Wednesday, 31 January 2018 - Written by admin

LIDAR-Lite is a laser ranging module from Pulsed Light, Inc. which is a lightweight and cost effective measurement device. LIDAR-Lite can be accessed over I2C or PWM. The JetsonHacks Github repository contains a small library for accessing the LIDAR-Lite v2 over I2C.

The new LIDAR-Lite has all of the same specifications as v1 (up to 40-meter range capability with 1cm resolution, small size, low power consumption and light weight) but there have been a number of upgrades, including:

  • Signal Processing Improvements offer 5X Faster Measurement Speeds
  • Improved I2C Communications
  • User Assignable I2C Addressing – Compatible with LIDAR-Lite v1 in all primary functions and compatibility will extend into future versions and product variants.
  • … and many more improvements
