This is the LIDAR-Lite v3HP, a compact, high-performance optical distance measurement sensor from Garmin™. This easy-to-use 40-meter laser-based optical ranging sensor has all the core features that made the LIDAR-Lite v2 so popular. It’s user-configurable so you can adjust between accuracy, operating range and measurement time.
The v3HP is very similar in function to that of the v3 but it can now sample faster at rates greater than 1kHz (where as the v3 is only capable of up to 500Hz). Another improvement is that this v3HP model is more power efficient and it is housed in a durable, IPX7-rated housing.
This version of the LIDAR-Lite still operates at 5V DC and it can be interfaced via I2C or PWM. Arduino library is available.
