The all-in-one LiDAR system having portability and easy connection features is suitable for applications requiring complex data processing

Just as smartphones have revolutionised the mobile phone by combining features for communication, music and internet services all into a single device, this all-in-one solid state LiDAR comes with powerful control and touch screen integrated together into a powerful package, which makes the system more portable than before.

Moreover, the device comes with WiFi hotspot. A 17.7 cm (7-inch) multitouch screen allows users to control the device without connecting their personal computers or other IPCs (Industrial Personal Computer). It will work out of the box. Just turn on the power and run the application.

The importance of LiDAR sensor has become prevalent in many 3D sensing applications including autonomous driving, smart city (V2X), drone, mapping, etc. Traditionally, it takes another control board or computer to be able to use the LiDAR data. However, this handheld LiDAR integrated solution can be controlled with a touch screen monitor for easy control and portability for many applications such as outdoor mapping, 3D imaging and measurements.

The all-in-one complete solid-state LiDAR has two models: Titan M1-I (detection range 200 metres) and Titan M1-RI (detection range up to 600 metres), which are compact and powerful LiDAR and data processing units. The onboard quad-core ARM computer comes with Ubuntu 20.04 Aarch64 architecture OS and it has built-in NeuViewer client software for scanning effect display and ROS driver software package supporting LiDAR. At the same time, it provides an SDK software package supporting the LiDAR, which allows users to integrate into their own software, making it easier and faster to interact with the LiDAR and to obtain data.

“Using this platform, more creative solutions can be developed to help improve the development of technology and promote the wider adoption of innovative LiDAR applications,” said Jian Lin, Chairman of Neuvition.

The LiDAR system is now available from Neuvition.
