Panasonic – New 3D LiDAR sensor gives wide angle of view

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.
