RPLIDAR A1 is a low cost 360 degree 2D laser scanner (LIDAR) solution developed by SLAMTEC. The system can perform 360degree scan within 6meter range. The produced 2D point cloud data can be used in mapping, localization and object/environment modeling.  

RPLIDAR A1’s scanning frequency reached 5.5 hz when sampling 360 points each round. And it can be configured up to 10 hz maximum. 

RPLIDAR A1 is basically a laser triangulation measurement system. It can work excellent in all kinds of indoor environment and outdoor environment without sunlight. 

If you need a different range, we can provide two other models.

  3. Works well and easy to use
    Easy to install and use. Comes with good documentation and libraries are available. it produces accurate results. Minor point is that the communication cable sticks out the bottom, which makes propping it up necessary as the legs are a bit short.

  4. Strong Performance
    Though the drivers and documentation are not the strongest, the hardware itself and overall refresh rate have been quite satisfactory. Our team is getting good results tracking bodies and with connecting multiple lidar units at the same time.

    Hi there, the interface is UART and one PWM signal to control the motor. If the PSoc 63 can provides the signals, it will work. please refer to to page 11 Communication interface of the datasheet. **http://bucket.download.slamtec.com/8076da1cf98dd4a6db4029f0133a7f1024198dcb/LD310_SLAMTEC_rplidar_datasheet_A3M1_v1.2_en.pdf** thanks.
