I would like to install 5 lidar on pixhawk cube for 4-direction obstacle avoidance & height calculation
I read this document but I couldn’t find way to connect several lidar simultaneously, this describes connecting only 1 lidar. :
and, do i need 5 bec for each 5 lidar module…?
thank you for your answer in advance

you can look for Teraranger evo hub with 4 evo 60…, the evo hub is serial.
The board require 12v power supply.
If you need an extra sensor and use it as altimeter you can add an evo 60 or evo 600 and wire it on the I2C port.
Alternatively if you don’t want I2C sensor you can wire it on can node.

Here is what you can do
A few month ago, I wrote about setting up an avoidance system using affordable 12 Meter Indoor and 6 Meter Outdoor Time of Flight (ToF) rangefinder made by Benewake : the TFMINI.
At the time, there was only the serial version available, and in order to add functionality , I used an Arduino to make it talk I2C. Based on this configuration, I decided to push the concept and constructed an avoidance system using up to 10 of these sensors, …
