  • RPLIDAR 360° Laser Scanner
    Great product that delivers on all fronts
    Review by Raymond
    It's easy to judge the hardware as good or bad but the software, both drivers and example client code, are where products like this usually evade QA and reviewers. I was really happy to see that the drivers and SDK all just worked and the reference implementations were clear enough that I was able to get my own C application up and running in less than 3 hours.

    Performance is good, at first I was made nervous by the highly mechanical aspect of this: whirring, spinning things with belts tend to be fragile, but it's been running for days now without any problems.

  • RPLIDAR 360° Laser Scanner
    Excellent price/value ratio
    Review by Aron
    It's a very nice product, robust and reliable, also very precise. I'm really happy with it. The only reason for not giving a 5-star rating is the sound of friction that it makes during operation. It doesn't seem to do any harm, but I'm afraid that sooner or later some abrasion might appear. But that doesn't bother me too much, because for this price I can replace it twice before hitting the price range of the next option :) So, it's totally recommended.

  • RPLIDAR 360° Laser Scanner
    great affordable laser scanner
    Review by Terry
    With the SDK and documentation at http://rplidar.robopeak.com/download.html it is easy to build a software interface for your project. I had a quick and dirty C# interface running in a couple of hours. The sensor will be integrated in an existing autonomous robot project, http://www.silver-bullet-technology.com/george.htm, to upgrade both obstacle avoidance and localization.

  • RPLIDAR 360° Laser Scanner
    Great resource
    Review by Spiked3
    Finally, an affordable hobby level LIDAR.
    Provided with sample code, and not too difficult to write your own, this sensor component will be the basis for my SLAM implementation.
    My robot description is at http://www.spiked3.com/?p=575 along with a link to video of this LIDAR in use.

  • Hokuyo URG-04LX-UG01 Scanning Laser Rangefinder
    Very good.
    Review by Yoav
    I use the URG-04LX-UG01 to detect some objects intersecting with the scanning plain. The device performs as detailed and with some algorithmic tricks I overcome the 30 mm accuracy limit and achieve the results I want. I recommend this laser scanner.
