3D LIDAR sensors with system allows the efficient generation of 3D environment maps at unmatched levels of detail. This are similar with radar, but it send light signal instead of radio. It is also used for obstacle and pedestrian detection for moving vehicle. Moreover, sometimes it is used for congestion detection for monitoring and object detection. These are applicable in various machines such as agricultural, construction, and robot machines. These are designed to scan a 2D area horizontally and vertically. This technology to be commonly used for mobile mapping systems, plant detection and mapping for agriculture, sidewalk delivery, factory and retail logistics, parking, manufacturing, search & rescue missions, and other mapping applications.
