See how Nikodem Bartnik integrated LIDAR room mapping into his DIY robotics platform

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — January 31st, 2022 As part of his ongoing autonomous robot project, YouTuber Nikodem Bartnik wanted to add LIDAR mapping/navigation functionality so that his device could see the world in much greater resolution and actively avoid obstacles. In short, LIDAR works by sending out short pulses of invisible light and measuring how much time it takes for…… See how Nikodem Bartnik integrated LIDAR room mapping into his DIY robotics platform weiterlesen

Making a mini 360° LiDAR for $40

Reading Time: 2 minutes Making a mini 360° LiDAR for $40 Arduino Team — December 21st, 2020 LiDAR (or “light detection and ranging”) sensors are all the rage these days, from their potential uses in autonomous vehicles, to their implementation on the iPhone 12. As cool as they are, these (traditionally) spinning sensors tend to be quite expensive, well…… Making a mini 360° LiDAR for $40 weiterlesen

DolphinView headset lets you see the world like Flipper!

Reading Time: 2 minutes DolphinView headset lets you see the world like Flipper! Arduino Team — July 26th, 2018 Dolphins are not only amazing swimmers and extremely intelligent, but can also navigate their surroundings using echolocation. While extremely useful in murky water, Andrew Thaler decided to make a device that would enable him to observe his (normally dry) environment with…… DolphinView headset lets you see the world like Flipper! weiterlesen

Lunar landing conspiracy put to rest(?) with LIDAR

Reading Time: 2 minutes Lunar landing conspiracy put to rest(?) with LIDAR Arduino Team — February 20th, 2018 On July 20th, 1969 man first set foot on the moon with the Apollo 11 mission, or so they say. If it was faked, or so the theory goes, one would think that there were a few details that don’t quite…… Lunar landing conspiracy put to rest(?) with LIDAR weiterlesen

LiDAR Scanning Technology Helps Archaeologists Uncover Forgotten Cities

Reading Time: 3 minutes LiDAR scanning technology offers tremendous potential to help archaeologists discover lost cities across the world. Archaeologists are able to speed up their process of discovery and exploration using a high-tech laser technique originally developed to scan the surface of the moon. The technology is based on light detection and ranging scanning (LiDAR) and was created…… LiDAR Scanning Technology Helps Archaeologists Uncover Forgotten Cities weiterlesen
