TeraRanger Tower


TeraRanger Tower is a simultaneous multi-axis scanner 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 Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) 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 synchronised distances, in millimetres.
