to 100 times a second. The SF22/C can interface using serial, I2C and USB, and is tolerant to changes in background lighting conditions, wind and noise.
