LIDAR-Lite v3 is a compact, high-performance optical distance measurement sensor. When space and weight requirements are tight, the LIDAR-Lite v3 soars. The LIDAR-Lite v3 is the ideal solution for drone, robot or unmanned vehicle applications. This easy to use 40-meter laser-based optical ranging sensor is small in form and light in weight with low power consumption of less than 130mA during acquisition. It has all the core features of LIDAR-Lite v2.
Each LIDAR-Lite v3 features an edge-emitting, 905nm (1.3 watts), single-stripe laser transmitter, 4m Radian x 2m Radian beam divergence, and an optical aperture of 12.5mm. The third version of the LIDAR-Lite still operates at 5V DC with a current consumption rate of <100mA at continuous operation. On top of everything else, the LIDAR-Lite is user-configurable, allowing adjustment between accuracy, operating range and measurement time. It can be interfaced via I2C or PWM.
Note: The LIDAR-Lite v3 is designated as Class 1 during all procedures of operation. However, operating the sensor without its optics or housing or making modifications to the housing can result in direct exposure to laser radiation and the risk of permanent eye damage. Direct eye contact should be avoided, and under no circumstances should you ever stare straight into the emitter.
