RPLiDAR A1M8 360 Degree Laser Range Finder – 6m (Radius Range) is a low cost 360-degree 2D laser scanner (LIDAR) solution developed by SLAMTEC. The system can perform a 360-degree scan within a 6-meter range. The produced 2D point cloud data can be used in mapping, localization and object/environment modeling.
RPLIDAR A1’s scanning frequency reached 5.5 Hz when sampling 360 points each round. And it can be configured up to 10 Hz maximum. RPLIDAR A1 is basically a laser triangulation measurement system. It can work excellently in all kinds of indoor and outdoor environments without sunlight.
Note: The range of this RPLiDAR is 6-meter if we are considering radius and 12-meter if we are considering diameter. So we can also name as RPLiDAR A1M8 360 Degree Laser Range Finder – 12M.
