The LIDAR-Lite v4 LED sensor is the next step in the LIDAR-Lite line. A small, lightweight, low-power optical ranging sensor. It's the first to incorporate ANT profile wireless networking technology into an optical sensor. Its built-in nRF52840 processor means that developers can create custom applications, or be operated as a stand-alone device right out of the box by using the preloaded stock application.
- Resolution: 1 cm
- Range: 5 cm to 10 m
- Measurement repeatability: +/- 1 cm to 2 m, +/- 2 cm to 4 m, +/- 5 cm to 10 m
- Update rate: I2C = >200 Hz typical
- Interface: I2C or ANT
The LIDAR-Lite v4 requires an external 5VDC power source and soldering is required. This Time-of-Flight ranging module uses a LED and optics for ranging. It does not use a laser; therefore, it is inherently eye-safe under normal usage.
