Spotlight on the SF23/B microLiDAR™

The SF23/B is a very low power sensor ideal for energy critical applications. This microLiDAR™ is a small form factor, general purpose LiDAR that measures the distance to objects by timing a laser flash. The SF23/B generates its own light source, making it accurate in all weather conditions like snow, rain, fog and direct sunlight.

Rise of the UAV: adopting drone tech

UAVs, commonly known as drones, have transformed the technological operating environment. Their ability to explore hard-to-reach areas make them an indispensable necessity for almost all industries. A thriving operating environment has also invited many drone manufacturers to market.

The power of SLAM

SLAM is a process whereby a robot or machine – in the form of an unmanned aerial or ground vehicle (UAV/UGV) – builds a map of its environment while simultaneously computing its own location within that map. SLAM is highly effective in mapping out unknown environments and is a valuable data tool for engineers in BVLOS path planning and obstacle avoidance.
