RPLIDAR A1 is based on laser triangulation ranging principle and uses high-speed vision acquisition and processing hardware developed by Slamtec.The system measures distance data in more than 8000 times per second.
The core of RPLIDAR A1 runs clockwise to perform a 360 degree omnidirectional laser range scanning for its surrounding environment and then generate an outline map for the environment.
The sample rate of LIDAR directly decides whether the robot can map quickly and accurately.
RPLIDAR improves the internal optical design and algorithm system to make the sample rate up to 8000 times,which is the highest in the current economical LIDAR industry.
Most traditional non-solid LIDARs use slip ring to transfer power and data information, however, they only have thounds of hours of life due to mechanical wearing out. Slamtec has integrated the wireless power and optical communication technology to self-design the OPTMAG technology, which breakouts the life limitation of traditional LIDAR system. It fixes the electrical connecttion failure caused by the physical wearing out so as to prolong the life-span.
Users can adjust the scan rate by alternating the motor PWM signal
RPLIDAR is the designed sensor for applying SLAM algorithm
Just connecting the RPLIDAR and a computer via a micro USB cable,users can use the RPLIDAR without any coding job
