- Different sensors for use
- Wide selection of measuring ranges
- Choice of communication interfaces
- Short response time
- For external applications
The Hokuyo laser scanners are mostly used in mobile robotics, for such purposes like, object detection, measuring distance from an obstacle or setting a motion trajectory or robot location based on landmarks.
Application of LRF (Laser Range Finder) sensors is much wider. They can be impemented in building automation or for safety reasons, because they are perfect for detection of any object in range of the sensor. They provide detailed real time information on surroudings and alert equipment to object and obstacle presence.
Object presence in any zone will trigger an output signal. These configurable zones can be pre-loaded into the device using a PC and once programmed each device can be used on a standalone basis.
With many different configurations of weight, scanning range, scanning angle, scanning speed, resolution, protection rating and interface there really is a Hokuyo sensor for every need and project. ?
In industry it can be used for dynamic dimension measurement of the object or for object presence detection in definied space.
