New long-range LiDAR Altimeter SF30/D

Long-range laser altimeter for terrain following

The SF30 high speed laser rangefinder is designed to detect obstacles or create maps from moving ground-based or aerial vehicles.

Using a time-of-flight system to make very fast and accurate distance and speed measurements, accuracy is mot affected by the color or textures of the surface, nor the angle of incidence of the laser beam.

the SF30 is virtually immune to background light, wind and noise, making it an ideal sensor to detect unexpected obstacles.

Also suited to high-speed scanning and sense and avoid applications. This microLiDAR ™ unit boasts an effective range of 200m and only weighs 35g.

What about Arducopter drivers ? Are they ready for SF30/d ? It will work with Arducopter 4 ? This SF30/d will be connected via SERIAL port ? Do you plan to use CAN bus ?

Hi Norim,

Apologies for the Delay, Serial works fine on Arducopter 4.0.

We have noticed that the I2C on firmware version 4 is not responding, however we are working on the issue. Firmware before 4 works on Serial and I2C.

We are planning on CAN, it is on the roadmap for our company

I just want to notice that this SF30/D currently have some problems in Arducopter 4.03. The altitude is not stable with this lidar. My copter fly much better when it’s switched off.

I have to investigate more this problem. I get new firmware from Lightware. Maybe I am missing something.
