Ocular Robotics RE05 Laser Scanning System

Ocular Robotics’ RobotEye RE05 3D LIDAR, 3D Laser Scanning System delivers the signature scanning flexibility common to all Ocular Robotics’ RobotEye 3D scanners in a robust, lightweight device with a simple power and Ethernet interface.

The unique scanning capabilities of Ocular Robotics 3D laser scanners provide the ability to adapt the scanning behavior to suit the task. The RE05’s three scanning modes — Full Field, Bounded Elevation and Region Scanning — allow the user to define the desired scan region, vertical and horizontal data resolution, sample rate and more. Users transition to the new scan parameters within milliseconds. Other features of the RE05 include a range of 30 meters to most natural surfaces, a 30kHz sample rate, 0.01-degree angular resolution and a C SDK to speed integration of the RE05 into your projects.

Data Output

The RE05 system outputs 3D data points at up to 30kHz making it possible to quickly acquire very dense point cloud data from the region specified by the current scan settings or alternatively rapidly update 3D range information over a wide area at ranges up to 30 meters. At sample rates up to 10kHz data output can include a value indicating the intensity of the returned signal to give (x, y, z, intensity) data points at the 30kHz sample rate intensity information is not available so data is output in (x, y, z) format.


The RE05 3D Laser Scanning System has been designed to operate in a wide variety of industrial environments and to be mounted as a permanent part of vehicles and mobile equipment. The RE05 is available in both IP65 and IP67 models and will operate in ambient temperatures of up to 50°C.


The bidirectional communication of data and control with the RobotEye RE05 3D LIDAR is achieved via the system’s Ethernet port. This enables the system to be operated and data processing to occur anywhere on the network to which the RE05 is connected, limited only by the allowable length of Ethernet cable.
