LiDAR Navigation Module Outfits Drones, Robots And Autonomous Devices

Groomed for autonomous control of drones, robots, and other devices, the NaviPack LiDAR navigation module promises to make integrating control an easy and very low cost endeavor. It integrates a SLAM algorithm chip with LiDAR together, allegedly making the module the first true plug-and-play LiDAR solution that instantly powers drones and robots with 360 degree sensing capabilities. Once installed and powered up, NaviPack immediately scans its surroundings, builds a detailed map of the area, and takes over control of the device. Its scanner has a frequency of 3,000 points per second and identifies objects up to 15 meters away. It continuously scans the area and makes split second decisions to steer clear of people or objects for safe path selection, obstacle avoidance, and accurate mapping. Other features include compatibility with Windows, Linux, Android, and ROS systems and connection protocols including Serial, USB, or Wi-Fi. For robotic designs, NaviKit is available and includes NaviCamera, a 3D TOF in-depth camera and NaviPanel, a wheeled robot platform with five ultrasonic sensors and four geodetic sensors. It can carry loads up to 30 kg. The NaviPack system is currently being introduced with special pricing and incentives on Indiegogo to reward early supporters. For more details, visit
