TeraRanger Tower

TeraRanger Tower is a simultaneous multi-axis scanner for SLAM and collision avoidance capable of replacing traditional laser lidar scanners in some applications.

It is totally silent and has zero moving parts, resulting in greater efficiency and reliability. It combines 8 TeraRanger One sensors and the TeraRanger Hub to create a lightweight, fully eye-safe scanner for SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) and collision avoidance on fast-moving ground and airborne robots. Calibrated distance data is streamed from a USB or UART port as an array of synchronized distances, in millimetres.
