Panasonic Industry Europe has announced the development of 3D Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) sensor equipment which measures the distance to an object by measuring the round-trip travel time of a pulse laser directed at the object. Using proprietary Panasonic laser-scanning technology, this 3D LiDAR is capable of scanning over a viewing angle as wide as 60° vertically and 270° horizontally.
