Hokuyo UST-20LX

The Hokuyo UST-20LX scanning laser rangefinder is a small, accurate, high-speed device for obstacle detection and localization of autonomous robots and automated material handling systems. This model uses Ethernet interface for communication and can obtain measurement data in a wide field of view up to a distance of 20 meters with millimeter resolution. Due to its low power consumption, this scanner is able to be used on battery-operated platforms.
