microLiDAR™ all the way!

Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology has changed the operating landscape for many innovative businesses. The benefits of this revolutionary remote sensing technology are arming businesses with the perfect tool for both depth and perception requirements such as collision avoidance, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), smart production, and much more.

With LiDAR offering so many use-cases, it’s important to find the ideal fit for your job from the very beginning. It’s why LightWare manufactures the world’s smallest, lightest, scanning microLiDAR™ sensors that fit multiple applications. 

Your ideal microLiDAR™

Finding the perfect LiDAR to achieve required results can be stressful, so LightWare makes it easy for you by designing and manufacturing affordable microLiDAR™ sensors in various shapes, sizes, and weights. It’s also why we’ve dedicated this week’s LiDAR Matters to providing a snapshot of all our microLiDAR™ sensors and how they will benefit you.
